Name: Penelope
Film Maker: Summit
Stars: Christina Ricci, James McAvoy, Catherine O'Hara, & Reese Witherspoon

Forlorn heiress Penelope Wilhern (Christina Ricci) is cursed, and the only way out is to fall in love with someone of suitable stock. But how can she find her soul mate when she's sequestered inside her family's estate with only her parents (Catherine O'Hara and Richard E. Grant) to keep her company? Oscar winner Reese Witherspoon co-produced this untraditional fairy tale about a girl who bucks convention to create her own happy ending.

Penelope is a cute fairytale with great actors. The storyline was no wheres near in depth or thought-provoking, but it was an adorable story all the same.

James McAvoy as Johnny/Max
I feel that they conveyed the ugliness of the myth fairly and the story kept true to it's characters. I absolutely loved James McAvoy as the main love interest. He was amazing. (Also, his style!?Love it! Total rogue.)

There isn't much to review on since this movie wasn't spectacular nor was is bad. It's a simple chick flick for those who love happy endings. (And no Kleenex boxes. ;) )
