Stardust

It's not as charming as The Princess Bride, but so little is. Michelle Pfeiffer thoroughly believable as terrifying witch queen. Undeservedly ignored much in the same way as A Little Princess. Other commenters have focused on DeNiro's transvestite character, which is certainly colorful but does not rise to the level of much import even in the limited context of the movie. People! An actor wearing a dress is not news. Recommended except for those truly bothered by the pretend reading of entrails.
