The remnants of humanity work to survive in a ruined world.

Gritty and good. It's got a lot of bullshit in it though, so you really have to turn your brain off.

I had someone point out this was supposed to have comedy, but it's so thin I had no idea.

A lovestruck girl makes a wish to enter into the world of a prince.

I'm forced to mark this as disliked if only for the fact that many many avoidable movie-quality mistakes were made: From dimness to grimness, this movie was not youth-friendly in the least.
