A magical Film
16 June 2004 | by (london England) – See all my reviews

My mum got me this film when I was about 2 and I still watch it to this day! It is fantastic so magical and so innocent,Diana Rigg makes a grand entrance as the evil queen and she does not have to put much effort into it! I love all the songs in it especially Diana Rigg's "beautiful hair! shes funny in this film as well as very scary, when I met Rigg earlier this year, I was very scared of her remembering her in this role!

I also love Patterson and Stapleton's performance and their lovely singing. I wish more cannon movie films were made as the same standard as this I really recommend it!!!
