A young woman and her true love are separated early on and spend the rest of the movie trying to re-unite. There are some funny lines but the rest is pure cheese. This is a fairy tale for grown-ups but it didn't appeal to me.
Yeah it was good but I'd say not great. Maybe I'd been ruined by the Shrek series lol. It was fun. I'm sure the littlies would love it. I did enjoy Mandy Patinkin as the spaniard. Didn't recognise him at first.
This is the first movie I remember seeing at the cinema. Funny with a heart of gold. Love it!
Part-Fairy Tale, part-parody of Fairy Tale, all fun. Near perfect film.
But I'm bias, as it's my favourite file and I've owned it in a number of formats.
This is a joy! A fantasy on one level appreciated by children at face level, but with surprising nuances that keep everyone happy, withy good moral lessons and a surprising turn to make us keep watching.
Excellent Movie! Unfortunately my copy jammed on scene 12 so I had to go hire one from local video store to see the end, but well worth it!
This is a fabulous movie - perfect for the children and enjoyable for adults too. It has great action, very funny cameos, some classic dialogue, an evil prince, dashing hero and gorgeous heroine - and a happily ever after ending. Couldn't ask for more from a family movie.
Good romp for the family.
Sorry, I can't write a review because we didn't watch it. I got it confused with The Princess Diaries which, it seems, is a different kettle of fish altogether.
This is still a family favourite and my guys are all teenagers now!
A clever fairytale, that's a lot 'tongue in cheek' so expect it be predictable.
Moves along well and yes I put it in the classic box.
An enjoyable movie for young and old, however not a movie that I would consider a 'classic'.
i grew up watching this movie. It's sweet, funny, with some bad guys and action thrown in for good measure. Something the whole family can enjoy :)
Meh.... It wasn't all it was talked up to be. It was such a predictable movie but at least Wesley was good looking enough to stare at...
A sweet and funny little love story.
A wonderful classic from the 'Robin Hood Men in Tights' team. Some well known actors who have gone on to bigger things. I loved this movie and would recommend it to young (not too young though !!) and old alike. If you enjoy a good laugh without having to think too much about it, this is a MUST SEE MOVIE.
one of my favorites, highly recommended. Classic comedy. Andre the Giant.
A great movie that has got everything you could possibly want in it. A classic that will last forever.
A real old time favourite for the whole family. Lots of fun and great acting from everyone.
I really enjoyed this and it's a good adaptapation of a great book. A film you can definitely watch with both children and adults.
Saw it at the movies as a child & the love is eternal
Good wholesome entertainment.
Nice little movie... The kids will love it... Especialy all the little "princesses"
Still a classic all these years on!!! Almost inconceivable...
its a very silly film and very babyish
It wasn't as good as I thought it would be. I was rather disappointed by it. A good movie for little children, though.
Don't see what so good about it.
There is always a movie that you see as a child that sticks in your mind. And when you grow to adulthood, you want to hunt this movie down. This movie is such a movie. Family entertainment. Your kids will love it and so will you.
What a great way of getting over the flu. Children's Stories never die and the kids really love them ( as do the grandparents). A great way to spend the afternoon with the grandchildren. A good story and and very entertaining.
I think this film is seriously overrated - there are a few chuckles (Billy Crystal is particularly good) but overall is a bit ho-hum.
Not as funny as it thinks it is.
I confess I didn't adore it, but thought it very cute. Nice film. Peter Falk is actually the best thing in it, but then, isn't he always?
A movie with more memorable quotes than any other....
"He didn't fall?? INCONCEIVABLE!
....you keep saying that word...I do not think it means what you think it means!"
"I do not mean to pry - but do you by chance happen to have six fingers on your right hand...?
...do you always begin conversations this way?"
A movie I can watch again and again - the young ones played it 3 times
One of my favourite movies. For young and old, guys or girls.
My cousins & I used to watch this every summer, was our favourite movie.
My daughter and I found this movie to be very enjoyable my daughter quite liked it.
Because this movie has so many sub-plots it appeals to everyone. While it sounds like a classic fairytale it doesn' develop that way. We all enjoyed it, even my boys who do not like that "kissing stuff"
The kids watched it a couple of times and enjoyed it
Magnificant movie - I can't believe I waited this long to see it. My 11 year old son loved it too.
Fantastic movie - very sarcastic and comical - loved it!
