Critic Reviews for Crossed Swords (The Prince and the Pauper)

All Critics (1)

  • Charming, funny and great turns from a cast with no finger-wagging. But if you don't like psychosis-inducing imagery, steer clear.

Audience Reviews for Crossed Swords (The Prince and the Pauper)


Star studded but lackluster version of the Prince and the Pauper. Reed, Scott and Harrison acquit themselves well and Raquel, who has a nothing part, looks beautiful.
