Movie Review


While the fantasy genre is not my typical fare, I thoroughly enjoyed this romantic-comedy-fantasy flick. Claire Danes is going to be immortalized--as is the film in my opinion. Along the lines of the Princess Bride, this movie is smart, funny, and brilliantly conceived.

A tale of discovering true love--especially when it's right in front of you--and the journey it takes to know that true love demands nothing, no evidence, no proof, no question, but rather, a simple wish that the love be received and perhaps returned.

There are few films of this genre that have pulled it off; this is one of them. The cameo roles of DeNiro and O'Toole are priceless; as too the performance of Michelle Pfeiffer, returning to play a witch, and she still has it, after all these years.

I highly recommend this film--Go see it!
