Although not accurate to the book, this adventure manages to convey something of what England could be like at the time of King Henry the eighth whilst remaining lighthearted entertainment. Some of the acting loses something in the translation (this was filmed with some Eastern European actors who were dubbed), the whimsy of Aidan Quinn and the obvious enthusiasm and relish shown by Jonathan and Robert Timmins are infectious. Let them sweep you along!

Really enjoyed this version of one of my favourite novels by Mark Twain which I read over and over again when I was a child.

The only negative remark I'd make is that oddly enough, the seller fails to inform this DVD has no subtitles at all: not even in English...I'm hearing-impaired and have missed out on a lot...I'll now have to try and find another version with subtitles so I can share it with other deaf friends.

My five year old son loved this film with its sumptuous sets and costumes and great acting. It's a bit gritty in places with a few prison scenes and a burning at the stake in the background of one scene (not too graphic, more implied than anything).

However, it has uplifting moments, goodies, baddies and a few humorous touches. It certainly got my son asking more questions about history, even if he did think the REAL Henry VIII was in this film!

This DVD is very good value as well, I would recommend this. By the way, it wasn't made in 1937! I'm not sure why that date is in the description, I think it's more like 2001.

I once saw a remake of the prince and the pauper on Channel five when I was a kid and I loved it. It's a shame that they haven't made that one into a film. As for this one, it's not the best version I've seen but it's ok.
