Shrek 2

Other mistake: This is a UK/US vocal talent variation. In the UK version the voice of the Ugly Stepsister is that of UK TV/Radio Presenter Jonathan Ross yet the vocal talents are credited as CNN talk show host Larry King. Also, the voice of the Red Carpet Reporter is none other than UK Pop Idol Extra presenter Kate Thornton, yet again, the voice is credited as Hollywood reporter Joan Rivers, whom the physical appearance of the character is based on. (00:28:20 - 01:03:50)

Other mistake: In the scene where Shrek wakes up to find himself human in the barn, Puss is holding the potion bottle, reading its disclaimer. What is wrong, is the shadows on the floor (casting behind him) don't match the shadows on his body (casting to the right side). (00:51:50)

Other mistake: When the royal messenger informs Shrek and Fiona about the royal ball the scroll he is reading from is not open enough for him to be able to say what is written.

Audio problem: When the Fairy Godmother sings "Holding Out for a Hero" she tells the pianist to 'put it in C minor,' yet the pianist immediately begins to play in G minor, and the rest of the song is sung in that key. (01:08:15)

Trivia: In the scene where Fiona starts to cry, many bubbles can be seen to fall from the sky. In one of them is Fairy Godmother. This is a reference to The Good Witch in The Wizard of Oz.

Question: When Shrek and the gang decide to visit the Muffin Man, Shrek says, "We're going to need flour, lots and lots of flour." I remember a similar line (but not referring to flour) from another movie. What movie was that from and what was the line?
