Overheard at Table 2: Sherlock Holmes - A Game of Shadows

"I don't know," the husband says, "I just don't really care for sequels in general, I guess."

"Says the incurable Star Wars fan," says the wife.

"That's different. That's Star Wars. Those aren't movies, those are a philosophy - a way of life. 'Game of Shadows' just didn't have that some 'oomph' that the first movie did, and you know how I hate when they take one joke from the first and continue it over and over again in the next one."

"Yes, yes, I remember! You went on for weeks about 'Shrek' - but let's not get into that now."

"Well, heck," says the husband, "It's the same thing - you know, poisoning the dog was funny in the first one, but dull in the second one. But I did like the 'living camouflage' bits, that was cool - where he looked like the chair."

"Well, you can criticize it all you want to," says the wife, "But that movie has two things that make it perfect for me - Jude Law and Robert Downey Jr."

"Please!" says the husband.

"Super yummy!" says the wife, as she delightfully sips her latté.
