A delightful adaptation of the classic tale, 23 June 2008
Author: sgtking from United States

Everyone loves a good fairy tale, and you can't go wrong with the classics like 'Sleeping Beauty' and Cinderella.' In the 1980s the Cannon Movie Group started a new line of movies in their new Cannon Movie Tale division, each based on a fairy tale. Though maybe not the greatest of adaptations of the stories, they are still quiet memorable in their own right including this 1987 adaptation of the Brothers Grimm 'Snow White.' This was one of my favorites as a kid and now seeing it years later I can see why.

Pros: Really good performances and singing from the cast. Some of the songs are quite catchy. Breathtaking scenery. A beautiful instrumental score. Nicely done sets and costumes. Moves at a good pace. Excellent make-up work for Diana Riggs many looks.

Cons: Though nice looking, the sets and some of the costumes look more suited for the stage than a feature film. Some cheesy effects. Maybe too simplistic a script.

Final thoughts: Though not perfect, this version of the popular story is still a very entertaining and sweet little movie. It's proof that you don't need a large budget and a cast of nothing but big stars to make a worthwhile movie. And lucky for those who enjoyed this one, Cannon did several more of these.

My rating: 4/5
