Alisan Porter was first considered for the role of young Elizabeth after both director Ate De Jong and producer Paul Webster had seen her in both Parenthood (1989) and Stella (1990) (which co-incidentally also starred Marsha Mason). But she was unavailable as she was busy working on Curly Sue (1991). De Jong's and Webster's next choice was Jodie Sweetin. But the producers of Full House (1987) refused to release her from her contract and both Working Title executive Tim Bevan and co-writers/executive producers Carlos Davis and Anthony Fingleton wanted a more unknown child actress for the part. Christina Ricci, Kirsten Dunst, Ariana Richards, and Anna Chlumsky also auditioned for the role. See more »

And the prince took the beautiful young girl in his arms and said, will you marry me? Yes, she whispered, I will be your princess.
Did they live happily ever after?
Of course, Elizabeth.

What a pile of shit!

I would call this a dark comedy since it had a lot of the elements of the genre: sad moments with odd humor attached to it, and the strange, fantasy character of Fred. At first I thought "this is a very weird film!", and it is, but it grows on you and pretty soon you are having fun watching Fred's antics. I think this film definitely has the potential of having a large audience, so get out the word!
