This fairytale for our times has a great cast, and without it might be exceedingly trite. But our leads are able to take the simple script and do a little something extra with it. Penelope has been cursed by a witch from long ago, and was born with a pig's nose. If she is ever truly loved for herself by her own kind, this slight oddity will disappear. However, this curse so traumatizes her parents that they lock her away for her own protection. And then they bring in males they hope to marry her off to hoping one won't disappear screaming into the night and keep her from the claws of the paparazzi. The chemistry between Ricci and McElvoy is excellent and keeps this movie from being tedious, and Witherspoon is a hoot. Nothing truly innovative here, but an entertaining story good for children and adults alike.
