I'm really surprised to see that it beat Prince of Persia. I thought being a Jerry Bruckheimer film it would have dominated.

Agreed...

Especially surprised to see Sex 2, ahead of Prince, considering Sex 2 is a rated R movie, that segmented to one type of audience, and Prince is more typical summer action flick, that's like PG rated, so open to everyone almost.

Women tend to dominate and drag their men to see movies like SaTC2. It's been around for some time with the series.. so it doesn't really surprise me that it did better than Prince of Persia. I want to see both regardless.

As for as Shrek, I was disappointed. It wasn't amusing like it was in the first two. O well. Can't win them all.

True enough, Sex has been around, and has a built in audience, i am a little more surprised with Prince of Persia, but I guess no one really knows what that is about, and is based on a video game, can't recall the last video game movie, doing big box office numbers.
