Shrek asks a servant to scratch his butt at the beginning of the movie then a curtain folds up and an audience behinds a stage sees them.

Shrek can't believe that Princess Fiona is pregnant, and rhetorically asks how that could happen. Puss in Boots then matter-of-factly starts to explain about getting a certain feeling for a woman and "a powerful urge," but Shrek says he knows that part. Despite having fathered a bunch of donkey-dragon hybrid kids, Donkey naively then wants Puss in Boots to continue, but then it cuts to Shrek standing at the railing of the boat.

Some princesses are depicted burning a brassiere for about a second.

In a dream sequence, Shrek is on a stage with thousands of little ogre babies laughing at Shrek because he is naked. You see his bare butt and his stomach and him cover/hold his genital area.

A restaurant is called "Hooters" in one scene.


Part of Shrek's stuffy and stiff royal costume pops off and hits Donkey. That sets off a comedy-based chain reaction of chaos where various things or characters accidentally smash into other things or characters, including a small fire breaking out. An ogre baby vomits in Shrek's face.

Overall fighting and slapstick throughout the film.


Puss starts to say to Donkey, "You, my friend, are royally screwed," though "screwed" was replaced by a horn sound in the TV version.


A character stumbles out of a smoke-filled carriage, commenting on the frankincense and myrrh (but it's obviously a visual spoof of a van filled with pot smoke).

After Merlin transports Shrek, Puss, and Donkey, Donkey says he "Hasn't had a trip like that since college" referencing LSD.

This film contained no obvious scenes of tobacco use.


The Dream Scene Shrek has might be creepy to younger children even though its played for comedy !

Overall Rating: 16/50 - Parental guidance suggested for kids under 9

Final Note: A family film overall, but families with older kids and some teenagers might appreciate it more.

Rated PG for some crude humor, suggestive content and swashbuckling action
