Kind of a cross between Full House and Sinbad the Sailor, this mini-serie is a perfect example of family fun.

How did I miss this one ? Beau Bridges is not Douglas Fairbanks and nobody is asking him to be. His goody-two-shoes look fits the part as required. The two girls will remind you of Bob Saget's hit show. They were casted to project the perfect daughters' aura. Effects are plenty and are quite convincing. Some very imaginative sets are supporting the cast to deliver this soft Dungeon and Dragons tale. To get this fairy epic on prime time, only a couple of fight scenes are shown. THe story is quite tight and the fantasy quest is taking most of the running time. No wasted time here.... It even includes an exotic gorgeous girl, for the teenagers to eyeball. Everything that the genre demands is there. It is, though, in a softer way. Nothing is overdone like in "Pirates of the Caribeans" !!!! There is even a few hints of the "Wizard of Oz".

For $7.00, this 2001 serie that premiered on Odyssey channel is a must. 180 minutes of pure magic....

I have to say, right away, that I fell in love with James Christnensen's book before I even heard about the movie. I was nine when I got the book, and even now, five years later, I am still entralled by it. If you liked this film, the book you will adore. It's the most beautiful (the gorgeous illustrations) and lyrical (the story is just the right level: easy enough for young readers, touching and with deep messages for older readers) thing I have ever set eyes upon.
The full-length version, that usually takes four hours, is great. (Although there were many things that were cut out of the TV broadcast, such as the scene of the Sphinx in the ship.) The trolls were my least favorite part of the movie, because in the book they were just stupid creatures who didn't really have a reason to go after the Aislings, it was just their nature. The really long and annoying stomping and chanting by the lava stream-thing is totally unneccessary and boring. Another thing I didn't like were Oberon's and Titania's costumes and make-up. Oberan looks like a dog, and Titania looks like a mermaid/vampire. I liked the way they were depicted in the book: more tradiional, and human-like enough they didn't seem kooky. Other than those aspects, this did justice to the book. I adored (read: I think Sebastion is hot) the love subplot with Miranda and Sebastion, it was so awesome to see her just run up to him and kiss him. I wish we could have seen all the creatures that worked on the ship in the book, but this is a TV movie, they already did a good job on design anyway. This film has GREAT acting, even the actors in all the make-up and elaborate costumes. The two Aisling daughters (Chantal Conlin as Cassie and Heather McEwan as Miranda) were terrific, and totally believable.

I'm the kind of girl who like fantasy movies(The Labyrinth, The Dark Crystal, Legend, etc.) , books (Lord of the Rings, The Ancient One, etc.), and games (Final Fantasy)....but when i saw this movie on the odyssey channal, I knew i had to see it again. Being the kind of person that dreams about stuff like fairies, dragons, unicorns, elves, and all of the others every since i can remember, the thought of me have this movie wasn't a want, it was a need. Most ppl bresth air but I fantasy and fictional characters. My favorite character in this movie was Miranda; she was such a real person. As skeptical as she was she finally figured out that all she had to do to get home was to believe in herself. As fictional as this movie is, there are also many thing in the movie that pertain to some of our real-life situations. Most truly great fantasy movie are like that. Take it from the expert. What I love most about fantasy is that it's so much greater than in the real-world, I mean the imagination of its limits reach higher than the sky and the sky is definately not the limit for this movie. If you haven't seen this movie I deeply recommend it.

The 'Voyage of the Unicorn' is the story of the Aisling family - Professor Alan Aisling and his two daughters - the skeptical, bad-tempered Miranda and the dreamy, absent-minded Cassie. The girls weren't always like this though - they were once happy, sweet-natured girls - till their mother dies that is. Now the family live separate lives though they live in the same house - Alan who devotes his time to preaching his 'cresendo vides' (in believing one sees) philosophy at the university, which does not go down well with the Dean; Cassie who looses herself for days in her mother's portfolio and artwork, neglecting school, food and the real world in general; and Miranda, who has lost most of her faith in the human race and leds an unhappy, discontented life. All this is about to change however, when their home is attacked one night by a violent group of trolls, who are out to stop a prophesy concerning the Aisling family from coming true. While Miranda and Mr Aisling attempt to ward them off, Cassie is whisked off by an elf - Sebastian, and a dwarf - Malachi, down to the docks where their ship, The Unicorn waits. Followed closely by Miranda and Professor Aisling, all of them are spirited away to the Landscape of the Imagination on board the magical, beautiful ship which has been specially prepared for them.
It is there that they discover their destiny from King Oberon and Queen Titania on the Isle of Faerie - it has been prophesied that 'a man of learning, and two maidens gentle of spirit' will enter the realm to free the land of the evil scourge of trolls by finding and summoning the great dragon - and at the same time freeing heroes of old.
