Wow, after seeing the mediocre reviews, I'm really surprised at how well this one did. Not too shabby at all. I'm still wanting to check it out.

Man, Dreamworks have only made one really worthwhile movie and that was Shrek 1 and 2. Shrek 3 was lacking. And Shrek 4 is milking it. Pixar always make new original, innovative movies.

I have always enjoyed Dreamworks movies & i agree with you on the Shrek thing, Shrek movie was great & it should have ended with the first 2, but no they messed it up by released 2 more unneeded sequels.

Not suprising to me. With how much money went into advertising this movie, and the only competition it has got an R rating. It was like a sure victory, even with medicore reviews.

He good.
And he is showing up more and more in films. Sometimes his roles are too similar though.

I will not disagree this, it get repetitive, but i still enjoy them, his latest movie 'The Other Guys' was really funny, i really hope they do a sequel to it.
