CHARMING

SYNOPSIS:
Three fairy tale princesses find themselves engaged to the same guy, Prince Charming.

Review by Louise Keller:
There's a nice vibe about Charming with its cursed, self-important protagonist, saccharin sweet princesses and feisty heroine. From the producers of Shrek, this fairy tale with a twist is entertaining, colourful and uplifting as the prince of the title tries to earn his right to finding a true love. What does a handsome prince endowed with a curse have to do? To prove himself, he needs to succeed at three impossible tasks. He must cross an impossible pass; survive an unsurvivable attack; conquer unconquerable beasts.

Ashley Tisdale, Avril Lavigne and G.E.M. voice the roles of Cinderella, Snow White and Sleeping Beauty. Bet you never though you would see those three fairy tale icons together on screen. Watch for John Cleese as the Fairy Godmother in a delicious cameo. It's all tongue in cheek with a snappy screenplay and one liners that teeter between hilarious and cheesy.

Every girl wants a Charming - what are you waiting for?
