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
  • A fairy godmother was originally included in the movie, but was cut out in the beginning of the movie's production. She eventually appeared in Shrek 2.
  • Mike Myers was in New York when they realized that the line "What are you doing in my swamp!" had never been read. So producer Jeffrey Katzenberg flew to New York, and had Mike Meyers read the line in the back of a limo.
  • Movie Goof (incorrectly regarded as a mistake): The Three Blind Mice are turned into horses to pull the coach after the wedding reception, yet they are seen moments later dancing on the organ keys. But other than the seamless continuation of the song there is nothing to suggest that the party scene immediately follows the happy couple's departure (there has been time to clear the tables for dancing) so perhaps the mice have discharged their coach-pulling duties and returned to the party for a boogie. While it's true that the sequence was added almost as an afterthought, and the final shot is of the coach being pulled by the mice/horses, we see no continuity error (the final shot is artistically "right" as a closer - that shot and the party need not necessarily be interpreted as being contemporaneous).
  • During a voiceover session, Cody Cameron suggested that Cameron Diaz marry him "... so you can become Cameron Cameron".
