I am all for sweet, romantic, family themed fantasy movies. I am a Disney fan. And to me, this movie is a waste of time. It is not heavy enough on the fantasy aspect, one could have done much more to explain how all this came about.
The movie is filmed with a lighting that often makes it impossible to see what is going on. Why do people think that mysterious scenes are to be filmed on sets that are darker than my Granny's coal cellar?
Jenny Garner is one of my favorite actresses since ALIAS and I even forgave her the Electra disaster. In this movie though, she is overacting like a theater novice and the whiny little child is annoying.
Just one big disappointment.
