whiz contemporary comic look at this favorite fairy story
26 January 2002 | by (Montreal, Canada) – See all my reviews

A whiz rendition of this favorite story. Look out to see your childish memories of a picturesque fairy story come bang up to date with our adult life experiences. The story criss-crosses between medieval Baghdad and 20th century London, with numerous cross-cultural gags lighting the way. I watched this in the company of people from both parts of the world, and all of us found the film a riot, once the slow beginning picked up pace. We all recommend this highly for anyone.
