Violence consists of several instances of action/adventure oriented fighting, a dragon chasing several characters, a Gingerbread Man being "tortured" and some slapstick-style material.
Some of those and other scenes that involved potential peril may be unsettling, suspenseful or even scary for some younger kids, but that all depends on their age, level of maturity and tolerance for such material.
When Shrek married Fiona, the last thing he wanted was to rule Far Far Away, but when his father-in-law, King Harold, suddenly croaks, Shrek is quickly fitted for the crown.
The natural order of fairy tales is interrupted in the sequel to the Academy Award(r)-winning blockbuster "Shrek." "Shrek 2" sends Shrek, Donkey and Princess Fiona on a whirlwind of new adventures with more fairy-tale favorites to lampoon along the way.
Once upon a time in a far away swamp there lived an ornery ogre named Shrek whose precious solitude is suddenly shattered by an invasion of annoying fairytale characters.
There are blind mice in his food, a big, bad wolf in his bed, three little homeless pigs and more, all banished from their kingdom by the evil Lord Farquaad.
Accompanied by the Donkey, Shrek reluctantly begins his journey to retrieve Fiona (voice of CAMERON DIAZ), a princess who turns out to be cursed with a spell that can only be broken by love's first kiss.
