Shrek

"The greatest fairy tale never told."

It ain't easy bein' green -- especially if you're a likable (albeit smelly) ogre named Shrek. On a mission to retrieve a gorgeous princess from the clutches of a fire-breathing dragon, Shrek teams up with an unlikely compatriot -- a wisecracking donkey.

Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Shrek is cooking weedrats over the fire, Fiona is already eating her weedrat. Shrek then sits down next to Fiona to eat. If you look at Fiona's weedrat on the stick, she hasn't taken a single bite out of it.
  • This film was the first winner for the inaugural Best Animated Feature Film category of the Academy Awards 2001.
  • Robin Williams was going to have a role in the film, but he suffered a bitter falling-out with Jeffrey Katzenberg when Katzenberg was still working at Disney, and refused to work with him.
  • Chris Farley was originally cast as Shrek and even recorded part of the dialogue. However, after his death, the role was given to fellow Saturday Night Live performer, Mike Myers. Shrek's "air quotes" in the film is an homage to Farley, whose character Bennett Brauer also used air quotes.
