Movie Reviews

Great except for one word
Jim Jr | Buffalo, NY United States | 10/14/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is truly a great version of this timless tale and Robin Williams is, as usual extremely funny. BUT he does use one word in discribing the princess that make this otherwise great production questionable for children. At one point he calls the princess a "b----" (rhymes with witch). I know that children hear this word all the time, but it is a jolt to hear it in a children's story and might make some young ones think it is OK to use that word."
Undoubtably one of the best Faerie Tale Theatre videos.

"This episode of The Tale of the Frog Prince, starring the hilarious Robin Williams and wonderful Teri Garr, is not only a very well told classic children's tale, but a comedy. It has plenty of bits an adult would find entertaining, none being underhand or crude, while still amusing to a younger audience. I grew up watching this series; I loved it then, and I still love it now ... A very good movie to see, and a deal if you can buy it anywhere!"
What a wonderful series

"This one funny show based upon a children's book
robin williams is funny as frog & teri garr is excellent as the spoiled princess. i watch this when i was kid & was glad to see it released on dvd, but i was little disapointed in the sound not being very good , i mean it's better than i expect to be for the price paid same with picture could've been better. i'm willing to overlook those things right now & get the series.
in the future i'd like a better transfer in picture & sound & to have behind the scenes, deleted scenes maybe fox will come to their senses and release an excellent edition of this classic series.
but for now i'm glad i can get a clear decent copy of this series so on that note i'd recommend you buy the entire series

a thanks to starmaker for releasing this wonderful series
you have outdone yourselves.

oh to parents the frog prince is PG in my mind because of two cuss words.

happy buying"
A true classic of the series

"THE TALE OF THE FROG PRINCE is among the best episodes of the entire FAERIE TALE THEATRE series. With a sharply comedic script by Eric Idle and capable leads in Robin Williams and Teri Garr, it is a wild and wacky adaptation of the classic fairytale.

A spoilt bratty Princess (Teri Garr) loses her beloved golden ball down a very deep well. Her only option of retrieving it is to accept the friendship of a 'repulsive' frog (Robin Williams). In exchange for a meal at the palace and a nights' sleep on her silken pillow, the frog retrieves the precious ball, but will the Princess uphold her part of the bargain?...

Williams and Garr are excellent in the leads with fine support from Rene Auberjonois, Michael Richards, Candy Clark, Roberta Maxwell and Nancy Lenehan."
