I would like to thank.....
20 January 2007 | by MorbidGirlieSee all my reviews

I would like to thank all of the bad reviews. They made the movie a way better experience. I didn't think it was going to be like Shrek to begin with so, that part didn't effect me. All in all, the movie was pretty decent, a 6.5 / 10..... there were parts I laughed, parts i liked and those little Dwarfs are creepy! haha....

I agree with those of you who liked the film, and I also agree with those of you who didn't. Hollywood lacks imagination these days with spoofs, re-makes and slight plot changes. But, that's the media's fault... so, for a movie that had to compete with all the stuff out there, it was good.

And Freida, by the way, looked like the Step-Mother from the original Cinderella, but with more attractive hair and a little more leg. Their 'busts' are the same size, just Frieda has a cleavage line.....Don't agree? What Cinderella again -smirk- Thanks for readin'!
