Princess and the Wizard, The

FARCE. The Queen is determined to find a princess to marry her son, but it isn’t an easy task since the Prince is a childish videogame geek. The sophisticated, mature Princess Gladys is a perfect pick for the Prince, so the Prime Minister asks the resident Wizard to concoct a love potion that will make Princess Gladys fall in love with the Prince. The Wizard consults a spell book he bought on sale at Wal-mart, and through an act of “wiz-dumb,” the Princess ends up falling madly in love with the Prime Minister instead. Enraged, the Prince calls upon his assassin to get rid of the Prime Minister, but it turns out this “assassin” never actually kills anyone. He just gives them money and a one-way ticket to New Jersey!
