Good visual graphics. Interesting choice of characters. So much non-stop singing. Maybe, it would have made a difference if all the songs were original. The message is not to insult physically "good-looking" people. It only reminds us and re-affirms that "beauty" and "love" is not skin deep. It is not something superficial. It is not something you see only with just your two eyes. It may not suit the majority's approval because it is not-so-stereo-typical kind of fantasy story like the "beauty and the beast" and "princess kissing a frog prince". Definitely for the kids with pure heart. Not recommended for highly superficial-minded adults.

After reading a few reviews I was not expecting to think much of this movie, but I was pleasantly surprised. I loved it. This movie is rated PG and it knows its audience: families. It manages to do something many movies fail at: it relies on entertainment instead of gratuitous violence. First of all, the look of the film, the creativity and range of the character design, and the animation, all very well executed. Because the movie is packed with innovative arrangements (and I must say some wonderful performances) of popular songs old and new, the story must remain simple, but it is not only solid, it incorporates some very funny as well as some sparkling and simultaneously touching moments. This is a musical. Think Sondheim meets animation. Live theater goers will rejoice! For this I would say it is innovative and very different, and perhaps brave, because it attempts to break new ground. I found at the beginning I felt there was too much singing, darn it! But I realized that in itself became part of the story, integral to the Fairy world, and much light is made if it later. I too, wished the uglier characters were more beautiful, but I realize that -- this also, is the point of the story! It's definitely a journey you do not expect to take. This movie is bold, beautiful, and goes where no man has gone recently. It talks about loving others, no matter their creed, color or... well, species, and some may find that scary. It is positive, uplifting, creative, moving, innovative, and refreshing. Bring a hankie if you cry at love stories. History will smile on this movie for taking a chance that there is an audience out there who still feels. Don't listen to the crankster critics. In this movie, life is beautiful, and everything it should be.
This film is really quite good and will probably develop a bit of a cult status among animated films. It's one of those unfortunate films that was declared dead before it was even given a chance to shine in theaters and as a result was poorly marketed and thrust into a unknowing world. Really I think the film would have done better released Valentine's Day weekend since the films main theme is love, a fact I'm certain you would not have guessed from viewing the poorly edited trailers. This film is also a musical, another thing the trailers failed to mention, and does a pretty decent job on the soundtrack. However if you're going into this film without knowing the prior too facts you are probably going to be a bit jarred by how it just leaps into them. The characters (even the sidekicks) are all pretty likable, and no one is particularly annoying save for maybe one character who doesn't get a lot of screen time. There are plenty of good jokes and a little a cheesiness (the good kind). Is everyone going to like it? No, it's definitely not going to sit well with people who hate musicals and a little sappiness, but overall it's a pretty likable movie that isn't anywhere near deserving the amount of hate that it is getting. If you have a chance to see it I recommend giving it a shot.
