'Shrek' better than 'Sex' with $43M at box office

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Movie audiences are showing more appetite for Shrek than for sex over Memorial Day weekend.

The animated sequel "Shrek Forever After" remained the No. 1 movie for a second weekend with $43.3 million from Friday to Sunday. The film raised its domestic total to $133.1 million.

That easily topped "Sex and the City 2," which was No. 2 with a $32.1 million debut that came in far below the $56.8 million opening weekend of its predecessor two years ago. Along with a $14.2 million haul in its first day Thursday, "Sex and the City 2" has totaled $46.3 million.

Debuting at No. 3 with $30.2 million was the action tale "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time."
