My Thoughts:
My daughter, age 6, thought that this movie was great! I liked that it brought together a bunch of different fairy tales with a bit of a modern day twist. The characters all interacted together and their stories intermixed.

She was a fan of the magic and music. She liked the characters and thought the dwarfs were funny. She liked to point out all of the things that she recognized; characters and story lines. I liked that there were important lessons throughout the story. Never underestimate the underdog, be true to your word, and the importance of friendship.

This movie was a nice mix of adventure, love, and humor. With just the right mix of villains, princesses, and goofy guys. It was a hit with my daughter and she has asked to watch it again!

My Thoughts:
My daughter has been so excited to see this new movie. The day it arrived she wanted to watch it right away. And since then we have watched it two more times! That should tell you it was a huge hit with my 6 year old!

I loved that this was a movie our whole family could sit down and enjoy. We are bog Disney fanatics, so this was a fun film that brought back some of our favorite villains. It's definitely geared toward the younger generation, but it didn't stop us from having some toe-tapping fun. I mean, who doesn't want to dance to an even peppier version of "Be Our Guest"?

While I was excited to see some off spring of classic characters... Dopey's son!... my daughter was all about Mal. From her clothes, to her singing, to her romance with Belle's Son, Ben.  We are now on the hunt for a Mal costume for Halloween!

I was impressed with this fun film. It's a great family movie night flick. And one that my daughter is going to be asking for again and again! Time to start buying some dolls and clothes to keep the party going!
