What a relief! No swearing, no kids with bleak attitudes, no unconcerned and self-absorbed parents - just a nice movie with Julie Andrews and an ugly duckling who does the much-expected swan metamorphosis. The only flaw I can find is that the director and/or screenwriter tried to pack too much into it, leaving some points unexplored. Choice moment: Hector Elizondo's character telling Queen Clarice that she "has worn black too long". And then, they dance.
