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.
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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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.
