A poorly under appreciated animation studio. Many people believe it to be 'A rip-off of Pixar' when in reality the only similarity is that they both use 3D animation in many of their productions, nothing else.
Dreamworks started out shaky and because of it's poor start has not been given the chance to redeem itself by the public eye, mostly snooty, solely Pixar fans who scoff at anything made by Dreamworks without giving it a fair chance.

It's films are often more comedic then touching and are slewed with pop culture, making them more likely to be forgotten and less likely to be appreciated, since obviously every story must touch your heart, make you cry and has to have an over bearingly sentimental meaning.

Also, they like to make sequels and according to the public that is punishable by 30 years in the dungeon, no trial.
Payton: Hey, did you see that new DreamWorks movie, How to Train Your Dragon?
Kaitlyn: Oh goodness, that movie is my absolute favorite. Nothing can compare to it.

Every time I see the DreamWorks logo before a movie preview, I squeal a little in my seat.

Jul 26 Word of the Day
Noun: a friend who is usually only called upon by a friend when a more primary/prominent friend is unavailable.

Taken from the term “second string” in an athletic competition situation. In football, if the star quarterback gets injured during a play, the second string is called off the bench to replace him/her. A “Second String Friend” is essentially benched until needed, if ever.

Synonyms: Plan B, Second Choice, Secondary Friend, Benched Until Needed
I got a call from X the other night. She had an extra ticket to a concert she bought for a friend, but they couldn’t make it so she called me to ask if I wanted to go because I am her Second String Friend.

A shitty ripoff of Pixar. Makes sub-par animated films that are only blockbusters because of the A-list celebrities in their movies. None of their animated films will be remembered in the next 10 years because they suck.

A greedy company that tries to make every okay film they have into a friggin franchise. will take a good movie of theirs and ruin it by making 2839238 horrible sequels just for the money.
Idiot: Dude did you know DreamWorks is making a Shrek 4?

Smart Guy: AGAIN? the first movie was good, the second was okay, and the third was bullshit. Fuck DreamWorks.

There’s two. The film studio, and the animation studio that’s now owned by Universal.
If you’re talking of the former...
They haven’t updated their opening logo yet?? By Gaffrey, they’re way too old!
If you’re speaking of the latter...
What’s a DreamWorks film without fart jokes? Just because kids will always laugh at them doesn’t mean films should keep including them! Thank you, Jeremy Scott!
DreamWorks is okay for us, but stop putting in fart jokes. Very Shrek of you.
