The beginning of the end (of greatness). After two epic films, was it to much to ask that the third could do them justice? Sadly it doesn't. I find myself watching this movie only for the princesses' escape scene and the soundtrack, tough.
It resolves some minor plot holes from the second film, but what is usual the case with these animated movies the supporting fairy tale characters are the best and have the funniest moments. Worse is the story about the new successor to the throne which is a boring one seen in countless films and the body change subplot between the donkey and cat should have been a lot funnier than one very bad joke.
