God what a miserable town

Went to Aberdiiiin yesterday to see Shrek2. It was fantastic - I was worried that as a sequel it would have a "yawn" factor. Not at all. I lost count at about 20 different film references - including "flashdance" for fricks sake!

Example: Classic joke - horse walks into a bar - barman says "Why the long face". A classic one-liner.

So Shrek, Donkey and the Cat are lined up at the bar - and the barmaid/man (you've gotta see it) says "Why the long face"...

I was on the floor, fighting for breath. This wasnt just a good joke, nor was it in isolation - it was relentless. Course, afterwards, the wife pointed out that we seemed to be the only folks in the cinema who got *that* joke. Or many others, it must be said. So - great film, miserable town.

its a Must See, repeatedly in order to mine all the jokes...
