The perils of Penelope

  • Nov 8, 2008

+5
Can you imagine something worse
Than being born under a curse?
A young girl with a pretty pout
That's in the shadow of her snout
Until the day one of her own
Shall make their true love freely known

Her mother tries to make a match
By landing a blue-blooded catch
But each man that might break the spell
Takes one quick look, then runs like hel!
Leaving a disappointed lass
And one big pile of shattered glass

But then along comes scruffy Max
Who doesn't leave burnt tire tracks
But stays instead to have a chat
And make some music in B-Flat
But when it comes down to the crunch
He leaves just like the other bunch

So off she runs, Penelope
The whole wide world's for her to see
But it's no fun without some cash
And so she gets herself a stash
And sets about just living life
Without the husband-hunting strife

It ends exactly as you'd think
Penelope is in the pink
But half the fun is getting there
And this one's great, I do declare
If you like fantasy, and fun
I recommend you see this one


Short Attention Span Summary (SASS)

1. Family curse breeds sow
2. Mother seeks suitable suitor with silk purse to break curse
3. She's looking for love in all the wrong places
4. Great performances by Christina Ricci, James McAvoy, Catherine O'Hara (recreating her "Home Alone" persona), Reese Witherspoon (small part) and Peter Dinklage.
