Theme: Self-Acceptance and Identity: Explanation: "Shrek" challenges the notion of traditional beauty standards and societal expectations. The characters, especially Shrek and Fiona, learn to embrace their true selves and find love and acceptance in spite of their unconventional appearances. Theme: Love Transcending Appearance: Explanation: "Shrek" subverts the classic fairy tale trope of the handsome prince rescuing the beautiful princess. Instead, it focuses on the idea that true love is based on a deeper emotional connection and shared experiences rather than superficial looks. Theme: The Importance of Honesty and Authenticity: Explanation: Shrek's straightforward and unpretentious personality contrasts with the deceptive attitudes of other characters. The movie suggests that authenticity and honesty are more valuable than appearances or façades. Theme: Humor and Satire as Vehicles for Social Commentary: Explanation: "Shrek" uses humor and satire to comment on fairy tale conventions, pop culture references, and societal norms. This highlights the film's ability to entertain while simultaneously delivering thought-provoking messages.

A parody is a humorous imitation of a serious work, usually made for entertainment. Parodies often use exaggeration, irony, and other techniques to poke fun at the original work. Parodies are often used to make social or cultural statements.
What's a Parody?
48. Slide
60 seconds
A parody is a comical imitation of another work. It stops at mocking or making fun of one work. For example, Pride and Prejudice With Zombies is a parody of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. A spoof mocks a genre rather than a specific work. For example, the Scary Movies series is a spoof because it mocks the horror genre rather than one specific film. On the other hand, satire uses irony and humor to mock political or religious views. Satire may be more offensive than the lighthearted humor of a parody or spoof.
