Penelope (2006)

Genre: Comedy, Fantasy, Romance

This is a charming and sweet movie which is perfect for those that like light hearted fairytales πŸ™‚ . This has a more modern twist on a fairytale but keeps up the appeal of one throughout.Β  There is a fairly decent cast in this movie and the main two, James McAvoy and Christina Ricci, play particularly good characters πŸ™‚ . I liked the design of the film and quite liked the costume set of Penelope. There are quite good moments in the narrative like the wedding and the interactions of Max and Penelope. My favourite scene is the opening with the narration as it sets up the film well and the overall idea of this story is interesting enough. However, as much as this film tries it can’t captivate the entire way through and parts become cheesy πŸ˜› . Β The cheesy element is enhanced by some of the side characters like the parents and Edward Vanderman over acting at parts. The first half of the film before the “public reveal” was the best section. Though the ending has a nice moral style to it and I did like the relationship of Penelope and Max. Overall this a pleasant film that the entire film can watch together πŸ™‚ Enjoy πŸ˜€ .

I give this film 3 Stars out of 5!
