I do think the whole prince story arc could have been cut (they could have fit the pie scene somewhere in there). Jack Lemmon stole this film(like he does with most films) and Edith Head's costumes were flawless. It was too long but did enjoy myself most of the time.
I even wrote a Christmas composition in Kindergarten oh-so inspired after having watched this. That big of a deal, huh? Indeed! Everything in this film sums up my childhood that is why i'm extra careful when looking back at it. I try not to. Maybe a sequence here and there. I rather remember it hazily than ruin it by being a "grown-up" about it.
