Actors – Anna Kendrick, Meryl Streep, Chris Pine, Emily Blunt, Daniel Huttlestone, James Corden
Plot – A baker and his wife would like to have a kid but a witch ( Meryl Streep) puts a curse on that family because of the baker’s father, who stole from the witches Garden. His father stole magic beans which made the the witch become a witch because of a spell her mother put on her. The only way they can have a child is if they retrieve 3 items: golden slipper, cow as white as milk, and hair as yellow as corn. Then we have the classic Cinderella tale. Then the jack in the bean stock tale.
My review – I had many different thoughts on this movie. It started peppy and enjoyable and I love looking at Anna Kendrick, but throughout the film I got annoyed. I got annoyed at the signing, because it wasn’t very good. Jack was a terrible singer and the Red Riding Hood wasn’t much better. I thought there would be more dialogue among the other actors but it was 90% singing which got me mad. The story was fine, you knew that the baker and his wife were going to find the three items, it was predictable. As for the Cinderella story, they didn’t really aim much on that aspect as I thought they would. They paid more attention to the baker and his wife trying to find the three items, yes Cinderella pretty much gave it to them but still focus on the other 3 stories in the movie. And the ending of this movie- HOLY SHIT- it kept going and going. I remember my dad telling me that he was going to go to the bathroom and I told him there’s only 5 minutes left…..nope more like 45 minutes, literally! They could of ended it around an hour and 35 minutes but they made it another 45 minutes and it didn’t make sense. The ending was very rushed I felt and not well put together. So from my review I say you should RENT THIS. I was going to say just leave it but honestly there were some funny parts and touching moments in this movie you may like.
