In the middle of her family's move to the suburbs, a sullen 10-year-old girl wanders into a world ruled by gods, witches, and monsters; where humans are changed into animals; and a bathhouse for these creatures.
As the Ponyville spring parade draws near, Wysteria's elaborate plans for the floral festivities are threatened by the awakening of a 1,000-year-old dragon and the coming crowning of a new princess. With her gardens in bloom and her friends all preparing for the upcoming spring parade, Wysteria is devastated when she inadvertently awakens Spike the dragon from his millennium-long slumber. Legend has it that when a dragon is awakened, a new princess is to be crowned -- but who could it be? As the inhabitants of Ponyville eagerly await the announcement of the new crowned head, they are about to learn important lessons in both what it takes to be a princess, and what it means to be a true friend.

Never before has such a touching, heartwarming film succeeded so well as both a captivating family film and an epic adventure. It finds its way into the hearts of people from all walks of life and fills their soul with happiness and joy. The dialogue is spot on and surprisingly edgy for such a film - as though the writers of The Shield began writing for talking ponies. Yet it fits perfectly. You can almost imagine such words coming from the mouths of real ponies.
The cinematography was excellent. Scenic landscapes and a deep focus allow the viewer to take in the breadth and beauty of the setting and drives us closer into the Ponies' world.
The graphic sex scene was also masterfully executed, with the camera moving over our copulating couple with smooth grace and majesty as their bodies ripple and throb before us. Don't feel dirty if this scene arouses you, you are feeling exactly what the director, in what will be his most memorable credit, wants us to feel. Not since Spielberg has such a person been able to inspire such a swell of emotion in his audience members through the manipulation of two dimensional imagery.
