Movie Reviews

Tough critic | Upstate New York | 03/08/2009
(3 out of 5 stars)

"As a mother of 4, with 3 girls under 10, I thought this would be a cute movie to watch together. I previewed it with my ten year old and was disappointed that the words "gay" "lesbian" and "virginal princess" were used by the "30 something" father - to - be in the movie, when trying to set up his friend with the princess. The words were used quickly and I'm sure younger children wouldn't pick up those words, but unfortunately my 10 year old did. I was disappointed that abc family included them in their movie. They weren't necessary and wouldn't have changed the storyline at all. I also didn't see a rating on this movie but I would certainly slap on a PG maybe even PG-13 label, for the few inappropriate words used and a few scary parts with a 5 headed "Loch Ness" type creature. Again, parents you preview it first and decide for yourself. Aside from those disappointments, the movie was okay."
Cute idea, poor execution

"Admittedly, I'm not a member of the target audience for this movie. Nonetheless, I did see it recently and had a few thoughts. The premise behind the movie - that a guy meets a princess who turns out to be a magical guardian of fairy-tale animals - is cute and has potential. However, it ultimately falls short. It seemed too quick (and indeed runs less than an hour and a half) and never took full advantage of the fairy-tale creatures at its disposal. There were no magical moments with unicorns (although there was one with a fairy baby). The movie could have been extended by half an hour or so in order to play up the fairy-tale aspect. Right now, it's too similar to any other ABC love story.

Another concern is the appropriateness for kids. Some reviewers have noted one of the characters uses words like gay, lesbian, and virginal. While those certainly aren't appropriate for a kids movie, I was more disturbed by the portrayal of marriage. The main character's best friend seems to constantly complain about his marriage and the responsibility of having a baby. Fortunately, at the end of the movie he seems to have forgotten about his problems, but it was still unnecessary and doesn't portray marriage well."
Great for the girls!

"My 11 & 9 year old daughters loved this movie! We stumbled upon it one night on TV now we must add it to our DVD collection. The girls loved the dresses. The story is very cute."
