So I was about to chalk this up to just another terrible kids movie, but can we talk about the racist dialogue concerning the black Mary Had a Little Lamb character? I was appalled that in 2009 such dialogue was even allowed. So terrible.

The Synopsis for Happily N'Ever After 2 (2009) 720p
Fairy tales collide when Mambo and Munk tip the scales of good and evil once again. This time Princess Snow White is a misguided teenager who'd rather have fun with friends Red Riding Hood, Goldilocks and Little Bo Peep than help peasants. When Snow White's father is matched up with Lady Vain - a scheming witch brewing to rule the kingdom - Snow White becomes a thorn in Lady Vain's side. Snow White is soon tricked by Lady Vain (with Rumpelstiltskin's help) into spreading vicious gossip about the townspeople, forcing her to flee. Through rebuilding the three little pigs' houses with the seven dwarves leading the way, Snow White learns the value of helping others. Only Snow White can foil her dad's wedding to stop Lady Vain. With Mambo and Munk in tow, Snow White proves she can rule the kingdom, while bringing balance back to the scales of good and evil.

Mildly racistReviewed bywinkyfishVote: 1/10
Why this is a bad rating, I'll never know. This movie has fantastic animation, voice acting, as well as charming characters with plenty of originality and charisma. Oh, and don't get me started on the script; flawless and memorable lines, such as: "girls, i need some 911" and "holla!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" I highly recommend this to anyone ever in existence. In fact, it beat out all my favorite movies. (take a look)
So, it has been a very long time since I've seen the movie. Looking back, it wasn't as great as I remember. But, it could be how the movie looks. I watched it on a standard definition television and it looked pretty good. At the time. I had it on DVD and I mostly remember the stupid minigames. But, that's not what we're here for. To keep things short and sweet, it looks like a movie that really Pixar would've made way back in 1985. Excluding the animations, which are stiffer than a 2×4. The hair is... Well, they didn't even try. But the music is pretty good. Although, the sound effects shouldn't be used so frequently.
I will give credit where it is due, it isn't trying to rip a certain movie off, this isn't Video Brinquedo here. This is Lionsgate, and while they're not known for the complete best movies, this is up there story wise. The voice acting, though, is a totally different story. So, I'm to assume the producers couldn't get the old voice actors back. Well, most. Munk and Mambo are voiced by completely different people. In the first film, it was Andy Dick and Wallace Shawn. But, only one makes a return and doesn't even voice the same character. Wallace Shawn didn't voice Munk, and Andy Dick didn't even make a return. So, there's a negative. But, the acting could be MUCH worse.
Now, yes, I did mention there was a movie before it. Clearly, this is a sequel. But a bad one. Like, a really bad follow-up. So bad that Lionsgate made it only direct-to-video. The first movie had a theatrical release, though. This one didn't, and it really shows. Now, before I end this, remember before how I mentioned the animations were stiff? I didn't mention the physics. They're not on point. Whereas the first movie had decent physics, this one is way off. Then again, this movie wasn't a multi-million dollar project that failed to turn a complete profit. But, the first one didn't focus on the villainesses breasts for the physics. No joke, they spent more time animating them as if that's what kids were gonna look at. Well, if they didn't then, they will now. I'd speak on profit, but for some odd reason there's no documentation of the budget at all, only it's revenue. Though, it was pretty pitiful. In DVD sales, it generated just $2,488,134. That's pretty bad considering the first movie generated about $20,000,000 outside of theaters.
To sum it all up, it's a lackluster sequel, but it remains cohesive and the plot is of similar fashion to the first one, excluding the modernizing of a medieval setting. While the first one has the charm and looks to make you like it to a certain extent, this one just falls too short. This movie had some good bits but that's about it. Maybe I'm too harsh with my rating, but I think it's fair enough.
