Early indications are that Shrek is doing very, very well at the box office this weekend. It will probably bring in more than twice as much as the second place film, The Mummy Returns. The early, early projections have the film pegged at about $30+ million for the three-day weekend. For people who think that I never have anything nice to say, please go see this film. The animation is very well done, the story works as both a parody of classic fairy tales and in its own right, and Mike Meyers voice work is the best Ive ever seen, er, heard in an animated film with the possible exception of Robin Williams (gee, even Eddie Murphy gets some laughs). If anyone is concerned, the jabs at Disney are not mean-spirited and are very funny for anyone whos ever been forced to walk through an empty switch-back queue before. Besides, you have to love any movie that makes a joke about in-ride photos.
