Did you read what I wrote a few posts back? It is a hoot! I'm quite sure you and Shrek have seen all the action movies referred to, so you should both get a few good laughs.

We enjoyed it immensely, lots of fun and we've seen all the movies referenced. It was quite amazing getting all of them in the same movie.

Liz and Dick on Lifetime. It was bad. I stayed w/ it to see the life shared between the two, & it was difficult watching. On the plus side, the wardrobe/costumes of the era were somewhat on target. Disappointing.

Many references to them. Those guys are all as old as dirt (and they played up to that in the movie), and they were all great. We loved it.
Great review Barbara...this one sounds good!
