Liked the pixar letter. Disney's tired old stereotypical scripting of damsels in distress, eye candy & being rescued/falling in love send messages to kids that girls need to be princesses & need to get the guy for it to be the perfectly balanced story.

Dreamworks had fun shattering some of those tired ideas still using the princess/rescued damsel/fall in love story.
In the end the princess is a heavyset ogre, the rescue was paid for by a weak king, and the love went through twists & turns before true selves were revealed.
She married the Ogre who lives in the swamp, not the handsome yet awful shallow prince, who
otherwise had it all.
