This latest “real person” movie takes you on a wonderful trip full of twists, turns and iconic characters, such as Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk and Rapunzel. Yes, all of these timeless classics and characters find their fates intertwined with a humble baker and his wife, whose longing to have a child sends them on a quest to reverse a witch’s curse. We all just loved, loved, loved this movie…such a great story, wonderful acting, fantastic cast. What more could you ask for in a family movie?
As soon as the movie came into our house, the kids began to BEG to open it up! “PLEASE CAN WE WATCH IT NOOOOOOWWWWWWW” Honestly, I felt the same exact way!
I love when Disney takes their classic tales and puts a slight spin on the story. This movie was extra fun because it was a melting pot of all my favorites. I mean – WOW, Cinderella and Rapunzel on one DVD? I will take it.
