Hapily N'Ever After
Source: Catholic News Service
Computer-animated adventure set in a storybook realm where a wicked stepmother (voiced by Sigourney Weaver) swipes a wizard's magic staff, which enables her to rewrite classic fairy tales so they have unhappy endings, leaving it up to Cinderella (Sarah Michelle Gellar) -- here called "Ella" -- to set things right, while finding herself torn between her vainglorious Prince Charming (Patrick Warburton) and his beleaguered but brave manservant (Freddie Prinze Jr.). Though produced by John H. Williams, who also produced the "Shrek" movies, director Paul J. Bolger's parody falls well short of those films' sharp wit, superior animation and charm, but its lively tone, colorful look and cute premise nevertheless prove modestly entertaining as family fare. Some mildly crude humor and expressions. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-I -- general patronage. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG -- parental guidance suggested. Some material may not be suitable for children.
