For what it was, I think that the film was entertaining enough for me to waste almost an hour and a half of my life on it.  There were moments of pure fun, major thanks to Jolie’s starpower, though that was not enough to elevate the material.  Her presence made the experience bearable.  It was a different take on a classic story yet somehow you would know how things would turn up early on.  That true love’s kiss thingamajig was just lame.  You will just see the film for enjoying the decent visual effects and for Angelina Jolie and her Joan Rivers cheekbones.  For a film about  imagination, fantasy and magic, there really was not much of them.  C-
