As Artie is giving his speech when leaving his school, he says he's "building his city on rock and roll". This is a modified line in reference to and taken from rock band Starship's hit "We Built This City". The actual line in the song goes "We built this city on rock and roll." See more »

During the beginning of the credits, Donkey and Puss dance and sing "Thank You (Falletin Me Be Mice Elf Again)" while they and the ogre triplets interact with the actors' names, which are in the shape of sticks, stitched onto stuffed animals, hung from a mobile, etc. See more »

Everyone thought this was going somewhere... but it wasn't.
I really didn't like this movie. It wasn't funny, the storyline was boring and it lacked the humour the original Shrek movies excelled at. There was no emotion to it, the part which was supposed to be sad just wasn't, and it makes you wonder why they even made a Shrek the 3rd movie in the first place.
The jokes they used were dull, and the story was highly predictable. The storyline of Shrek going to find the next heir to the thrown was silly I thought, it is never even explained why Arthur is an Heir anyway.
This movie is boring and really rushed. They could have done a lot better, it's like they didn't even try at all.
