Pixie Propaganda?

Yesterday the kids and I snuggled into the sofa to watch the traditional Sunday Afternoon family film.

This week it was The Magical Legend of The Leprechauns, a feature cram packed with famous faces (including a young (voice of) Darth Maul as the piggish brother of the love interest).

How can I put this? It truly is a magical move, IF you're nine years old. Daughter loved it.

For myself it was worth the numb backside and twisted spine from being hugged through the 'exciting bits', for a single quote, made by Phyllida Law playing Lady Margaret (the fairy's princess' lady in waiting), on the subject of love and why it was a wonderful thing.

It can make a man think almost as much of a woman as he does of himself.
Perfect.

Except.

Except that at one point we discussed whether the opposing Leprechaun and Fairy kings really meant their offers of peace.

"Oh no" says Daughter, 9, "I don't trust them, I only trust the women."

That's perfect, too; what wisdom at such a young age :).

Ha! Daughter's got her head on straight, indeed! (With certain exceptions, of course -- I'd trust the likes of Bart, I think. He seems an honorable soul.)
