one of my favorite "friendship" movies
28 March 2015 | by flybysailSee all my reviews

My daughter was 3 and I was 32 when we first saw this version of the frog prince. It is not blockbuster material. Flaws, yes it has many. (some of them even make me cringe, they are over quickly)But its humor, courage, sweetness and songs make it great. The young princess has the charisma of Annie of "Little Orphan Annie's Broadway musical. My daughter is now almost 30, we love to sing the songs from this movie. ("the too tall frog" (almost as good as the scarecrow's "if I only has a brain" in the wizard of OZ) & "have you forgotten me?")We would dearly love to watch it again. I rank this with Steven Spielbreg's movie "always."
