I LOVE Puss in Boots!!! I will hunt him down and keep him! He exists outside of the film, right? But his eyes...!! Can't wait til Shrek 3 & 4! Most films just get boring when there are 3 or 4 of them, but Shrek won't! The humour in Shrek is classy! Especially the rip offs of other films in Shrek 2.
Personally, I liked the music, the lotr rip offs and Eddie Murphy. Did you know? I've noticed three lotr rip offs: the making of the ring, Shrek jumping on stallion Donkey Legolas style (you know, that really cool jump at the warg battle) and the Giant Pastry attack (it was a bit like the siege of Gondor, just backward). A terrific movie, nonetheless.
The world was green, the mountains young The world is grey, the mountains old
Can't say i noticed the second 2 LotR rip-offs. But the film had me laughing so hard i could have wet myself. I LOVE the soundtrack! My boyfriend Dave bought it for me about 3days after we saw Shrek 2 (we saw it the mornign of the UK premier, which was in the evening). *starts singing the credits version of I Need A Hero)
