The 3-D animated family film, spun off from DreamWorks' 'Shrek' franchise, will hope to stay frisky next weekend and beyond to capitalise on largely positive reviews and audience reaction.

The top 20 movies at U.S. and Canadian theaters Friday through Sunday, followed by distribution studio, gross, number of theater locations, average receipts per location, total gross and number of weeks in release, as compiled Monday by Hollywood.com are:
