Revealing mistake: When Shrek and Donkey are sitting by the fire and looking at the stars, when Donkey asks Shrek about "our swamp" and Shrek says "We?" When Shrek blinks, his right eyeball is slicing through his upper lid. (00:46:30)

Revealing mistake: When Donkey first meets Shrek, when Shrek confronts the knights, not all the shadows fall the same way. Shrek's shadow is cast forward onto the leader knight, whereas the knights' shadows are off to their left.

Revealing mistake: When Donkey and Shrek are walking through the garden area, they pass some sheaves of wheat (presumably.) If you look carefully, you will notice that the wheat stalks were cut, not pulled up, but what were they cut from? There is only bare earth. (00:27:45)

Sol Parker

Continuity mistake: At the end of the film, the three blind mice are turned into the horses for the onion carriage but a second later they are dancing on the piano. (01:21:10 - 01:22:00)

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.

Question: I was wondering if anyone could tell me what the words are to the song in the Duloc information booth? I have been trying to figure them out for ages, but the words aren't clear enough, and I can't check subtitles because I have the tape, not the DVD.

Answer: Welcome to Duloc, such a perfect town. Here we have some rules, let us lay them down. Don't make waves, stay in line and we'll get along fine. Duloc is a perfect place. Please keep off of the grass, Shine your shoes, wipe your ... face. Duloc is, Duloc is, Duloc is a per-fect plaaaaaaace.
