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)

Continuity mistake: At the start of the film, Shrek is painting his "Ogre Beware" sign, you will notice that quite a bit of the top left corner of the board is missing. When he hangs the board on the post it is the opposite corner that is gone. He did not paint on both sides. (00:02:35)

Trivia: The scene where Fiona impressed Shrek with her loud burp was added to the film courtesy of Cameron Diaz. Diaz gave such a loud belch after drinking some Coke during recording that it gave the filmmakers the idea for the gag.
