Content issues in this animated film center mainly on cartoon and comedic depictions of violence. Characters battle with primitive weapons, a dragon spews flames at people, and magical spells cause characters to disintegrate. There is no blood or explicit details to injuries. A donkey pulling a carriage is whipped repeatedly. Characters are frequently seen with alcohol on social occasions and Shrek resorts to drinking to relieve stress. Language is limited to some name-calling, verbal arguments and criticisms. No sexual content was noted. A father changes diapers on a baby and comments on the smell. We also see him get squirted with what appears to be urine, but is actually water.
