Editorial Reviews

William (Kip Pardue), a lost soul, arrives in Ithaca to hang
out with his college buddy, Louis and his pregnant wife,
Sophie. The three attend The Princess Ball, which is held
at the castle where William meets the beautiful and magical
Princess Ithaca (Nora Zehetner). After managing to have a
dance with her, William uses a cheesy pick-up line that is
misinterpreted by the Princess. She becomes convinced
that William is The Searcher she s been looking for in
order to search for the one who will heal the sick and
frightened mythical creatures of the world.

This movie was actually pretty cute. My girls, 7, 6 and 4, all enjoyed this movie. We rented it and now I think we will need to add it to our library. I must admit that I liked it, too. It's a different storyline. If you have young girls that are interested in fairytales, this would be a great buy.

There is nothing scary about the characters. Love story is cute. Great family movie just for fun, possibly for boys as well.

Sat down to what I thought was going to be fun girl night with my 8 year old daughter. First 20 minutes have two guys drinking beer, then they decide to go to a Princess Ball even after talking about how "gay" it would be. Then they talk about someone being a lesbian. We were about to turn it off but gave it a few more minutes and this horrible creature shows up at the end of the driveway that belongs in a horror movie. My 8 year old is almost crying telling me to shut it off. Really? Why would this be marketed to kids?

If you are looking for a princess story with some mild horror elements then this might interest you. I personally didn't find it that scary and thought most of the story was rather sweet. I however would not show this movie to kids as there is a very scary monster. The basic story is that a princess lives in a castle where she heals hurt mythological creatures. There is a mermaid, a miniature dragon, a fairy who has a baby and what looks like a werewolf.

No one is normally allowed in the castle so the whole situation is steeped in mystery. The problem is that the princess is about to turn 25 at which time she will lose her powers. A new princess has to be found immediately. So the story has some suspense elements in it.

It is probably no spoiler to tell you that the prince ends up with the princess. However I was disappointed that there was no wedding at the end. It seemed the prince just went to live in the castle without marrying the princess. I think this sends the wrong message to kids. So as an adult I could enjoy most of the movie but the ending was a little disappointing.

The highlight of the movie is when the fairy baby flies. That was so cute.

I had no idea what this movie was about when I sat down to watch, but as it began to unfold I thought it had potential. For me it just never quite acheived it. The attempt to blend the here-and-now with happily-ever-after just didn't fit this time like I felt it had in Disney's "Enchanted."

I'm not sure who the target audience is supposed to be. Dialogue seemed more adult in places than necessary in a kid's movie. Some of the scary fairy tale creatures might be too much for some little ones (though most kids seem pretty jaded these days), but the princess theme is obviously geared to little girls. The immature attitude of Will's friend, Louis, toward fatherhood may have been trying to play to men, though I can't see many of them wanting to sit through this movie. In an attempt to please everyone, it pleased no one at my house.

The princess is very sweet and pretty, her "knight in shining armor" is a nice looking average guy. There are some entertaining moments--especially the fairy baby, but overall, for me, it fell short of being a charming modern-day fairy tale.
