Watched with the kids. The opening 15 minutes are so sleepy and romance-heavy, it is difficult to get a 9 year old boy to sit through that.
But the sword fight. That sword fight is worth the wait. Just two actors nailing the whole sequence and looking great doing it.
The kids like Andre. Who doesn't like Andre?
Robin Wright debuts in a thankless role, in my opinion. Buttercup is saddled with the most achingly sentimental and theatrical dialogue, which plays SO big when up close on camera. Wright plays it as is, and she does great with the material.
