It’s all here – each and every man and Manhattan, and of course, many more Cosmopolitans.

Shrek 1-4 Box Set
All four instalments of the successful CGI-animated Dreamworks franchise. Shrek (voiced by Mike Myers) is a reclusive ogre living in a swamp on the edges of a fairytale kingdom who is given the task of rescuing Princess Fiona (Cameron Diaz). Shrek's task is complicated by the unwanted company of a tirelessly wise-cracking Donkey (Eddie Murphy), and while their adventure bears all the hallmarks of a classic fairytale, nothing in Shrek turns out quite as you might expect.
Shrek was a smash hit that saw three sequels follow, attracting a star-studded voice cast including John Cleese, Julie Andrews, Jennifer Saunders, Rupert Everett, Antonio Banderas and Justin Timberlake.
