This is a great family film. It's a joy to watch, with jokes coming thick and fast, that Kids and adults will enjoy.
There is never a dull moment, from the cartoon first 10 minutes to the wise cracking live action. It's the live action part of the movie when the story really comes alive. The film is fresh and very funny with brilliant characters. But the real star is Amy Adams as the would- be princess, she really does leave you enchanted with her innocent performance. Patick Dempsy is good as her love interest, if at times comes across a little dull. Susan Sarandon is great as the evil queen, but is slightly under used. Timathy Spall is also very good entertainment as the misguided servant.The film out-shines most of the fantasy films of the year, and it's the none stop barrage of in-jokes and sly winks at the early Disney animated films that get the most laughs. Also the effects are very good. The film is pure family entertainment, This is what Shrek 3 and The Golden Compass should have been, but were everything but.
I urge you to take the kids to see this film, as they will love it, and the adults should enjoy just as much.
Classic family entertainment!
