Also I have several friends with girls in the 3-7 age range and they all love the main girl and her hair. This is going to play like gangbusters to that crowd at first. I a curious how further marketing and word of mouth pushes the film. I am guessing ratatouille-ish. That movie did ok but didn't seem to blow people away. It was my favorite of theirs however I know several people that hold it in the same regard as a bug's life. I guess the next couple of weeks will be quite telling.
That's the thing. I'm not sure how much I want to give away, or how much I should give away. Days later I'm STILL having difficulty gauging what's kosher (hell, I just edited this post down to be even more vague). I don't even know how I would write a synopsis for it-- "a young princess, sick of being forced into the royal mold of her birthright, comes up with a plan to alter the course of her life but ends up screwing the pooch big time". But that's still really barebones. (And if anyone cries spoiler on me, they haven't been watching those TV spots/trailers.)
If the marketing changes direction and starts being honest about where the film goes, I'll be less tight-lipped. Suffice to say I really, really liked it.
Maybe a spoiler to some, but I don't really care-- that Japanese trailer? Yeah, it's full of shit.

Awesome. I'm looking forward to what you think of it-- though that mother-daughter scene won't get your blood up like you think, you sick, sick man!
