Geoffrey introduces the party to Cinderella. When the girl is talking to Will you can here "Someday My Prince Will Come" in the background. This is an error because that song is from Snow White not Cinderella. See more »


Hilary: Will, for your information, the skeleton over there is Elizabeth Hurley and the unicorn beside her is Kevin Bacon. And they both wish you'd stop *hitting* on them.

The Fresh Prince Of Bel- Air

Someday Your Prince Will Be In Effect: Part 2

The origin of Will Smith's fame and too many mentions from The Graham Norton Show got me to binge watch this series which I think has a potential to be a typical one-time-watch sitcom. The creators made the relations pretty much clear from the first frame now all one seek and wait for is their character development through this journey with hopefully no dips on content or humor. The relation between Will Smith and Tatyana Ali seems interesting (something to look forward especially when she grows up) and is definitely supposed to bring the laughs whilst with James Avery there is a soft spot hidden in there.

As often happens, the first season is good and demands attention from the viewers wanting them more of the family drama which writers better deliver if not all of it but some of it (its diplomatic to keep big guns for the future) and would be wise of them if they keep an open-end on some tracks to pick up swiftly on season 2.

There are way too many cameos and appearances for the material or humor to fit in but luckily as soon as second act kicks in the energy lightens up and the laugh comes in especially the last rhythmic tale that Will Smith tells to the 'trick or treat' kids.
