Happily N'ever After

Critics Consensus

Happily N'Ever After has none of the moxy, edge, or postmodern wit of the other fairy-tales-gone-haywire CG movie it so blatantly rips off.

Movie Info

Cinderella's wicked stepmother has tipped the balance of power toward the dark side in Fairy Tale Land, and now it's up to the put-upon princess to restore order and ensure that good triumphs in an animated adventure featuring the voices of Sarah Michelle Gellar, Freddie Prinze Jr., Sigourney Weaver, and George Carlin. For years, the Wise Wizard has worked hard to ensure that the scales of good and evil were always well-balanced, but as with any hard worker the Wise Wizard needs a relaxing vacation every once in a while. When the Wise Wizard goes on holiday, his faithful assistants Munk and Mambo make the crucial mistake of allowing Cinderella's wicked stepmother, Frieda, come into possession of their master's magical staff. With time fast running out before Frieda casts a shadow of darkness and sorrow over Fairy Tale Land, Cinderella must now awaken from her romantic dreams to take on her fearsome stepmother with a little help from her best friend, Rick, and a virtual army of heroic dwarves and fairies. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Happily N'ever After


"Happily Never After"? Happily, never again! I'd take on the rabid wolf before sitting through this nightmare at grandma's house. Although there are original aspects to the story, this is a predictable and underdeveloped tale with inelegant animation. The voice work is not impressive for any of the actors, except possibly Wallace Shawn, who just has such an interesting voice anyway. The jokes were not clever and the story was bland in its denouement. Having thoroughly bored me within the first 30 minutes, the 87-minute run time seemed overly long.

Happily N'Ever After is a movie that re-defines the word, "suck", for eighty minutes. I watched this movie on DVD (so glad I didn't waste money to see this in the theater) and by the first quote was muttered, I knew this was going to suck. Like how The Wild made Madagascar look bad, Happily N'Ever After makes Shrek look bad. EXTREMELY BAD!! I don't know how this happened but a few weeks ago, I felt like watching it again. But then the DVD was severely scratched. SO HAPPY! The movie offers no heart and the humor is so dry and bad. Even the voice acting is bad! This marks as the worst animated film I ever saw. If you have nothing to do on a boring day, watch paint dry instead of watching this.
