-1 Caution advised for older children, including teenagers, and sensitive adults.
SHREK 2, the first sequel to the 2001 animated Oscar-winning hit, has Shrek trying to keep his marriage to Fiona intact, despite an evil plot by Fiona’s underhanded Fairy Godmother. SHREK 2 contains a few inappropriate jokes and a politically correct tone, but it also has a light Christian worldview and many biblical, moral messages showing that magical spells and fairy tale enchantments cannot bring real happiness and extolling forgiveness, repentance, self-sacrifice, thinking of others before yourself, selfless love, honor, valor, and the courage to do the right thing.

DOG DAYS is very funny, and the basic conflict is resolved in a positive way, but there’s some light scatological content and not all the bad behavior is rebuked; so, caution for younger children is warranted.
