Back to “Ever After” the sort of feminist retelling of Cinderella starring Drew Barrymore as Danielle Dubarberak. This movie is supposed to take place in France. What is with the English accents? Why not just set it in England and make up that there could be a prince Henry as hot and annoying as Dougray Scott. If they were trying to be historically accurate, they failed on many fronts.
Because I’ve seen this movie 93 times I feel it important to tell you line’s my sisters and I love quoting and why we enjoy this annoying habit. Let me also add, I'm not going to "cheat" by going to imdb or google these quotes. I like to do this from memory, even if they are inaccurate. I'm sure the names are spelled wrong as well, since I'm in the B- class of spellers in America.
“The Prince has read Utopia” – proves you don’t have to like the same books your boyfriend does.
“My father was an excellent swordsman” –really? We never see him with a sword, teaching you about swords or you even with a sword. He also dies when you are 8. You remember those skills?
“The shoes are too small” – we suffered for fashion even back in the olden days
“A bird can love a fish but where will they live”- interracial dating debate was sparked here.
“I shall try”- you’ll try? How about say yes or no to the Prince. The indecisiveness kills me.
“Why did you have to be so wonderful”- he’s so wonderful because he stole your idea to open up a university? Oh right she got some action.
“I can still whip you”- even at the end of the movie she’s still flirting inappropriately with her questionable as to if he is gay or straight friend Gustav.
“I will not yield”-he’s such a winey, spoiled baby the audio sounds weird here.
“Ohh and I want to invite the gypsies to the ball”-they are fun partying thieves!
“How dare you raise your voice to a lady”-all us girls are in love, he saves the girl.
“Yes and I found it dull and boring”-he is very opinionated
“It is your mouth that has me memorized”-VOMIT!!!
“And the name is Henry if you don’t mind”-now he’s a comedian
“Looking bored, Buying margaritte a broach” best quote in the movie as far as I am concerned.
“No one will be looking at your shoes, you look down to no one” except the servant you are going to buy back. Hello Gustav she’s playing a courtesan which I thought were classy whores back in the day.
“Think Danielle, your father’s book or your mother’s shoes” – pick the shoes you already read the book!
This is a gesture she does, not a quote- After Danielle’s father falls off his horse Madam runs out of the house then puts the back of her hand to her mouth, it is SO FORCED! I LOVE IT!
“I love our little intrigues, any other little tidbits” –great use of tidbits
“Needs to draw some attention”-what accent is she doing here?
