Shrek rules the b/o for now
The latest computer animated movie "Shrek" is, predictably, the No.1 film in America, and predictably, that should only last until next week when "Pearl Harbor" destroys every film in sight for Memorial Day weekend. Also apperantly, the film was going to make only $30-35 million, but strong reviews pushed it up to $42 million. Oh, and the word on our "favorite" fanfic icon for this movie compares him in some reviews favorably to Robin Williams famous voice only turn in "Aladdin" so that should be an ego boost for him if he gets out of the peril Caps wrote for him.

Like Eddie Murphy NEEDS a bigger ego!
Possible FanFic in-joke: when embarrassed or made to look stupid, Axel's face does the classic "jackass morph"--strongly resembling the donkey in "Shrek".
The good b.o. on this picture may do will in offsetting the (what I predict will be) abyssmal numbers on Dr. Doolittle 2.
