Tom Nightingale (Maxwell Caulfield), a writer of children's books, falls prey to a serious case of writer's block, after the loss of his wife. He now spends his time reading fairy stories to his young daughter, Melissa.

But they are not alone, for each night a real fairy, Crystal, listens in on the stories. Meanwhile, Tom's pet dog is keeping an eye on Crystal and one night decides to chase her. Crystal collides with a tree and is knocked out. She is suddenly transformed into human form and subsequently suffers amnesia.

Tom finds crystal and eventually falls in love with her, much to the disappointment and disapproval of Melissa's teacher, Miss Martinet (Mia Sara). The only trouble is Crystal has to return to Fairyland before The Collector (Jeff Fahey) can capture her and send her to the dark world. And she only has six days!

With only the help of two clumsy midget detectives, Oddkin and Bodkin, can Tom find the spell that will save Crystal?

Dazzle is an enchanting film, suitable for all the family, but especially for children. It is a tale of courage and love, spiced with a sprinkling of humour and a dash of madness. The cast put in good performances all round, and there are some dazzling special effects.

A real little girl's film centred on a fairy, 'Crystal' who accidentally comes into the lives of the Nightingale family. My 6 year old daughter loves it - there's everything she wants in the story, fairies, make believe, and a little girl character she can relate to. Although there is a baddie 'The Collector', he's not too scary and this is generally a lightweight, easy viewing video.
It's not that great for parents, there's not too much plot and it's a bit too lightweight but the Dad is very good looking!

I've just watched this with my daughter and was pleasantly surprised. The cover is appalling and enough to put anyone off, but the description on the back is better.

Dazzle has everything you need for a family film - drama, comedy, a baddie, and a fast moving plot. Odkin and Bodkin the special agent garden gnomes add a bit of silliness (we especially liked their ballet) and Maxwell Caulfield provides the eye candy.

This is a far, far better film than it looks from the cover and I'd recommend it.

I've just tried to watch this with my 9 and 12 year old girls. It has to be by far the worst children's film I've seen. A cringeworthy script and ridiculous characters, it can only have been made for a five to six year old audience. Most children's films have something to enjoy in them for adults. Not this one...
