    Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert

    The movie is bright, the dialogue has wit and intelligence, and Roberts and Grant are very easy to like. By the end, as much as we're aware of the ancient story machinery groaning away below deck, we're smiling.

    USA Today Susan Wloszczyna

    Its deadpan wit, ingenious fairy-tale premise and superbly accomplished cast will leave you feeling positively oxygenated.

    Chicago Tribune

    It's funny, sympathetic, mostly smart, and it boasts a likable cast of characters led by two performers who have star power and know how to use it.

OK for kids 13+

Not deep, but definitely funny--teens will enjoy.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know there's occasional profanity, ranging from mild to heavy. William's flatmate makes crude remarks and wears lewd T-shirts. A good deal of alcohol is consumed at parties. Comments about breasts, leering at breasts, questions about sleeping with someone, and jokes about masturbating. Also, a comment about seeing old friend Pandora's "box." The two leads are seen post-coital, but not naked.

  • Families can talk about whether or not they would want to be famous.
