Such a sweet story! Absolutely recommend for any one growing up and living with an imprefection (which is everyone!)!! Great as a guide to dealing with life and loving yourself. Do enjoy a lot!!

It seems a bit ridiculous that a pig nose could cause people to cringe in horror and jump out of windows (especially considering the amount of ugly people in this world), but this decent little fable-like comedy has a sweet moral message and makes the best of a simple idea.

Really liked it. Simple and whimsical storyline. Clean and good message.

It's silly, but endearing and adorable if you can wince through some fumble-y parts in it's script.

I just loved the movie.. Great perfomance by most of the actors especially James Macavoy who was just awesome. I liked the screenplay too.

What I got to say about this movie "Penelope" is that is is a horrendous of a movie!! "My word, is it a bad movie!" The performances in this are so pathetic. The directing by Mark Palansky is awful. The screenplay by Leslie Caveny is so discouraging! The score in this movie was fine. But my the problem that I have to dislike is the make-up. It's kills the aesthetic of the main character in this movie. "I'm raving that "Penelope" is not a good movie!"

This movie is ridiculously cute! The style is reminiscent of Amélie, but a little softer and more fairy tale like.

And SPOILER (somewhat), there is quite the kiss in this film!

A fairytale, a romantic comedy about a cursed girl finding a way to live her life and, aside, a young man with no purpose in life. I thought i would be boring but its actually pretty entertained.

Not gonna win any awards but it was a very sweet and enjoyable movie.

James McAvoy once again proved he can be good in anything, and succeeded in making me love him even more.

Of course it started off goofy, but when it ended I had a big smile on my face. It is nice to see a fairytale that explores the power within.

Penelope is a story of a girl with a pig nose. its not even that ugly but she gets riduculed for it. This film just reminded me how horrible humans are when someone doesn't fit the criteria for the norm. anyway she stood up to the bullies and made some friends and only when she truly loved herself was the spell then broken. Loads of famous faces in this. it was enjoyable but not amazing

Despite it's uneven narrative and it's rather bittersweet story, Penelope has an effecting all-star cast of British and American A-listers and the script isn't total rubbish, plus the wonderful morale of the story makes a great message for young girls.

A truly terrible 'rom-com'. Unfunny, poorly plotted, with some worrying subtext with the parents attitude towards her daughter. Honestly loathsome, however saved somewhat by the ever wonderful Peter Dinklage. Dinklage gives an outstanding performance, adding layers to an otherwise shallow role. A hateful piece of trash, with a sacred gem hidden within.
