I have to be honest: I loved the first Shrek, but I wasn’t expecting a whole lot from this sequel. I was mostly going because I love to do things as a family, and I can’t pass up a chance go take the kids out of suburbia and into the real world.
So I was just hoping that the movie didn’t annoy me . . . and I ended up loving it. I give it 4.5 stars on my 5 star scale. (It loses half a star because it uses too many musical montages . . . but the story is hilarious once it takes off, and there were so many brilliant “throw away” jokes, I lost count.) There’s nothing better than sitting between two kids who are convulsing with laughter.
While we were there, I saw posters for the Bukowski movie . . . wow. I can’t wait to see that, man! Life of Brian is also playing there . . . so I may end up cashing in
some most of those member points pretty damn soon.
