At one point during the chess game at the beginning of the film, the Queen says "loose lips sink ships" to Brighton. When the aid asks which ship is to be sunk, the Queen says that is just an expression. Actually, the phrase was coined in Britain during World War II regarding the secrecy of route of Atlantic convoys. Since Germany had spies everywhere, an indiscretion could, quite literally, sink a ship. See more »

It would warm my ancient heart if you could accept this modest gift on your wedding day.

That's very kind of you.
Just one bite for good fortune. To the fairest of them all.
Age before beauty. It's important to know when you've been beaten, yes?
So it was Snow White's story after all.

I took my 11 yr old niece to see this movie and we both loved it. Good clean family fun. Nice to walk out of a movie singing and dancing for a change...... Julia Roberts is hilarious, Nathan Lane even more so and the rest of the cast endearing. Seems if a movie doesn't have violence or sex, not many like it. That is so sad.... life should be fun sometimes and this movie made us feel uplifted and happy.
Thanks Julia and Nathan..... I am not familiar with the actress that played Snow White or the Prince but they were both adorable and funny.
This movie was entertaining for any age, full of action, surprises and humor..... go see it, don't let the nay sayers keep you away.
