Movie Reviews

What a great gift item
Compusurge | New York City | 12/31/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have already stated my grand opinion about this series in the review I posted for Faerie Tale Theatre: The Complete Collection. However, as the collection is an expensive item, this single disc installment represents a superb entry to any and all unfamiliar with the series who want to taste it or give as a gift. The thematic approach is brilliant and I high recommend it to everyone."
Excellent, witty adaptations of Grimm tales

"Though Shelley Duvall's Faerie Tale Theatre is available as a complete collection, the thematic DVD sets are also well-done. This particular DVD contains 4 adapted Brothers' Grimm tales:
- Hansel and Gretel which features Ricky Schroeder as Hansel, Bridgette Andersen as Gretel, and Joan Collins as both the wicked stepmother and witch.
- Rapunzel which features Gena Rowlands as the witch, Shelley Duvall as both Rapunzel and Rapunzel's mom, and Jeff Bridges as the prince and er, Rapunzel's dad.
- Rumpelstiltskin features Shelley Duvall as the girl/Queen, and Herve Villachaize "the plane, the plane" as Rumpelstiltskin, and
- Little Red Riding Hood which features Mary Steenburgen as LRRH, and Malcolm McDowell as the wolf.

The stories have a touch of humor in them and are well-acted by a talented ensemble cast. Highly recommended for the young and young at heart!
