Editorial Reviews

Once upon a time will n'ever be the same again. Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel, and Jack from the Beanstalk are all about to live happily ever after when the balance between good and evil gets thrown out of whack. It's up to Cinderella - aka Ella (Sarah Michelle Gellar) - to save the day by taking on her power-hungry stepmother, Frieda (Sigourney Weaver). But this time, Ella will have to do it without her Prince Charming (Patrick Warburton) as she joins forces with an unlikely army of dwarves, faries, and the Wizard's bumbling assistants, Mambo (Andy Dick) and Munk (Wallace Shawn). Your favorite fairy tales are turned upside down in this funny, fast-paced adventure that teaches the lesson that - no matter who you are - you have the power to affect how your story turns out!

5.0 out of 5 stars this movie is great! October 5, 2007
Format:DVD
I don't know why nobody else likes it, because I love it! This is one of my favorite movies, in fact I just gave my mom the idea to buy it for me since she needed a birthday present idea (and I hate making her spend a lot of money... so she bought this and tada great cheap present).
The characters are funny, the storyline could maybe move a bit faster but the little jokes are what made me laugh so much. Some of the jokes are very subtle, but when you notice them its great.

This movie amuses me a lot and I'm soon to be 22 years old. It's a cute, funny movie that (while it may not be up to the more mature sarcastic 'standards' of Shrek) is definitely worth watching over and over.

3.0 out of 5 stars More for Kids Then Adults May 4, 2007
Format:DVD
Our story takes place in Fairytale Land, a kingdom populated by every fairytale character you've ever met. The balance between good and evil is maintained by a wizard (George Carlin) who makes sure that every story follows the book.

The time has come for Cinderella (Sarah Michelle Gellar) to have her fairytale ending. The Prince (named Humperdink. A nod to Princess Bride? Either way, he's voiced by Patrick Warburton) is hosting a ball on his twenty-first birthday. Cinderella is set to go and fall in love, just as the story dictates.

This doesn't sit well with Rick (Freddie Prinze, Jr.). He's a servant in the castle and has fallen for the beautiful Cinderella. Fighting a bad case of prince envy, he wonders why he never gets a happy ending.

While all this is happening, the wizard decides to go on vacation and he turns things over to his two assistants, Munk and Mambo (Wallace Shawn and Andy Dick). Mambo wants to add a bit of variety to the stories while the wizard is away, and the two start fighting.

Overhearing their fight is Frieda (Sigourney Weaver). She's Cinderella's evil step mother. She seizes the golden opportunity to take over the kingdom and tip the scales toward evil. Now it's up to Cinderella and a very reluctant Rick to return happy endings to Fairytale Land.

I'm always up for a good fractured fairytale, a genre that has become popular since the success of Shrek. I was looking forward to this one, but it failed to live up to expectations.

The biggest problem with the movie is the lack of development. Everything felt rushed, like it knew what it had to do and wanted to get it over with as quickly as possible.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kiss Those Fariy Tale Endings Goodbye January 24, 2007
What I found interesting about "Happily N'Ever After" was its willingness to turn classic fairy tales upside down. What if the princess doesn't wind up with the handsome prince? What if Sleeping Beauty remains asleep after Prince Charming kisses her? What if Rupunzel's golden hair caused more problems than it actually solves? We rarely see this kind of intentional manipulation when it comes to fairy tales, and that made this film a lot more enjoyable. It helps that it has a prominent sense of humor, making it delightfully light and airy. I was reminded of Disney's "The Emperor's New Groove" as I was watching "Happily N'Ever After"; both are films that depended on their heavy-handed jokiness in order to be entertaining.

Fortunately, this method worked in both cases. While this film isn't exactly meaningful or relevant, it's still tells a humorous, good-hearted story. The jokes begin almost as soon as the film begins; an evil woman waves a magic staff, shooting lightening into the air. Just as the lightening forms the letters of the film's title, the reel stops, exposing the celluloid's square holes. That's when the story's narrator tells a joke, of which I only remember an announcement to move a vehicle with Narnia license plates. After that, the back story is established: in Fairy Tale Land, The Wizard (George Carlin) is in charge of maintaining the balance between good and evil in all fairy tales. Basically, he makes sure that every story ends the way it's supposed to end, with the princesses getting saved by the princes and everyone living happily ever after.

The Wizard goes on vacation, leaving his assistants--Munk (Wallace Shawn) and Mambo (Andy Dick)--in charge of his control room located in the top tower of The Prince's castle.

5.0 out of 5 stars A perfect fractured tale... December 26, 2007
By Mali
Format:DVD
I absolutely loved this movie. It is a twist on Cinderella in the land of all things fairy tale. It is animated and it's voice cast stars Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr. An excellent and adorable re-telling, there are parts that could have been a little more explored or expanded. This is not in the same vein of crude humor as Shrek movies, don't expect it to be, but the two sidekick wizards and the dumber than possible prince provide some sarcastic humor. A realistic twist on a princess movie.

2.0 out of 5 stars uh, no...just didn't work February 2, 2009
By LARRY
Format:DVD
*Happily N'ever After* tried to model itself after *Shrek*, straying away from the traditional fairy tales. How *Happily* was different was that Cinderella's evil stepmother took control of the tales' ending by letting the bad guys/villians win. However, *Happily* was just...well...boring!

The Wizard, who ensures balance among the tales, is off to a vacation. In his absence, he places the responsibility among his 2 goofy assistants. In the middle of their "playful" bickering, Cinderella's evil stepmother takes advantage of the situation by seizing the wand that controls balance.

In control, the stepmother bands together all the villians to take control of the kingdom and the "good" characters. Only Cinderella and the king's dishwasher escape. Together, they decide how to get the kingdom back. Along the way, they round up help from the 2 goofy assistants and the air-headed Prince Charming.

Overall, the story just didn't work (poor punch lines, little character development, etc.) Within 10 minutes, I was already looking at the time and wondering how much longer I'd have to suffer through this movie.
