Of course, there were a few things I liked. The costumes are ah-mazing! I have so much love for the costumes, I can't tell you. The choreography is very good, too. And I like the idea of casting Dauntless older (like in his forties), since it makes the entire kingdom's desperation so much more palpable. Since part of the conceit of the show is that no one is allowed to get married until the prince does, you can bet that everyone in this version is pulling for Winifred to pass the test. And while Tracey Ullman is great in the part of the titular princess, I'm still not sure how I feel about that British accent.
...Is it truly terrible that the reason I finally got around to watching this is because Matthew Morrison is in it, and I wanted to see more of him after watching the Glee preview?
