Corrected entry: Shrek tells Fiona how short Lord Farquaad is, even though in the film he only saw him when he was high up on the balcony. Although his height may seem like something well known throughout the land, Shrek never even knew about Farquaad before going to his castle. He even refers to him as "this Farquaad guy."
Corrected entry: When the dragon shows its mouth (like when it roars), it has no lipstick. When she falls in love with donkey, her lipstick is suddenly there.
Corrected entry: Shrek and Donkey could not have made jokes about Lord Farquaad's height since they never saw him anywhere before except on a balcony. Shrek has never heard of him before, so cannot have known. (The producers acknowledge this oversight in the DVD commentary.)tylerasktaylorsteckleralexdenny
Corrected entry: After the dragon has flown through the window in the wedding scene, Donkey is on the dragon's head. When the dragon smashes the last window just after the kiss, Donkey has disappeared, but he is back on the dragon's head when he says "I was hoping this would be a happy ending!"
Corrected entry: The mice, particularly for BLIND mice, get up the table much too quickly. You see their shadow from the floor and then a second later they're all on top of the tables having a conversation.
Corrected entry: The door on Shrek's outhouse seems to have a problem. In the very beginning of the movie when Shrek comes out of the outhouse, the door stays wide open, like it's just a normal hinged door. But later when he comes out while talking to donkey, the door quickly snaps shut like it has one of those door closing mechanisms on it.
Corrected entry: It's just impossible for chandelier to slip onto dragoness' neck - her side triple "horns" (or whatever they are) would just stop it.
Corrected entry: When Farquad is getting information from Gingy, he plays with Gingy's feet. In one shot angled from behind Gingy, Farquad throws the feet at Gingy. In the next shot, a wide shot showing the table that Gingy is on as well as Farquad, there are no feet. There are no feet for the rest of the scene - they've disappeared.
Corrected entry: When Shrek and Donkey arrive at Dulloc and are about to see Farquaad for the first time, Shrek says something about Donkey being in the right way for a smacked bottom, that is a tribute to Austin Powers who is also played by Mike Myers. If any of you have seen the music video "Beautiful Stranger" by Madonna, Austin Powers says nearly at the end of it that Madonna is going the right way for a smacked bottom.
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.
Corrected entry: When Shrek and Donkey are approaching Duloc, in its parking lot, a man in a Lord Farquad costume sees Shrek and is scared by him. The man runs through the waiting line barriers one at a time, but if you watch closely and count the number of times he turns a corner, he runs through many more turns than there are. Even if you don't count, you can see this from the overhead shots.
Corrected entry: After Donkey faints, Shrek picks him up. You can then see Fiona's and Shrek's footprints in the ground as they walk off. As Shrek steps over one of Fiona's footprints, his footprint appears on the ground, but Fiona's footprint, some of which should have still been there, has disappeared completely.
Corrected entry: When the character of Pinocchio is handed in to Farquad's soldiers, he is yelling and struggling. As he is being carried over to the wagon to be put with the other characters, he freezes like stone. I guess the animators just couldn't be bothered. His nose has also suddenly shrunk back to its normal size.
Corrected entry: When Shrek and Donkey first arrive at Duloc there is a mistake when the Duloc worker is running through the ropes. The worker starts to run through the ropes and the shot is from above. The camera changes to eye level and the worker completes the ropes. When the camera cuts back to the above view the worker is still running in the ropes.
Corrected entry: After Shrek and the donkey agree to save the princess, they walk out of a sunflower field and into a veggie field. When they walk in, Shrek has nothing in his hand, then he has 3 ears of corn and a onion. The only problem is he hasn't walked through the corn yet and the onions are way in front of them. They start walking through the onions about 3-5 cuts after Shrek says that ogres have layers.
Corrected entry: Princess Fiona is sat alone at one end of a large dining table. Bright sunlight is shining through windows beyond the opposite end of the table, the shadow of the chair at that end of the table is cast back towards Fiona. Shadows of items on the table are cast in the opposite direction.
Corrected entry: When Lord Farquad is interrogating the Gingerbread Man he crumbles one of his legs up and throws the other on the table. The leg should have landed behind the Gingerbread Man's head somewhere, but in the next cut we can see the back of his head and there is no leg. Where did it go?
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.
Corrected entry: In the love scene between donkey and dragon, the dragon lights the candles on the chandelier. When it falls on to the dragon's neck, they are not lit or smoking.
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.
