Stardust is a 2007 fantasy film based on the Gaiman novel with the same name. I read the book some time ago and never really intended to see the movie, but The Elder Son gave it to me for my birthday, so... Turns out I like the film. It's a fairy tale, sweet and simple, and reminds me a bit of The Princess Bride. We always like Nathaniel Parker. Michelle Pfeiffer, Peter O'Toole and Robert De Niro are all fun in this. Ian McKellen is the narrator.


The Telegraph speaks well of it and calls it a "cheesy but spirited bit of nonsense". The Guardian likes it, as does BBC. Roger Ebert says, "I liked it, but "The Princess Bride" it's not." The New York Times does not like it.
