I cannot believe the fabulous reviews this trainwreck received! What a nightmare! Spoiler alert!
There are multiple "main" characters all of whom are experiencing existential dilemmas or, in the case of the maid, a psychotic break. Note to parents of young kids, this psychotic break means that she decides that SHE is the princess and then (on the advice of a once kind, now malevolent, rat who she thinks is just a voice in her head giving her directions) kidnaps the princess to be eaten by feral rats in a gladiator style ring. I swear I am not making this up. The titular main character, Despereaux, although cute is kind of an afterthought in the psych ward of the rest of the story. He is banished and condemned to death (this is a kids movie?!?!) by the mouse council of elders because he is not afraid enough. His parents buckle to societal pressure and kick him to the curb. He is then tossed to the gladiator pit as bait for a rabid cat for the entertainment of the mob of rats. SKIP IT!!!
