New York Daily News -
While it won't rival the Harry Potter movies as a cultural milestone, the luminous, irresistible Stardust is no less industrious at scavenging myths and legends and making something altogether new from the familiar pickings.
Entertainment Weekly -
It's the closest the movies have come in a while to the nudgy, knowing fairy-tale enchantment of "The Princess Bride."
San Francisco Chronicle -
Unlike "Pirates," Stardust is anything but a wretched mess. It's a charming and smartly plotted fantasy.
USA Today -
Stardust lights up the screen with a splendid tale of heroism and romance.
The passage from this world to the fantasy kingdom of Stormhold is through a breach in a wall beside an English village. In the 1800s, a boy becomes a man when he ventures through the breech in pursuit of a fallen star, to prove his love for the village beauty. The star is no lump of rock, it's a maiden, Yvaine. Tristan, the youth, is not the only one looking for her: three witches, led by Lamia, want her heart to make them young; and, the sons of the dead king of Stormhold want her because she holds a ruby that will give one of them title to the throne. Assisting Tristan are his mother, the victim of a spell, and a transvestite pirate of the skies. Will Tristan win his true love?
