Storyline

In the fifteenth century, the Kingdom of Anwyn has been in a war against the Lothian Kingdom for three hundred years. Now the womanizing Prince John of Anwyn (Sean Maguire) will marry Lothian Princess Gwendolyn (Christina Applegate) to bring peace to the kingdoms. He rides with his clumsy wizard squire Rodney of Tudor (Martin Short) and his father King Leo (Colin Fox) to the Lothian Castle for the wedding. However, on the day of the wedding, Prince John is caught shagging a peasant woman, and Lothian King Pius (David Fox) and Queen Isabel (Marcia Bennett) curse Prince John and Rodney, and they are doomed to "frogging" by the wizard Wacktazar (Julian Richings) for all eternity. The spell will only be broken if a maiden kisses John and marries him. Five hundred years later, John and Rodney are still frogs. One day, a boy catches and brings them to New York City and they escape to Central Park. When Margo (Bernadette Peters) kisses John in the park, Rodney and he become men again. John ...

certainly not a favorite, but still funny enough to watch again
27 April 2005 | by phantom_fandomSee all my reviews

This movie is somewhat funny. The characters are pretty lame, and its predictable, but its still enough to make you smile. I rented the movie and my mom came and watched it with me, we both still quote the lines to each other. :-) I can guarantee it won't be on your favorites list, but you will probably want to see it again. If you don't like Romance and Corny Comedy, however, Don't watch it! The whole movie is a ridiculous romance, with predictable turns. The characters don't seem very real, in fact most of them are nauseatingly fake. The comedy isn't all that good either, I think I laughed out loud twice. What makes it so funny is the thought that if people were really like these characters...we would be extinct. I would recommend renting another movie, but if you are a fan of frogs or looking for prince charming, you may just like it.
