Quotes

Fiona: [seizes a crown and puts it on] All this hocus pocus alters nothing! This marriage is binding and that makes me king. See? See? As for YOU, my wife, I'll have you locked back in that tower for the rest of your days!
Lord Farquaad: No! Actually, you won't!
[whistles. Farquaad does not notice the low growling of the dragon outside]
Fiona: What are you doing, you insolent beast? I'll see you drawn and quartered! I am king! I'll have order!
[the dragon breaks through the window and breathes fire at Farquaad, roasting him]

A Nice Adaptation
25 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

It's nice when the producers of these musical gems see fit to do a nicely cinematic rendition of such lays. After watching "Phantom" at the Royal Albert Hall and then this one as a presentation on Netflix, I'm hoping that more will be saved for always. This is not the world's greatest musical, but it is full of life, wonderful characters, and a nice edge to it. It has two or three very good songs and lots of topical material. The two leads in particular capture the Disney original and are able to poke fun at themselves. If there is a downside, it does go on a bit long and the fairy tale characters aren't used quite as much as they could be. I remember seeing Prince Farquhar on the Tony Awards and was amazed at his dexterity, playing the entire part on his knees. I would imagine that most of the theater goers already know the plot but the magic still gets us from the get go.
