My Thoughts: I started watching this video with my young daughter. Within the first five minutes I realized that this was not a video for her. She handled the goofy spooky things just fine. I did not want her picking up some of the crude phrases and scenes from the Shrek segments. So I stopped the movie and decided to watch it after she went to bed. So movie night resumed after she was tucked into bed and fast asleep. The video includes tales by the Shrek characters and tales from Monsters vs. Aliens. I must say I was not as impressed with the Shrek tales they kind of bored me. I did enjoy the Mutant Pumpkins tale from the Monsters Vs. Aliens. I think this video is defiantly for older children. I may have to pass it on to some older kids and get their opinions on the video.
