When the wickedest of all wicked stepmothers gets her hands on the wizard's staff, all of Fairy Tale Land is turned on its head. We take a look at the latest fractured fairy tale from the makers of Shrek.

Happily N'Ever After - There Goes the Neighborhood

When a wizard leaves his two bumbling assistants in charge while he goes on vacation, a series of events is set in motion that will turn Fairy Tale Land on its head. Cinderella's (Sarah Michelle Gellar) wicked stepmother gets a hold of the wizard's staff and quickly puts an end to the fairy tale endings of Fairy Tale Land's well-known romances.

Happily N'Ever After - Enchanted With Ella

Cinderella (or Ella to her friends) is on track to get her prince when her wicked stepmother, Frieda, gets in the way. Now Ella and her best friend, Rick the serving boy, have to step up to the plate to save Fairy Tale Land. But does Ella really want her fairy tale ending? And will Rick ever get the courage to make his play for Ella?

Happily N'Ever After - DVD Features

The Happily N'Ever After DVD comes with a ton of cool features including an alternate ending, deleted scenes, and three wickedly fun featurettes! It also comes packed with five different games - a magical matchmaker, Mambo's Memory Mix-Up and one that lets you choose your own ending. But that's not all - it also has commentary from the director, and original storyboards!

Happily N'Ever After - Bottom Line

Happily N'Ever After is full of quick, funny lines, but not a lot else. The film draws a lot of inspiration from the Shrek movies, but doesn't have the heart and intelligence to match up. While the film has some pretty clunky CGI animation, its bright color palette help out the visuals a lot. Your younger sibs will probably love this movie more than you do so why not get on mom's good side and take them to see it? It will definitely give you leverage next time you negotiate your allowance.

I like The Legend Of Korra slightly better because that show took risks that were hardly taken in a show of its kind. It included a lot of mature themes and it really connects with today's older youth.
