Movie Reviews

The best of the best!
Byron Kolln | the corner where Broadway meets Hollywood | 10/22/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"THE DANCING PRINCESSES surely ranks as one of the finer entries in the FAERIE TALE THEATRE series. It features the beautiful Lesley Ann Warren as well as a sweeping and delightful musical score.

The story is about the daughters of a widowed King (Roy Dotrice) who somehow wear out their dance-slippers every night despite being locked in their room until morning. The secret is not discovered until a crafty soldier (Peter Weller) follows them and finds that they go dancing in a fairy-kingdom under the ground.

This must surely be my favourite, because its everything a fairytale should be; romantic, funny, sad and incredibly-entertaining. Lesley Ann Warren looks luminous and has a remarkable chemistry with Peter Weller.

The story also features Sachi Parker (the beautiful and talented daughter of Shirley MacLaine) as the comical youngest princess; as well as Zelda Rubinstein (Tangina from the POLTERGEIST trilogy).

Most FAERIE TALE THEATRE fans single out this episode as their all-time favourite (with TALE OF THE FROG PRINCE coming a close second). This was actually the final episode ever made of FTT."
In touch with my childhood

"I was so stoked to find this, it was a favorite movie of mine as a child and was wonderful to watch it again. Recommended for little girls that love princesses and fairy stories."
Faerie Tale Theatre: The Dancing Princesses
Clob Lane | Toronto, Canada | 02/11/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Often said to be the best episode from Faerie Tale Theatre, this is an excellent version of the Twelve Dancing Princesses. Lesley Ann Warren is truly great as the oldest princess with the sweet, strong personality. Peter Weller does a wonderful job as the soldier and Roy Dotrice is superb as the kind but grouchy old father. It was nice to see Poltergeist's little psychic Zelda Rubinstein in another role, even though it is quite small. Great sets, costumes, script, actors and music score."
Enchanting Movie

"The dancing princesses is one of the best stories out of the faerie tale theatre collection. It was my favorite movie when I was a girl. It's such a shame though that they no longer have these available for purchase though. I would certainly buy the series."
