Slight. Uninspired. Mediocre.
Cursed by the bitter fairy, Maleficent, Princess Aurora is destined to die at the age of sixteen from being pricked by a spindle. Her fairy godmothers alter the curse as best they can so that instead of death she will be put in eternal sleep. That’s where a prince comes in. Oddly blasé work from pretty good source material by the Disney people, this classic is not especially thrilling, funny, romantic, musical, or scary. Perfectly mediocre.
