Vaughn pays scant attention to the niceties of a well-told story and buries his shekels in a sparkling cast.

A film with true cross-generational appeal, Stardust is as satisfying as any of the summer's tent-pole blockbusters, and certainly more magical.

Great special effects, terrific scenery and a few good performances are dragged down by a sluggish storyline.

An uneven but entertaining romp that occasionally over-exerts itself. At times this Princess Bride wannabe feels more like The Adventures Of Baron Munchausen 2, but it's worth catching for Pfeiffer.

You could call it a cousin of 'Time Bandits' or 'The Princess Bride', but it lacks the former's originality and the latter's heart.

There's fantastical fun to be had here, but be sure to check cynicism at the door.

Patchy but great fun, peppering plenty of black humour into a sweet if silly fairy-tale romance.

Hugely enjoyable fantasy adventure with a witty script, strong comic performances, several wonderful gags and genuine chemistry between its two leads.

Massively pretty to look at, Stardust bursts with (original novel) author Gaiman's trademark invention.

Robert De Niro is a hoot as the pirate captain with a penchant for wearing red ostrich feathers as he does the Can Can in his underwear, and Michelle Pfeiffer amazes as she ages before our eyes going from exquisite beauty to wrinkled wicked witch in secon
