Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this movie has some crude potty humor and some moments of mild peril and tension. The king hires a hit man to get rid of Shrek -- luckily it's a small cat. Shrek and friends steal potions from the scheming fairy godmother. The only casualties are an enchanted character and a couple of fish.
Plenty of innuendo, especially when Donkey and Shrek take the potions and become "sexy." Some ogre kissing, and mermaid kissing. Pinocchio can't lie that he's wearing ladies' underwear.
Comic violence, no one hurt except a giant gingerbread man.
Some mild naughty words: "ass," "oh my God," etc.
Shrek learns to accept himself. But movie also includes some crude potty humor.
Plenty of fake commercialism in the commercial district of Far Far Away: retail shops, a version of Starbucks, and fast food.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Brief drug joke -- but the drug is really catnip.
