    Okay, obviously this is not some profound or intellectually stimulating movie, but I think everyone needs a break from thought provoking movies and just see a movie to have fun.

    Obviously this movie was not as good as the origianal (but what is? <room for debate obviously ;) >) but this movie was very funny and still made me feel good when I left.

    Did anyone else see this movie?

    My daughter has been begging to see this. My response was that when she catches up on her chores and homework we can think about it!

    I love that! I remember being told by my mom that she would "think about it..."

    I love the first movie, and by love I mean I have many lines memorized and my husband now hates the movie because of how often I like to watch it. I find myself viewing it alone quite often. :D

    The second Shrek is definitely worth watching in the theater!

    I believe I'm the only one who didn't really like the first Shrek all that much. It definitely had some funny moments, but Donkey irritated me and I'm starting to really not like Mike Meyers anymore.

    But, I've heard from people who felt the same way that the second one was a lot better. I'll probably wait for video on it.

    Well, for you sake Dan, there is less of Donkey in the second if that makes you feel any better. ;)

    That's what I do with movies I like! I think we'll see it this weekend.

    Fun movie, lots of humor on different levels. Puss in Boots is a great chartacter.

    Shrek 2 did over $100 million this weekend, huh?
    I heard that.
    I still have to see the first one, heard it's phenomenal.

    My kids are dying to see this. But what I want to know is it a cartoon appropriate for children? Are there crude jokes, bad language? I'm so afraid to take them to movies anymore because of that stuff.
