Shrek

shrekI remember watching the opening sequence, where Shrek narrates from a fairy tale, then rips a page out, and (presumably) wipes his butt with it. Then the opening titles begin, set to a Sugar Ray pop song. I thought to myself, this is so unlike Disney, it's wonderful. It made the House of Mouse look like a bunch of musty old farts.
