Shrek - 2001
Age-appropriateness: Many uses of subtle adult humor. Includes a “witch’s curse”. Cartoonish violence.
Overview: After his swamp is filled with magical creatures, Shrek agrees to rescue Princess Fiona for a villainous lord in order to get his land back. Shrek, with a surprising amount of subtle adult humor, is pretty one-dimensional in its plot/theme: Your family will get to discuss that true beauty is on this inside and not to judge a book by its cover.
Themes: judgement, outcasts, beauty, loneliness, friendship, love, fairy tales, parody, magic, adventure, forgiveness
