While Shrek is not suitable for young children (a PG-13 rating would have been more appropriate due to crude humor and language) there are still lessons to be learned.
Shrek has to come to accept that he is an ogre and being an ogre is not what he thinks.

Shrek promises to rescue the beautiful Princess Fiona from a castle tower guarded by a fire-breathing dragon (Farquaad selfishly wants to marry Fiona solely for her royal standing so that he can become king).

The first Shrek installment trailed off with Princess Fiona and Shrek falling in love after the once-hermit-like ogre rescues the beautiful princess from a castle tower guarded by a fire-breathing dragon.
Viewing Fiona and Shrek for the first time in the princess’ homeland, not only are the parents shocked, but a stunned bird flies into a wall and apparently dies.
As was the case with the first Shrek, rude humor is a problem—from belches and hairballs to mild innuendo and flatulence.

 Shrek - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Shrek lives a quiet and lonely life in his small swamp, until his peace is disturbed by the arrival of a host of "fairytale creatures" (like the Gingerbread man and Pinnochio), who were exiled from the nearby dominion of Duloc by its ruler, the vain (and exceedingly short) Lord Farquaad.
Shrek and Fiona initially dislike each other--Fiona is angered that her rescuer is an ogre and not the expected Prince Charming; however on the journey back they begin to like one another.
Shrek's fight with the knights in Duloc is a parody of a typical fight portrayed by World Wrestling Entertainment, in particular, the wrestling style of Hulk Hogan.

 Shrek (character) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The eponymous hero, who is an ogre, lives in a swamp and was, until befriending Donkey, a relative recluse and grumpy character.
Shrek's life was turned upside down, when, after meeting Donkey, his home (a wooden shack constructed from a large hollowed-out tree trunk) and land (a rather muddy swamp) were invaded by many fairy-tale creatures who were relocated there by Lord Farquaad.
In order to reclaim his land, Shrek agrees to embark upon a mission to rescue Princess Fiona, Farquaad's bride-to-be, from a dragon.

 Salon.com Arts & Entertainment | "Shrek"
There's clearly an intelligent, intuitive sensibility behind Shrek: In a pivotal scene, when Shrek and his true love are separated, their feelings of despair and isolation are played out against John Cale's version of Leonard Cohen's crestfallen anthem "Hallelujah." It's both surprisingly offbeat and touching.
The techno-sophistication of "Shrek" cuts right through the picture's goofy, pleasingly homespun demeanor like a laser, resulting in something that smells a lot like disingenuousness; we're left feeling self-righteously hip and knowing, and worse yet, we've almost been convinced that's a suitable substitute for enchantment.
According to the press materials, "Shrek" avails itself of a DreamWorks "proprietary" facial animation system (first used in "Antz") that uses a layering process to build the image of a character's face, starting with the skull and then gradually adding computer re-creations of muscles and skin.

However much Shrek might expand the visual palette of computer animation, much more important is the wit and compassion the CG animators at PDI/DreamWorks bring to this fractured fairy tale.
