A vengeful fairy is driven to curse an infant princess, only to discover that the child may be the one person who can restore peace to their troubled land.

I saw Maleficent last night and saying it was “pretty bad” is putting it lightly.  I kept hoping it would get better even though I knew it was a lost cause.

I watched the movie with a friend who was equally if not more appalled than I, here are a few of the comments we whispered during the film.
Note: comments in bold were said by my friend

 

This movie is horrible
 
 
Never Mess with a Jilted Lover
 
“You’re my Fairy Godmother.” Seriously Aurora, how daft can you be, when has a Fairy Godmother ever had horns?  
 
That was hardly a kiss /does this mean Maleficent and Aurora are lesbians?
Flounder and Sebastian could have done it faster
 
 
Just turn into a dragon and die already!
 
 
And they lived happily ever after with the fat fairies
I want my money back

  1. I thought the Maleficent/Aurora kiss thing was more of a mother/daughter thing. Men don't have to save you and what not. But this film fell so flat. I didn't see your review sooner.. it was when my family was in town. I wish I would've though!
