"Rob Reiner's friendly 1987 fairy-tale adventure delicately mines the irony inherent in its make-believe without ever undermining the effectiveness of the fantasy."
- Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"It's a lively, fun-loving, but nevertheless epic look at the nature of true love."
- Rita Kempley, Washington Post
