Contains mild innuendo


1- Shrek and Fiona passes gas in mud pool

2- Very mild sex references that are likely to go over the heads of young children.

3- A Wolf looks at a magazine called 'Pork Illustrated', featuring a pig in a bikini on the cover.

4- The Fairy Godmother shows a bit of cleavage.

5- Lyrics in a song talk about spooning on the Moon.

6- When pinnochio need to tell a lie to help shrek, puss and donkey escape from dungeon, donkey asked pinnochio if he's wearing ladies underwear. And gingerbread man says it's a thong.

5/10 - Contains mild comic fight scenes and slapstick violence

- Puss in Boots prances at and jumps on Shrek, digging at him with his claws (no blood). Donkey tries to kick the cat, but instead gets Shrek in the crotch, doubling him over in pain (and he makes a verbal reference to being hit in the testicles).

The Fairy Godmother tries to kill Shrek with her wand, but her magic deflects off King Harold's armor and zaps her instead, before she explodes into bubbles (and only her wand and glasses remain of her)(she is presumed to have died).

- After Fiona throws the mermaid back into the ocean, two large sharks are seen immediately going after her.

- Mainly slapstick/cartoon fantasy violence throughout.

- There is a battle towards the end of the movie (NOT very violent, mainly played for laughs).

2/10 - Contains very mild language

2 mild obscenities, 1 religious exclamation. Uses of the word "sexy". 1 use of "ass".

2/10 - Contains one very mild drug reference

- During the spoof of "Cops," we see knights arresting Puss in Boots and finding catnip on him (he claims it's not his in a drug bust joke).

- Men in many scenes enter a bar where many people are drinking

2/10 - Contains brief scary moments

One scene shows Fairy Godmother making potions laughing maniacally, which could be a bit spooky to younger viewers. The people in the bar may scare some young kids

Overall Rating: 14/50 - Suitable for kids 6+

Rated PG for some crude humor, a brief substance reference and some suggestive content
