Quotes

Princess Alecia: Just a minute, you haven't passed *my* test. To see if you're a real prince or not.
[he sputters]
Prince Richard: That is absurd, of course I'm the prince. Ask anybody.
Princess Alecia: Wait a minute. This is the test. You have to kiss me.
Prince Richard: That's it?
Princess Alecia: Would you wait a minute? You have to kiss me. And if you're a real prince, then I should hear trumpets playing and bells ringing, and I should see stars exploding.
Prince Richard: Oh, Lord. I... I suppose I could give it a whirl.

Delightful
28 September 1999 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

I finally obtained a copy of this extremely witty, wonderfully performed installment of Shelley Duvall's "Faerie Tale Theatre" series. It's great for kids and adults should enjoy it as well. Liza looks dynamite in the period costumes.
