Quotes

Taminella: Don't look so worried, little frogy. There's still a way you can break the spell. I mean, you might just happen to meet a princess. And she might befriend you and take you to live in the palace, and someday she just might kiss you. Then you'll be a prince again.
[laughs]
Taminella: Doesn't seem so likely, does it?

wonderful film
26 August 2002 | by kristinak100See all my reviews

This was the first video I ever owned as a child, and it truly is as wonderful and entertaining to watch today as it was back then. I have introduced my nieces and nephews to it, as well as their friends. I also have had some grown friends watch it, and they can enjoy it too, because Jim Henson's talent lies in the fact that his films are enjoyable for the whole family. The songs contained in The Frog Prince are adorable, but beware - the kids will be singing them for hours!
