Storyline

Two centuries after Snow White and Cinderella had their adventures, the Nine Kingdoms ready themselves for the coronation of Prince Wendel, Snow White's grandson, to the throne of the Fourth Kingdom. But an evil once-queen has freed herself from prison, and turns the prince into a golden retriever. Wendel, by means of a magic mirror, escapes into a hitherto-unknown Tenth Kingdom (modern day New York City) and meets Virginia and her father Tony. Pursued by trolls, cops, and a wolf in man's form, the three blunder back into the Nine Kingdoms and begin their adventures to restore Wendel to his human form and throne, and find the magic mirror that will take Tony and Virginia back home, all the while unknowing that Virginia already has a connection to the Nine Kingdoms that may prove deadly before we reach Happily Ever After.

Wonderful for all ages
17 June 2004 | by (The Hague, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

'The 10th Kingdom' is something for all ages. It combines every known fairytale, especially stories from the Grimm Brothers, with other fantasy stories, including Tolkien's 'The Lord of the Rings'. The story is about a girl named Virginia (Kimberly Williams) who enters a fantasy world through a magic mirror. Together with her father Tony (John Larroquette), Wolf (Scott Cohen), who looks like a man but has a tale and animal instincts, and a prince turned into a dog (Daniel Lapaine) they have to save the kingdom from the evil queen (Dianne Wiest). The entire journey they are followed by Huntsman (Rutger Hauer) who is ordered to kill the heroes.

The story is predictable in a way, but original with some nice touches. We have appearances of Snow White, Cinderella and Red Riding Hood for example. There is even a musical number that involves 'We Will Rock You'. As a complete story it is never boring and that is quite impressive for something over 400 minutes long. Most of the funny moments are with Wolf. He is played by Scott Cohen, an actor who I only knew from 'Gilmore Girls'. He does a very nice job with his character. I could say more about the production but that is not really needed. It is entertaining for kids and adults, that's it. To spot all the references to fantasy stories is a nice extra.
