Brothers Jake and Will Grimm, renowned collectors of folklore, have made a career out of traveling from village to village pretending to rid them of enchanted creatures. Their bluff is called, however, when they are forced by Napoleon's French government to investigate a haunted forest where girls have been disappearing mysteriously. What they discover leads to a series of adventures involving an actual evil (and immortal) sorceress that mirrors that of mythology and the fables that the Brothers Grimm would eventually become famous for.

The Rating: This movie is rated PG-13 for violence, frightening sequences and brief suggestive material. There is very little nudity, sexual references, and language in this movie. The primary reason it appears to be rated PG-13 is for the subject matter. It involves the disappearance of young girls and some of these sequences, particularly involving the queen could be potentially scary to young children. Additionally, the dialogue is aimed more towards adults and I think it would be difficult for this movie to hold a child's attention.
Overall Opinion: This movie isn't a masterpiece by any means. It's campy, it's at times confusing, and some of the acting is subpar at best. However, I think it's for exactly those reasons that I like this movie so much. It just doesn't take itself seriously, and I personally always enjoy adult fairy tales.
Just remember: 1. The Brothers Grimm's fairy tales are already a bit... grim (I mean, come on, just think of the Cinderella story), 2. it's rated PG-13 for a reason, and 3. nothing's out of the question in this movie.
It was entertaining and drew you in a bit, and if you're as old as I am and remember these stories being read to you in school, it brought back some fond memories.......the special effects were pretty good and added nicely to the telling of the story. Well done.
