A world of fairy tales.

Whats better than a fairy tale? How's about a whole slew of fairy tales intertwined together. That is what this movie is about. A single father and his daughter fall into a world of fairy tales (primary Disney ones) and go on an adventure of a lifetime. They stumble upon the Nine Kingdoms, each of which is home of a famous fairy tale character; i.e. Snow White, Cinderalla, Sleeping Beauty, etc.. There they encounter a man wolf, singing fish, trolls, magic mirrors, and a whole slew of other characters from famous fairy tales in western literature. They get caught up in a power struggle between a niave king whose been turned into a dog, and an evil witch, which turns out to be her mother.

Clocking in at over 5 hours, this made for TV miniseries is a joy to watch. There is comedy, romance, tragedy, some action, and enough drama to keep kids and adults entranced. The music is alright, the cinematography is good, and the character development is great. Many of the characters get sufficient screen time to develop their backgrounds and personalities, and the dialogue is not plagued by one-liners. All in all a great movie to watch.
