Trivia

Billy Magnussen, who plays Rapunzel's Prince, played the sexy and self-indulgent role of Spike in the Tony Award-winning play "Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike." In the play, his character dresses up as Disney's Prince Charming for a costume party. Before the play ended its run on Broadway, Magnussen was cast as Rapunzel's Prince for Into the Woods (2014), which is produced by Disney. Magnussen had to leave the show in August to fly to London to begin rehearsals for the film. See more »

I want that time of my life BACK!
25 December 2014 | by (Hell) – See all my reviews

This was the biggest waste of time and honestly a massive disappointment. Seriously, that's all I can say. I have never written a movie review before, however walking out of this movie I have never felt so inclined to express my utter disappointment. Filling 10 lines with how awful this movie was, is simply a painful recollection starting 5 minutes in. The sinning by most actors was not pleasant, not to mention the actual lyrics became annoying. I do enjoy a good musical, which has thoughtful and creative sense behind the lyrics. This, simply did not. Anticipating the next song mixed through dialog with failed attempts of humor was less than enjoyable. I can honestly say that I cringed when the movie did not end at the wedding of Cinderella and the prince. It was so close to "happily ever..." but was then cut short and we had to endure an additional 50+ minutes of nonsense. This is not a movie that I would recommend to anyone. I would score it a zero if I could.
