I replied “I thought this was a kids movie, I don’t think you do . . .”
“I saw an interview on the Today Show, she shows her ass” my wife taunts me.
Me – “I was going to go see the movie with you and Nicole anyway, you don’t have to lie to me to get me to go”
Wife – “Ok – no Michelle ass for you . . .”
For some reason Shannon thought she was going to have to bribe me to go see Stardust, but I was willing to see the movie. I will say there is a scene where Michelle drops her robes, but don’t see higher than the back of her knee or lower than her shoulder, which lead me to be hopeful. Oh well, I still enjoyed the movie.
- Michelle Pfeiffer – A mean witch, who doesn’t show her ass
- Robert De Niro – A swashbuckling pirate, with a secret . . . Aaarrrrggg
- Peter O’Toole – The king, who kind of gets things started
- Claire Daines – She’s the star, no literally she is the star
- Sienna Miller – Pretty town girl
- Ricky Gervais – Witty as always in his role as a trader
The story centers around another world separated from ours by a stone fence. There is a hole in the fence that allows people to go back and forth between worlds. A star lands from the heavens on earth, but on the other side of the fence. This is where the adventure begins. All the actors turn in great performances, and it seems they enjoy themselves in the film.
The film is rated PG-13 for fantasy violence and a few adult situations. I typically judge a movie but who in the family likes it, and this film, my wife, my daughter and I all found the movie enjoyable.
Warning – younger kids may find the witches in the movie a bit scary.
