Storyline

In the Fifteenth Century, the Kingdom of Anwyn has been in a war against the Lothian Kingdom for three hundred years. Now the womanizer Prince John of Anwyn will marry the Lothian Princess Gwendolyn to bring peace to the kingdoms. He rides with his clumsy wizard squire Rodney of Tudor and his father King Leo to the Lothian Castle for the wedding. However, on the day of the wedding, Prince John is caught shagging a peasant woman and Lothian King Pius and Queen Isabel curse Prince John and Rodney and they are doomed to "frogging" by the wizard Whackthazar for all eternity. The spell will only be broken if a maiden kisses John and marries him. Five hundred years later, John and Rodney are still frogs. One day, a boy catches and brings them to New York City and they escape to the Central Park. When the actress Margo kisses John in the park, Rodney and he become men again. John seeks out Margo to marry her and end the curse, and they meet the gorgeous Kate that helps them. John knows that ... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Sweet and Charming
29 January 2004 | by paintbrush_2003See all my reviews

We've seen this plot a thousand times, but this take on it is sweet and very entertaining. I was particularly surprised at how well the frogs were computer-generated. They move like people and are fun to watch. The acting is great and the movie moves along at a nice pace. Watch this on a rainy Saturday afternoon with some ice cream. I rented it at a small local video store that doesn't have many movies, so it's probably available, although they did only have one copy.
