Shrek The Third

While some men dream of fame, fortune and power, Shrek (voice of Mike Myers) has his heart set on living out his days obscurely in the swamp he calls home. So when it looks like his royal father-in-law (John Cleese) might croak, which would put him next in line for the throne, the ogre nearly turns green (okay, more green than usual). In order to avoid such an unwelcome future, Shrek gets help form his faithful friends Donkey (Eddie Murphy) and Puss in Boots (Antonio Banderas). Get the movie review and more. »

Why Is Shrek The Third Rated PG?


Despite the PG rating, this film briefly (but heavily) implies teens are partaking of illegal drugs, and contains cigarettes (a brief shot shows a smoke smoldering in an ashtray) and alcohol use as well as brief drug references. After the king dies, an attempt to overthrow the kingdom of Far, Far Away results in the city being pillaged by villains who capture Fiona and her princess friends and throw them in the dungeon. Shrek and his buddies are attacked by pirates and animated trees who later capture the ogre and chain him up. One of Shrek’s fans is shot in the chest with an arrow and Artie has a sword held to his throat. Several characters are impaled, slashed or beheaded by swords (limited view of the action). The script includes infrequent sexual references, a cross-dressing princess, brief buttock nudity and some scatological terms.
