Decent Film for an Excellent Story
13 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this version of the Princess and the Pea, a young girl shows up at the castle gates in the middle of a storm, claiming to be a princess and asking for shelter. The next morning the prince of said castle rides out to find a princess to take to wife. Searching far and wide, each princess he finds falls short of his ideal one way or another until he finds just what he was looking for in the last place he expected.

While I love the story of the princess and the pea, I found the movie to be surreal and almost stilted. The acting, while not atrocious, seemed to be lacking. I most definitely would not recommend this film to anyone who is not a fan of the story. But for those who are it makes for a pleasant hour and a half. Just don't pay too much to see it.
