Shrek made $484,409,218 worldwide.
Shrek 2 made $919,838,758 worldwide.

Billy has a good point - Shrek does parody a lot of stuff. That's why it has the adult appeal. The kids have a good old-fashioned fairy story, and the adults have a skit that the kids probably will miss. Everyone's happy. Ratatouille scores this way, too, but at $617,245,654 worldwide doesn't beat Shrek 2. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ratatouille_(film)|
