Corrected entry: When Lord Farquad is trying to get info from the gingerbread man, he crushes his broken legs to crumbs. Yet, at the end of the film, he as a leg.

Correction: People keep submitting this over and over again, and I can't work out why, as it's not a particularly tricky one. At the start he's lying with both legs off - Farquaad dances them both past him at 0:16:00, then a few seconds later crumbles one and throws the other one back down. We see the gingerbread man at the end of the film with his intact leg attached with strips of icing (at 1:18:20). Makes perfect sense.

Corrected entry: When Shrek climbs onto the dragon to go the the castle, he had to climb up a chain and you can see the donkey walking around down below. In the next shot the donkey is on the dragon's back without ever climbing up there.

Correction: Donkey gets picked up by the dragon, and placed on her back.

Corrected entry: Princess Fiona is cooking the eggs on the rock that is over the fire but as she goes to Shrek to give him the eggs she picks up the rock with her bare hands. Wouldn't her hands get all burnt?

Correction: She uses a big green leaf as an oven mitt type of thing. When she puts down the rock with the eggs on it watch her hand, the leaf is still in it.

Continuity mistake: Sometimes Shrek's front door opens outwards, at other times inwards, yet it can't be "two-way" because whenever it closes, it slams against the frame. (00:10:55 - 00:13:45)
