Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this is the third movie in the Shrek franchise. There are several references to alcohol and drugs that are clearly meant to entertain parents and likely will go over kids' head. Real brands such as Foot Locker, Versace, and Hooters are parodied for humor. Profanity and insults include "butt," "dork," "loser," "poop," "stupid," "twit," and "suck." There's quite a bit of innuendo: Puss starts to explain where children come from (a man is "full of urges" for his wife) but is cut off; Doris says Charming makes her "hotter than July." The villains and heroes of fairy tale lore engage in face-to-face battles with sticks, swords, fists, and more. Some bullying -- one of the main teen characters is shown hanging from a clock in the auditorium of the high school; characters openly discuss "wedgies" and "swirlies." There's also frequent slapstick violence -- pratfalls and clumsiness leading to exaggerated destruction.

Sexual Content

Shrek and Fiona are affectionate and kiss; they're shown sleeping in the same bed (it's implied that Shrek is naked, but you don't see anything). Two other couples hug, and Puss flirts with various female cats. Puss starts to explain where children come from (a man is "full of urges" for his wife) but is cut off; Doris says Charming makes her "hotter than July." Merlin wears an ill-fitting robe that a character says "doesn't quite over his...," and is interrupted before the final word is said.

Violence

The villains and heroes of fairy tale lore engage in face-to-face battles with sticks, swords, fists, and more. Some bullying -- one of the main teen characters is shown hanging from a clock in the auditorium of the high school; characters openly discuss "wedgies" and "swirlies." Frequent slapstick violence -- pratfalls and clumsiness leading to exaggerated destruction.

Language

PG words and insults: "butt," "dork," "loser," "poop," "stupid," "twit." A well-timed Viking horn bleeps out the final word when a character tells another that he is "royally [bleeped]." A sign taped to a character's backside reads "I sucketh."

Social Behavior

The princesses are selfish and a bit stereotypical at first but eventually prove to be good role models since they defend themselves rather than waiting to be rescued. Fairy tale villains choose to be good. Typical high school relationships (popular kids picking on those who don't fit in, for example) are played for laughs. The importance of choosing to be yourself no matter what others think of you is shown through discussion and action.

Consumerism

Real brands are parodied for humor. Versace logo is shown as "Versarchery," men flock to "Ye Olde Hooters," and a box has the label "Ye Olde Foot Locker." Shrek also is the spokes-ogre for a wide variety of real-life products, including candy and fast food -- while simultaneously appearing in anti-obesity ads for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Fuzzy navels are ordered at a bar where characters drink out of steins and glasses. Puss proposes that he and Shrek drink mojitos. Students at Artie's high school tumble out of a smoke-filled carriage talking about frankincense and myrrh in an obvious pot reference.
