    Sometimes they make a kids animation movie that has content for adults. In the Shrek franchise's case, it's really the reverse. Kids will like the fun animation and fart jokes, but I've seen children's eyes glaze at the films' relationship concerns. There's a fair amount of casual violence in the first film as well, the Gingerbread Man's torture, for example, birds exploding, and frogs and snakes turned into dead-eyed balloons. I don't know that this is necessarily upsetting, but it is more adult content. But while I often question its tone, the movie is still an enjoyable topsy-turvy fairy tale, in which the hero and his love are monsters, and the wider world of Fables (so to speak) is readily available for joke-making. The action is strong, the characters filled with personality, the relationships dynamic, the soundtrack pleasant (if a bit over-played). 7 years ago
