The problem now is that so many fairy tales want to BE "The Princess Bride" (see "Tangled") and they never reach the same lofty heights.

A couple years ago I visited my dad and my step-brother John had this flick on his DVR so I turned it on.  My dad had never seen it, so we watched the whole thing and I kept checking my dad's expression and, outside of recognizing all the British actors like Mel Smith and so on, didn't really react.  Then the movie ended and he turned to me and just said "that was great."  His wife came in a minute or so later and he made us watch it again, and this dude never watches ANYTHING twice.  He really did love it.

Okay, a couple years ago The Rock was in this movie called "The Tooth Fairy" and the ONE watchable scene (outside of Seth McFarlane's odd cameo as a black market fairy dust pusher) as Billy Crystal, and give him credit, they clearly wanted him to be Miracle Max but he did it differently, he was sort of the "Q" character and he spoke a mile a minute and it's just a chucklefest for a few minutes.  At least for me.
