`Sex,' `Shrek' `Toy Story' Aim for Summer Laughs

LOS ANGELES, KOMPAS.com – Studio executives don't care about your money. They just want you to laugh and love. But if you happen to turn your money over to them at the same time, all the better.

Hollywood's summer is crammed with comedy and romance, old friends such as Shrek, the "Toy Story" gang and the "Sex and the City" pals mixing with the latest from Adam Sandler, Will Ferrell and Steve Carell.

Sarah Jessica Parker jokes that "Sex and the City 2" (releasing May 27) is like a Hope-and-Crosby road movie. It takes Parker's Carrie Bradshaw and the rest of her buddies (Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon) to Abu Dhabi, where their stylish Manhattan ways clash with strict Middle East traditions.

Despite the exotic setting, Carrie and friends are the same old foursome, trying to make sense of their relationships and have a good time while they're at it.

"It just is an opportunity for the characters to be two years older, slightly wiser, maybe more curious about things that they didn't really think of before," Parker said. "The dynamic hasn't changed that much. It's just that they're two years older in the sort of natural way humans mature. Or not."

"Toy Story 3" (June 18) and "Shrek Forever After" (May 21) are fresh chapters to two of the biggest animated franchises ever.

The movies reunite their all-star voice casts, Tom Hanks and Tim Allen as Woody the cowboy and Buzz Lightyear in "Toy Story 3," Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz, Eddie Murphy and Antonio Banderas as Shrek, Fiona, Donkey and Puss in Boots in "Shrek Forever After."

Billed as the franchise finale, the fourth "Shrek" movie spins an "It's a Wonderful Life" nightmare in which the ogre was never born, never met his friends and never married the love of his life.

"What I love is with Shrek and Fiona, it's their love story all over again. You get to watch these two characters fall in love all over again," Diaz said. "That's what was so beautiful and captivating in the first film. These two, and how they come to know they are for one another, and true love. You hope it does exist."

The playthings of "Toy Story 3" face their own nightmare — the prospect of winding up in storage in the attic or worse, discarded — now that their kid has grown up.
