Got to see this for free. Pretty sure I wouldn't see it otherwise and certainly not in theaters. I must confess to liking a few moments and the overall idea (that Disney cartoon characters come to the real world) is good but... I wanted it to be slightly less sincere and more ironic and also dwell less on the Elf-esque naivete like the princess talking to a castle billboard and more on the differences between fairy tale cartoons and real world like the chipmunk not being able to talk and the princess dress not fitting through the door. I would've loved to see Susan Sarandon have a hard time walking on her heels (even though she has green magic lightning bolts) and her dragon form trying to fly but having wings too small to work or something (instead of her not even trying to fly. Who ever heard of a dragon that couldn't fly!?). I also wanted a Ghostbusters shot at the end of people at street level covered in the glittery aftermath of vanquished evil.
I also could've used Dempsey being more freaked out when he finds himself in the middle of a song and dance number... like "how did I get on this boat?" or "how can those old guys dance like that?" and stuff like that.
So it's safe to say my hopes were pulling the movie away from what it was... unfair perhaps, but whatever... that's why it's my opinion.
