Movie Reviews

One of the best of the early episodes
Byron Kolln | the corner where Broadway meets Hollywood | 10/26/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Shelley Duvall, creator and producer of the FAERIE TALE THEATRE series, takes centre stage in the lead role of RAPUNZEL, one of the best entries in the series.

Gena Rowlands is deliciously evil as the jealous old witch who takes the young girl from her parents and imprisons her in an impossibly tall tower in the middle of an enchanted forest.

Jeff Bridges is great as the dashing Prince who charms Rapunzel and plans to elope with her. Their scenes together are very beautiful, and their chemistry is evident for all to see.

Shelley Duvall and Jeff Bridges also portray Rapunzel's parents at the beginning of the tale, which is a nice touch.

Filled with dazzling costumes and an intelligent script, RAPUNZEL is worth a look, as are all the other great FAERIE TALE THEATRE's.

"Probably my favourite episode from Faerie Tale Theatre is absolutely sweet! Shelley Duvall makes a magnificent and angelic Rapunzel, and Jeff Bridges is witty and charming as the Prince. Gena Rowlands is scary and stylish as the wicked witch. With a touching music score,a dedicated and romantic script and an intelligent narrator Roddy MacDowwell, you're bound to have a classic...and do!"
WOW--all around!

"I love this addition to the series. Shelley Duvall is enchanting, in front of or behind the scenes. I am a huge fan of her work and have loved this series since I was a small boy.

This episode is stupendous! Gena Rowlands is phenominal as the witch. Wounded and human, this witch is more encompassing than most. Jeff Bridges is appealing to both children and adults in his effortless manipulation of charm. Shelley, well, she is as magnetic and stalwart as ever. The colors and gorgeously painted sets can transport back to a time when we all could believe in faerie tales.

There is a thread of magic which is rampant throughout these tales. The amazing casts, who basically GAVE their time and talents to make these projects come to life, never disappoint. I was a hardcore fan at 5 years old and I am still.
