Great news: Sex and The City 2 was stomped all over by Shrek Forever After, leaving it with a broken heel collapsed in the gutter somewhere, as Shrek does a victory dance all over it’s Marchesa dress – in other words, Shrek slaughtered SATC2 in the box office this weekend. Despite all the crazy hype and weird SATC parties which encouraged women to get disastrously drunk before going to see the film (in the hopes they won’t remember what actually happens I’m imagining), the two and a half hour long menopausal fashion parade didn’t go down as well as they had hoped.

In fact, SATC2 took in just $32.1 million, while the first SATC film made $56.8 million on it’s opening weekend. Shrek Forever After took the number one spot over the weekend, pulling in $43.3 million – proving once again that people would prefer to laugh at a talking donkey then listen to a woman who resembles a horse waffle on about her marital problems.
