Cute but not as fun as past movies; some cartoon violence.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Shrek the Third 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.
