Rumpled Stiltskin

COMEDY. King Lariat and Queen Querliette must search their six-block kingdom to find a wife for Prince Moe. The two top contenders include Drizella, who can pull her lower lip over the top of her head, and Prunella, who can burp the national anthem. That leaves Penelope Ann, who is completely talentless. Desperate, Penelope Ann’s parents tell the King and Queen that their daughter can spin straw into gold. Doubtful, the King and Queen lock Penelope Ann in the prison tower with a bale of straw and a spinning wheel. All seems lost for Penelope Ann until a bagpipe-playing rap star, Rumpled Stiltskin, appears. Besides his impressive musical talent, Rumpled just happens to be able to spin straw into gold…but for a price. All he wants is Penelope Ann’s first-born child and a single-family castle on an 18-hole golf course in Boca Raton, FL!
