In this fourth installment of the franchise, Shrek (voice of Mike Myers) wishes for a return to the good old days. But when his whimsy is granted by Rumpelstiltskin (voice of Walt Dohrn), Shrek quickly learns what a bad idea it was. And the problem get worse after he discovers he is no longer remembered by his wife (voice of Cameron Diaz) and friends (voices of Antonio Banderas and Eddie Murphy).
Why Is Shrek Forever After Rated PG?
Shrek Forever After is rated PG for mild action, some rude humor and brief language.
Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Shrek Forever After...
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.
