Sassy Humor
3 January 2007 | by Kristen KallahanSee all my reviews

Things are going awry in Fairy Tale land. Thanks to the Evil Stepmother (wonderful Sigourney Weaver), all the Villains of the fairy tales are going to have their way.

The humor was hip (but not too hip). I laughed aloud a few times. I think the adults will enjoy it as much as the kids. (The daddies will especially enjoy the Stepmother's Jessica Rabbit-like physique.) Beautiful 3-D animation helps it swing along. Although I found the Stepmother's bosoms as bit TOO 3-D. Distracting.

Patrick Warburton is perfectly cast as the voice of the big handsome (and dumb) prince. Married couple Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze, Jr. do service as the leads, and Wallace Shawn, Andy Dick and George Carlin are on board too. (George only has a few lines, none of them funny, so don't get your hopes up if you're a fan.)

It's no Shrek -- but it's 85 colorful minutes that go down easily.
