Wonderful script, makes you look for the real "monster" of the tale
8 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An excellent, excellent modern retelling of a classic Fairy Tale, and the only one in this series to truly explore the possibilities of combining the fairy tale world with the real one. While I found "Rapunzel" fairly cute, "Cinderella" fairly stupid, and "The Empress's New Clothes" a bit on the annoyingly "anvilistic" side with its pro-stay-at-home-mum message, I completely loved "Billy Goat". It had far and away the most intelligent and thoughtful script, taking a fantastical story and making it into a story that actually had interesting things to say about the trap of selfish ambition and the tragedy in the failings of humanity. As in a good folk story, the protagonists of "Billy Goat" are not necessarily heroic all of the time, the story doesn't end the way we might expect, and there's a good moral at the end.
