Dreamworks is quite the prolific film company. With 34 films (to date, as of April, 2017), they are a true powerhouse in the movie business. Not only is Dreamworks adept at making films that will enthrall children of all ages, but some of the films are just “edgy” enough to appeal to adults, too. There is quite a bit of thinly-veiled adult humor in “Shrek 2!” I will have to say this one is my favorite of all of these films on the list, but admittedly I haven’t seen very many of the 34 films on this list. Without further ado, the list….keep in mind box office numbers listed are always subject to change, please visit the web site boxofficemojo.com for the most up-to-date box office information.
