SHREK is a 2001 animated comedy adventure about an ogre who finds his swamp being taken over by various fairytale creatures who have been exiled by the evil Lord Farquaad. When Shrek tries to persuade Lord Farquuard to take the fairytale creatures back, he agrees on condition that Shrek rescues Princess Fiona, who he wants for his bride.

Language

Bad language includes uses of 'ass', 'crap' and 'damn'.

Violence

There are some scenes of mild comic violence, including a spoof of a wrestling match featuring a headbutt delivered by a donkey. There is no detail of injuries and no characters come to any serious harm, with all the violence occurring in a fantastical context.

There are some moments of mild innuendo, including a reference to Snow White not being 'easy', even though she lives with seven dwarfs.
