Shakespearean tragedy may not seem a likely fit for a Disney family-friendly flick, but with a little magic the doomed love story transforms into a whimsical movie of laughs perfect for a family night out.

Please Note: We were not paid to publish this post. I actually was going to go to see the premiere for the media junket, but my darn strep throat and ear infection nixed that plan. Anyway, I haven’t yet had a chance to see the full movie, so I’ve been watching trailers and clips and reading reviews. I researched what various sites said regarding the age appropriate for viewing and I especially liked the detail given in this Common Sense Media Review that recommended ages 5 and up.
