Corrected entry: In the scene where Fiona is trying to pull the arrow out of Shrek, she sends Donkey to get some flowers. When he comes back, they converse about why Donkey had to leave in the first place. While they are talking Fiona pulls out the arrow and when Donkey faints, leaves fly up into the air. In the next shot when Shrek picks Donkey up, you can see that there were no leaves on the ground whatsoever.

Correction: There were no leaves on the ground when Donkey was picked up because the ones that had previously been on the ground blew away when he fainted.

Corrected entry: When Donkey and Shrek and camping and looking at the stars, there is one shot of Fiona in her cave- and her skin is human color. But later on we find out that Fiona changes into an ogre every time the sun goes down. So why isn't her skin green, like an ogre's?

Correction: Fiona is so deeply in the shadows and the glow of the fire is what makes her appear to still be human even in the night, you cannot tell the exact color of her skin.

Corrected entry: When the chandelier falls over the dragon's head it slips on very easily, almost as though the dragon's body is greased. However, for that reason it should be easy enough to get off, so why didn't the dragon take it off to follow in pursuit of her beloved donkey? I mean, it was obvious that she was really in love with him.

Correction: This is because of the dragon's ears. The dragon's ears point back, not forward. Meaning they can be pushed down (by the chandelier) so something could slip over them and then be stuck.

And what of the snout?

Continuity mistake: In the scene immediately following Fiona's thrashing of Robin Hood and his Merry Men, Shrek is holding Donkey and they are staring at Fiona in disbelief. When Shrek drops Donkey and turns to follow Fiona, you can see his entire backside and it's unpierced. In the next scene, Fiona discovers an arrow in his rump that wasn't there before. (00:53:18)

Trivia: Shrek took more than four years to produce. One of the reasons it took so long was that Chris Farley had been cast as the voice of Shrek, but he died in late 1997 from a drug overdose in the middle of production. His lines had to be re-recorded by Mike Myers.
