Holy moly!!!!!!!!!!!!! This one came completely out of left field for me.
Knowing nothing of the movie, I assumed it's just some light fairy tale movie. And it is that, but also so much more. This is like a fairy tale Galore! I swear the guy who wrote this was on more drugs than the guy who wrote Alice in Wonderland (and we all know that guy was tripping balls).
