Violence & Gore

  • A boys nose bleeds twice in the film.
  • When Merlin eats some small rocks, it is shown that in his mouth, his teeth are shown with blood in them
  • Shrek kills a man off screen. This is likely an accident.
  • Shrek accidentally pushes on a ship and sends it sailing. He tries to stop the ship by throwing a torch at it. But it only makes the ship sink. The people on the ship jump into the water. This is likely played for laughs.
  • Shrek has an infant-induced nightmare, where newborn ogre babies are crashing things, but are not hurt, but this scene can scare many kids. A stampede of them chase Shrek. See Frightening and Intense scenes for more.
  • 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.
  • Overall fighting and slapstick throughout the film.


Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Shrek's baby nightmare sequence is too frightening for kids, and soon-to-be parents, especially the part where the ogre baby-faced Puss in Boots and Donkey, when Donkey says "DADA!!!".
  • The Dream Scene Shrek has might be creepy to younger children even though its played for comedy !
  • Final Note: A family film overall, but families with older kids and some teenagers might appreciate it more.
