Synopsis:
The following is from the official DVD description:

"A Shrek-Style Christmas, As Funny As It Gets!

The Christmas tree isn't the only thing green in this new holiday classic. Shrek is back and trying to get into the spirit of the season. After promising Fiona and the kids a Christmas they'll remember, he is forced to take a crash course in the holiday. But just when he thinks he has everything for their quiet family Christmas just right, Donkey, Puss in Boots, Gingy and the rest of the gang decide to crash the party. Shrek The Halls is the greatest holiday tale that's never been told... until now. "

"Shrek the Halls" is not rated.

Mini-Review:
I have to say that I found "Shrek the Halls" to be funnier than "Shrek the Third." It's only 22 minutes long, but there were more laughs in it for me than in the theatrical sequel. In it, Shrek learns what it means to have a family Christmas... and everything that goes along with it. Of course Donkey and company mess things up. One of the funniest moments for me was when Donkey, Puss in Boots, and the Gingerbread Man all tell their versions of The Night Before Christmas. Since Santa eats cookies, you can imagine how Gingy's version goes. The animation looks great, all the original voice actors are back, and it's short and sweet. If you're a Shrek fan, you'll want to check it out.

There isn't much in the way of bonus features, but if your kids like sing alongs, there are plenty here for them. They may drive parents insane, though.
