Gingerbread Man!

Many articles are talking about my Gingerbread Man flashback sequence! Some of them are really flattering.
Here are some excerpts:

Sean the movie guy:
" I'm still a huge fan of the Gingerbread Man, and his origin montage makes for my favorite moment in the film."

"... and the moment when the Gingerbread Man watches his life flash before his eyes is one of the funniest scenes of the whole series"

"Except for a few moments here and there, such as Prince Charming's gleefully corny stage productions and a Gingerbread Man flashback montage, much of the original sense of ingenious fun is gone."

Killer Movie:
"The only other moment, about a minute actually, worth seeing is when the Gingerbread Man's life passes all too quickly before his royal icing eyes. "

"Highlights for me where the Gingerbread Man's flashback. This was awesome, intricate, and long enough to make me believe he could have his own spin off. That tiny sequence almost made the film for me."

"A scene stealer in both Shrek movies, the Gingerbread Man does it again with an entire-life-before-his-eyes flashback that packs more funny into one minute than anything from Donkey or Puss in Boots..."

You cand find most of these reviews on Rottentomatoes.

There was a lot of funny sequences in the movie . Congrats on that one Gabriele.
The Pinocchio trying not to lie made me laugh pretty hard too.
Lovely panels throughout your site BTW .

Il film è bellissimo e la scena dell'omino di zenzero è proprio la mia preferita!
Orgogliosissima di sapere che è opera di un italiano :) Complimenti!

Quindi sei tu la persona che devo odiare, visto che la mia ragazza ama quella scena alla follia! ;)
Scherzo, è venuta benissimo e non posso che farti i complimenti! ;)
(Anche per le scene di Kung Fu Panda, le ho adorate)
