Cinderella, that unstoppable Disney legend, found her prince (who could have seen that one coming?) and followed the fairy-tale path all the way to the top of the domestic box office this weekend, proving that cinematic dreams really do come true (especially when one dresses the part). Well-dressed Liam Neeson, part of the heavy-hitting Have-Gun-Will-Travel troupe, decided to Run All Night, stopping only for autograph signing, on his dark, dingy road to stardom. Star maker Kingsman: The Secret Service has most certainly learned the secret to finding fame and fortune during his clandestine travels. With longer days and warmer temperatures on the horizon, our crime-stopping cast were relieved moviegoers hadn’t lost their Focus for indoor entertainment and living vicariously through their imaginary selves. The imaginative folks managing The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel were offering their movie guests the most engaging accommodations, treating both real and fairy tale characters to first-class treatment.
Our story choices were first-class this weekend, with damsels in distress, heroes, hellions and a hotel of the exotic kind setting the stage for can’t miss entertainment. The girl in the glass slipper, however, ruled the movie kingdom as she found herself on that long-awaited road to Happily Ever After…
