Happily N'ever After Reviews

Page 1 of 5

Despite attempts to turn the fairytale genre on its head, the characters are predictable stereotypes.

Happily N'Ever After finally arrives, looking like a cheapo knock-off of DreamWorks' ogre.

Shrek this ain't. A lacklustre effort hampered by limp dialogue and lazy plotting.

The computerised animation is cut-rate; the script keeps piling on clunker jokes that even toddlers will find lame; and Prinze proves he isn't any better an actor in two dimensions than he is in three.

You expect a certain amount of sugar and snark in a modern children's film, but this tossed-off retelling reeks of folks just out to make a cheap buck.

The only real laughs are supplied by the Seven Dwarfs, who are portrayed as hillbilly garden gnomes.

Tolerable, but far from magical, "Happily N'Ever After" is just another one of what is becoming a genre: Lackluster CGI_animated films.

When played with stale jokey-jokes and lame one-liners, as it is here, it's not funny at all.

The story...is as arbitrary and pointless as the apostrophe in the second word of the title...

Happily N'Ever After is a cutting edge contraction for Happily Not Ever After. It's a shame other films weren't blessed with this hip foresight, otherwise we'd have N'Another Teen Movie and The World is N'Enough.

The CGI animation is third-rate and unimaginative. The screenplay isn't nearly as funny as it thinks it is . . . In short, HAPPILYN'EVER AFTER is a disappointment.
