Quotes

Princess Henrietta: What are you so worried about? I'm the one who's going to be crowned princess.
Dulcey: Well maybe you won't. Maybe Zora will get back.
Princess Henrietta: She's not coming back. She'll never find him - never.
Dulcey: [angry] Well I hope she does. Because you're cruel, Henrietta. You don't deserve it. I much rather be friends with Zora than you!
[Dulcey leaves]
Princess Henrietta: Good!
[Dulcey shuts the door behind her]
Princess Henrietta: [shouts angrily] When I'm princess, I'll remember that!

Charming and Heart Warming.
26 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a film I was introduced to by a friend who gave it to me as a Christmas present back in 1988. I have worn out three copies of the film since then sharing it with friends and family. This is one of the films I watch when I am feeling blue. And in spite of its flaws (weak dialog at times and almost saccharine lyrics) it is charming and warms the heart. For me the highlight of the film is John Paragon (probably best known as Jambi the Genie) in the role of the title character. His physicality brings the Frog Prince to life. His mixture of high energy, melancholy and sense of humor showcases this under-rated performer's talent. Aileen Quinn's performance as one of the princesses, is another example of her ability to shine in front of the camera. Every time she cries, I cry. And Helen Hunt as the mean sister is classic. You really want to hate her, but at the same time are feeling sorry that she doesn't understand what it means to "be a princess". Over all a very enjoyable film for children and adults alike.
