EW review: Utterly awful ‘Happily N’Ever After’

(Entertainment Weekly) — "Happily N'Ever After" is to Pixar what color-by-numbers is to traditional Disney animation.

The press notes boast that the total production time was only 15 months, "unheard of for a first-class computer animated movie." Maybe there's a reason why that's unheard-of.

This thrown-together, dumpy-looking misfire finds Cinderella's wicked stepma (Sigourney Weaver) taking over Fairy Tale Land. Sounds subversive, but "Happily" is stuffed with stock characters — the vain prince, the critter sidekicks — who adamantly stay stock.

EW Grade: D-
