Penelope








Director - Mark Palansky

Genre - Comedy/Fantasy/Romance


As fairy tales go, this isn't half bad. But then, fairy tales have a certain "been there, done before" curse which almost always takes away their appeal. Christina Ricci is a rich girl born with a pig's snout as a result of a witch's wrath. After numerous efforts to get her married off fail, James McAvoy turns up at the door unperturbed it seems by a life-sized, in the flesh version of Miss Piggy. Is McAvoy the dashing gentleman come to rescue our cute pork-pie or the big bad wolf who wants to blow her whole house down? Do you really need a bedtime story at your age? If the answer's yes then put on your pajamas and go bananas!

2.5 STARS!

I might as well do so, I mean the part with the pajamas and going bananas ;) I also kind of missed tha fact James McAvoy is in this movie, one more reason to give it a try, hehe.
Great review as per usual :)
