The main character has to be one of the most annoying little fuckers in film history. I am actually glad there are going to be sequels to it, just so I can go hate on the little fucker some more.
The wife just called me on the intercom to tell me to turn on Hannity so I could see the 'Go-Daddy Girl'. Am I lucky in love, or what? The wife says 'man, you gotta see this, she is maybe the most beautiful girl I have ever seen'. No darlin, that would be you.
Lucky, lucky man...
Anyway, about a half hour into the movie, Nat pokes me to get my attention, and has me lean down so she can horse whisper to me "He's kinda a stupid assie, isn't he..." someone behind us snorted soda out their nose...
Hey, 'assie' is okay...Gramma says it.
All in all a very good movie. Nat hid her face in my shoulder at least three times, and I put my hand over eyes about the same. Nat is now in love with dragons.
Sienna Guillory made me spoot in my britches all through the movie. She's just into her 30's, and she is a perfect woman.
Not a movie to go to for you art-film weenies, but a definite popcorn cruncher. I know, because we munched popcorn through it. Last time that happens. I'm out on a date with a girl I can't have sex with, and it costs me $12 in tickets, and $8.25 for a small bottle of water and a small bag of popcorn? Jeezly crow.
She sat there bug-eyed, and munched her way nearly to the bottom of the bag. This is only the second time she has been to a movie, the first being with the wife to some ballet and/or princess thing. Maybe ice-skating.
Then I took her out for a chocolate shake, and we went home. If she remembers this, I'd like to think I'll be dead, and it'll make her cry. "I remember when my Daddy took me to the movies one day, and there was snow everywhere, and..."
Actually, the character grew on me, and the film was full of believable twists and surprises, along with all of the comfortable Fantasy Fare.
All in all: Four enthusiastic thumbs up.
