Rumpelstiltskin (1995)


Just like the fairy tale, Rumpelstiltskin kidnaps a young woman’s child in the 1400’s, however an old woman places a curse on him and turns him into a small jade figurine only to be awakened in present day Los Angeles. He is unintentionally awakened by a grieving widowed mother but when Uncle Rumpel steals her baby, she stops at nothing to get him back. The concept of the story was great but it suffered from major problems: the humor is off and very tacky, the acting is poor and the entire thing seemed very lackluster. Then again, it is supposed to be funny and b-movie-ish… I think.
