HAPPILY, N’EVER AFTER (2007 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.5|5.0 Starsììì

Happily N’Ever After—spunky with a likable plotline—sets its own tone to work as a fair to middling children’s film. While not the best in the children’s lineup, it truly works for its money.

Storyline

The Wizard who ensures all fairy tales have a happy ending goes on vacation.

Yes. A fun twist on modifying traditional endings of Hans Christian Andersen and Brothers Grimm fairy tales serves up a fair piece of entertainment for children.
