Penelope Wilhern is born to wealthy socialites. She is afflicted by the Wilhern spell that can only be broken when she finds love. Hidden away in her family's estate, the lonely girl meets a string of suitors in her parent's futile attempt to break the curse. Each eligible bachelor is enamored with Penelope and her sizable dowry, but only until her curse is revealed. Lemon, a mischievous and eager tabloid reporter, wants a photograph of the mysterious Penelope and hires Max to pose as a prospective suitor to get the shot. The handsome down-on-his luck gambler finds himself falling for Penelope. He decides to disappear so he will not disappoint her or to expose his surreptitious ways. Fed up by this latest betrayal and determined to live life on her own terms, Penelope breaks free from her family and ventures into the world alone. She finds adventure and meets Annie, her first friend, and becomes the person she was meant to be.

Not a bad movie, good for kids who would be interested in a fairy-type drama. I found it was pretty slow and boring at times. Very predictable.

Penelope is a great movie for the whole family to enjoy.

This is a light, fun movie that would be perfect for adults and kids to enjoy together. The cinematography and costuming is highly stylized with vibrant colors, and there are some valuable lessons learned on friendship, family, and being true to one's self.

one of the best movies ever. It's so inspirational. Not to mention the acting is on par.

so thrilling

I really enjoyed the moral of this movie. I will admit when I first saw it on the shelf I wasn't too sure I wanted to watch it. Especially being such a movie fanatic. However seeing how she learned to love and accept herself was a very powerful message. I think it would be great for girls that are struggling with self acceptance. Definitely a good family movie as well as personal movie.

kind of disappointed

It was O.K for a home TV movie. I was entertained and interesting. But it was NOT worth the long library wait or the price to rent from a Red Box. "I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.”

This movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. “Not too bad---good performance”. "I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.”

What a delight! And that is because the actors (with the exception of Catherine Harris, who didn't seem at her best) bumped everything up a notch. Definitely worth an hour & half of my time.
