This feature film, "A Modern Twain Story: "The Prince and the Pauper"
(2007) stars the highly popular with pre-teens Sprouse twins, it went
Updates of classic literature like this have become relatively common;
"Emma" is adapted as "Clueless", "Othello" as "O", "Pygmalion" becomes
''She's All That'', Shakespeare's "Taming of the Shrew" becomes "10
Things I Hate About You". "A Modern Twain Story: "The Prince and the
Pauper" is a little more direct with its title, probably because so
little of Twain's original story was incorporated into the movie that
the producers felt they needed to alert the viewer that the classical
connection was intentional. The original was set in 1547 and tells the
story of two young boys who are identical in appearance: Tom Canty, a
pauper who lives with his abusive father, and Prince Edward, son of
Henry VIII of England.
If you are unfamiliar with Disney Channel superstars Cole and Dylan
Sprouse (best known for "The Suite Life of Zack and Cody" and its
nautical spin-off) they are height challenged twin boys who seem like
regular guys. Before you start thinking twin Gary Colemans, it is not
that bad although their routines may have you thinking back to Arnold's
zany antics on "Different Strokes".
The modern version of the "Prince and the Pauper" story utilizes
original character names as Tom Canty (Dylan Sprouse) dreams of being
an actor, but with both his parents dead he is being groomed to take
over his grandfather's (played by Ed Lauter-basically his angry father
role from "Girls Just Want to Have Fun") small landscaping company.
Meanwhile, Eddie Tudor (Cole Sprouse) is a burnt out child star making
his latest box-office blockbuster in a Palm Beach movie studio near
Tom's house. Poor Eddie is neither happy nor particularly likable. One
day Tom sneaks onto the Hollywood lot and the boys meet. You have to
suspend disbelief here as they seem a bit under whelmed by the fact
that they look exactly alike; the same goes for the inability of Tom's
schoolmates and neighbors to notice his uncanny resemblance to a
certain mega-star. The first thirty minutes of the film is pretty lame
and it doesn't really start to engage you until the twins switch
Dylan and Cole are not exactly brimming over with acting for the camera
skills and the script could use a lot of work. In fact the scene in
which Cole is doing some imitations for his costar's amusement is so
unintentionally bad that I actually felt embarrassed for the poor guy.
And in general the weaker scenes are those involving just the twins.
But the basic premise is solid and there are some good supporting
performances from Lauter, Sally Kellerman, and Vincent Spano (as
Miles). You can see the ending coming but the "grass is always greener"
theme is nicely showcased (insert 1987's "Overboard" here).
Kay Panabaker is featured on the promotional material but is virtually
absent from the film. Buyers of the DVD will at least see more of her
as she gets considerable screen time in the behind the scenes special
Anyone interested in a good adaptation of Twain's book should seek out
the hard-to-find three-part "Disneyland" production broadcast in March
1962 ("The Pauper King", "The Merciful Law of the King", "Long Live the
Rightful King") in which Guy ("Zorro" and "Lost in Space") Williams
played the Miles Hendon part. With a 150 minute running length it had
time to do justice to the story.
Then again, what do I know? I'm only a child.
