It’s always fun to see a new take on an old fairy tale – that’s why we loved “Enchanted,” after all. OK, that and Patrick Dempsey’s hair. The line of fairy tale remakes and mash-ups is certainly long – Shrek 1, 2 and 3, Happily N’Ever After, etc. etc. So it was inevitable that Lionsgate would follow up previous successes with … yes … “Happily N’Ever After 2.” This time, Snow White is a teenage princess who’d much rather hang with buddies Red Riding Hood and Goldilocks than help people. But she soon learns her lesson, as she battles the evil scheming of Rumpelstiltskin and her father’s fiance, Lady Vain, with a little help from three pigs, seven dwarves and – dear lord, that’s a complicated plot. The DVD hits stores next month but we’ve got it now – and you can too. Click “comments” and tell us about your favorite 21st century fairy tale. We’ll draw a winner’s name next Sunday night.
