As well as the German, the Italian and the French on the multilingual sign are also wrong. The Italian says "non ci penso" ("I am not thinking") instead of "non ci pensare" ("don't think"), and the French has "gaspillar" for the correct "gaspiller" ("waste, squander"). See more »
His name's Gwin. And I know he looks charming, but you know what they say about books and covers.

Went to watch this film last night, now I'm not a big fan of Brendan Fraser but I enjoyed him in this film, he plays a loving father who just wants to protect his little girl, don't worry I haven't given anything at all away about this film. The acting was very good, the story was very Walt Disney which I love when watching a fantasy film, the cast isn't full of good looking stars but at the end of the day what Fantasy films are? If you love watching your children smile when watching a film then go and see it but also if you're an adult who loves a little bit of romance then go and watch this film, you'll understand why I said that once you have.
