Near the beginning of the movie, Shrek's children's birthday takes place in the Poison Apple, the old pub used in the previous installments. See more »
After Shrek and Fiona share true love's kiss, evoking his contract's escape clause, he is returned to the original timeline having just given a roar at his children's birthday party. This occurrence had nothing to do with Rumpelstiltskin; had the terms of the contract truly been reversed, Shrek should have been returned to the moment he signed it, or when he first met Rumpel rather than any point beforehand.

A Good Fun Fairytale For The Family, and An End To A Saga
Well it was bound to happen, most animation saga's or trilogy's end eventually and some better than others. With Shrek Forever After this is the case, still packed full of gags, funny moments and hilarious one liners its a good end to a fun enjoyable franchise. We all hoped it would also end this way, in a positive way as the last 11 years has been Shrek sequels some better than others. With this final adventure, old characters are reunited and new ones enter the fray.
Plus we also get a fresh new setting for this latest and final tale, some good dialogue too and of course improved animation. Considering this was always gonna go up against Toy Story 3, we knew it would be a close fight for the throne of the summer blockbuster. Otherwise, however Shrek Forever After has done a good job of grabbing it for me until I see Toy Story 3, until then I believe this is the best animation summer blockbuster of the year.
If you want quick gags, laughs and family fun Shrek Forever After is for you and also for fans of the franchise.
