Adults and older kids will enjoy this.
3 August 2004 | by pac8See all my reviews

A fun film. Yes, it's long. Yes, it does seem a bit redundant at times, but the modern twists and dialogue and, if you are paying close attention, a bit of Monty Python and various other more mature film lines tucked in for fun, not to mention a certain chorus from a Metallica song, Sandman.

Howie Mandell did a great job as the Sandman but the character seemed a bit off with it's stereotypical "gay lisp" and at the same time, ogling the Wood Fairy - who resembles a certain young lady from Tomb Raiders with her Fairy wands strapped to her thighs and her short shorts. Delta Burke was fun as the Wicked Stepmother. You truly wanted to see her get her just desserts in the end, but she doesn't. And even that was a nice twist on the tale. Lynn Redgrave always adds to a role. She is superb as the fiendish female version of Hannibal Letcher.

This is aimed at an older audience, not little children. The humor and the references are going to go over the heads of the younger set.
