The true, true story of "The Princess And The Pea"
Why It Sucks
- Alongside Annie and Buddy's Musical Christmas, the film has an extremely poor grasp of the source material. Notable examples include the Jester being a guy instead of a girl and The King being bit on the butt instead of the neck
- Where is the The Minstrel?! In the original 1959 show, he served as a narrator and in the junior version, he appeared with The Jester as well being the narrator.
- Extremely inappropriate moments such as Winnifred almost getting raped by Dauntless
- Wasted the talents of legendary actress Carol Burnett, along with Tracey Ullman, Zooey Deschanel, Matthew Morrison, Michelle Harrison, and others who were involved in the TV movie.
