Hathaway cemented her reputation as the contemporary tween princess with this irreverent fairy tale romp. Despite the fact it contains Cary Elwes, it's no Princess Bride, but it's no disaster either.
In fact, there's a pleasing streak of knowing humour that puts this a cut above lazier family fare, injecting the fantasy format with some up-to-date gags. A musical number (Queen's 'Somebody to Love') also gives Hathaway the chance to demonstrate her considerable pipes.
Anne Hath-A-Way with… singing. She’s an old-school all-round entertainer.
