When Sydney is getting on the bus to leave for college, the US flag is on the bus by the door, but is displayed backwards, with the union (the stars) on the right instead of the left. It stays this way throughout the whole scene. When the US flag is displayed with the union on the right, it symbolizes forward motion. If the bus carried a real flag on a mast instead of just a sticker, the union would be on the right as the bus moved forward because the union side is attached to the mast. See more »

A genuinely good movie
22 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In our day and age, it's very difficult to find a truly funny film that is also fairly sweet and innocent. Having grown up as a fairy tale princess wannabe, I've seen my share of fairy tale spin-offs, and this has by far been the best one. I was almost afraid to watch this movie, seeing as it was PG-13 and that doesn't really mean anything anymore (could be clean, like Sydney White, could be completely raunchy). However, I was pleasantly surprised by its clever writing. Some may complain that it is too stereotypical with the cliques, but I would point out that the gorgeous Prince Charming is also a genuinely decent guy, not just Mr. Popularity as in most films. I mean, let's face it: fairy tales were pretty stereotypical to begin with. Evil queens, handsome princes, princesses in danger or in hiding, or regular girls becoming princesses. But that doesn't make it any less of a good story. Overall, I found it highly entertaining and terrifically charming. Truly heartwarming to a fairy tale fan like myself, and even to my dad, who decided to accompany me to the movie because he had nothing better to do--and believe me, it's not easy to entertain my dad with 'chick flicks'.

Predictable, maybe. But who really wants to see the evil witch win in the end?
