Shrek 2
 
Just got back from seeing Shrek 2, funnier than the first. Just one thing though...

When Shrek changes from an ogre to the handsome prince why does he become chancellor of the exchequer Gordon Brown ?

Is Prince Charming based on David Beckham?

Ha! You're right, I thought he looked familiar!
I loved all the little side way jabs at disney throughout the film.

I like the Cat Nip bit on 'Knights', Im sure there is more in that film for adults than Kids.

I like all the shops that have the Gap logos and Starbucks etc, v.funny, and all the refs. to films, Predator, Indiana Jones, Alien, there must have been loads I missed too.

Great Stuff.

It is the type of film you can watch 100 times, and always spot something new in it. Well worth the $6 !

I actually thought it was pretty poor. I loved the first Shrek, but this seemed to be a rushed cash in.
I'm not saying it was bad, just no where near as good as it should have been.

Just looked it up and it was actually Larry King! :eek:

Thought it was great.

I have one problem - at the start it took them days to get to 'Far Away land'. They left Pinocchio and the Gingerbread man and all those types at the swamp. Later in the movie those types are at the swamp watching them on 'Knights' on the 'TV'. Minutes later, they show up to rescue them from the dungeon. How in the heck did they get there so fast...? :confused:

Come to think of it, he DID look like Gordon Brown...:)

Yeah I knew i'd seen him somewhere before.
But then it also took me 30 mins to get that the dad was John Cleese.

Was anyone sitting there thinking "who's the fairy god mother?"
I went through every BBC news and TV presenter...decided after an hour it was Joanna Lumley ...then it came to me it was Jennifer Saunders.
