This movie is super-confusing and follows no guidelines. It's worse than Once Upon A Time, I swear!

They tried to keep it in the flow of a fairy-tale and that kind of screwed everything, what with clear difference in characters' inclinations. For example, strong Cinderella doesn't really work with conventionally jealous and hot-headed prince. But despite several failures it's actually a very good movie: funny, sweet and wonderfully unconventional.

The cast is very good, even if I only knew Anjelica Houston and Drew Barrimor.
Held myself from watching this movie before I read the book, and didn't regret it a bit. I like comparing books and movie adaptation and usually movies fail at recreating the world I've already imagined while reading the book.

In this case, while it didn't quite manage to capture the same feelings that come with the book, it still follows the tone and cadence of the book.

It's strange, really. Considering that they've cut most of the time Charlie spends without his friends and falls apart and the fact that most of the characters are very different from how they're described in the book, it's still somehow the same.

And tunnel scenes gave me chills, just like when I was reading the book.
