A mean lord exiles fairytale creatures to the swamp of a grumpy ogre, who must go on a quest and rescue a princess for the lord in order to get his land back.
After Shrek manages to rescue Fiona from the castle, Donkey asks Fiona if she thinks Shrek is her true love. Turns out he is, and their kiss at the end of the film breaks her curse.
Once upon a time, there was a lovely princess. But she had an enchantment upon her of a fearful sort, which could only be broken by love's first kiss. She was locked away in a castle guarded by a terrible fire-breathing dragon. Many brave knights ...
Farquaad does not seem to know where the fairy tale creatures are when he tortures Gingerbread Man for information but he mutters 'indeed' when he hears Shrek telling him he dumped the fairy tale creatures on his property which could imply Farquaad did know where the fairy tale creatures were.
SPOILER: The Ss in the DreamWorks logo transform into ogre form. This hints at Fiona's nightly transformation into an ogre.
Mike Myers originally recorded Shrek's lines without a Scottish accent, and only later convinced the producers to let him go back and re-recorded the character with the accent. Examples of his original, unaccented dialogue can be heard during the technical goofs feature on the DVD.
