The Frog Prince is a heartwarming and enchanting musical fantasy film that was released in 1986. This family-friendly movie is based on the classic fairy tale of the same name and features a star-studded cast, including Aileen Quinn, John Paragon, and Helen Hunt. The movie begins with the story of the beautiful Princess Henrietta (Aileen Quinn), who is bored and unhappy with her life in the royal palace. Despite her many admirers, Henrietta longs for a real connection with someone who loves her for who she is, not just for her royal status.

One day, Henrietta meets a charming young man named Prince Derrick (John Paragon), who agrees to show her the beautiful gardens surrounding the palace. However, when the two of them come across a mysterious pond deep in the forest, something truly magical happens.

Prince Derrick is actually under the spell of an evil sorceress (Helen Hunt), who has turned him into a frog. When Henrietta kisses him, he turns back into a prince, but the spell is not completely broken. The sorceress appears and tells Henrietta that if she wants Prince Derrick to stay human permanently, she must perform a series of tasks.

Henrietta is determined to help her new love interest and sets out on a journey to complete the sorceress's tasks. Along the way, she meets a number of colorful characters, including a kind-hearted baker (Ellen Greene), a pair of mischievous elves, and a group of dancing bears.

As the story unfolds, Henrietta learns important lessons about love, kindness, and the true meaning of beauty. With the help of her new friends and her own bravery, she may just be able to break the spell and live happily ever after with her Prince.

One of the highlights of The Frog Prince is undoubtedly the music. The film features a number of catchy and memorable songs, including "Luck of the Irish", "Happy Heart of Paris", and "Fly Away". These tunes are sure to get stuck in your head long after the credits roll.

In addition to the music, The Frog Prince also boasts some impressive special effects, particularly for its time. The scenes where Prince Derrick transforms from a frog into a human (and back again) are particularly well-done and add an extra layer of magic to an already enchanting film.

The cast of The Frog Prince also deserves a special mention. Aileen Quinn is absolutely delightful as Princess Henrietta, bringing a sense of warmth and charm to the screen. John Paragon adds just the right touch of humor as Prince Derrick, while Helen Hunt is suitably wicked as the evil sorceress.

Ultimately, The Frog Prince is a classic fairy tale brought to life on the big screen, filled with magic, music, and heart. It's a perfect movie for families to enjoy together, and a wonderful reminder of the power of love and kindness to conquer even the darkest of spells.

The Frog Prince is a 1986 drama with a runtime of 1 hour and 26 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.2.
