    Princess Caraboo
Her Royal Majesty - Phoebe Cates
  • The Crown Jewel of any Phoebe Cates Collection

    Virtually all Phoebe Cates fans agree that this is Phoebe's finest performance. And it is a simply excellent movie. Customers at Amazon.com have given this movie 5 Stars.

    The review by Doug Thomas at Amazon.com states

      This gentle "true" fairy tale succeeds on nearly every level, becoming an intelligent handling of a tabloid story. In 1817 a young foreign drifter (Phoebe Cates, never better) sets a small portion of England buzzing that she is a royal princess from an uncharted land. This feels like a magical movie with slightly overcooked characters, such as Kevin Kline's Greek butler. The supporting cast is older than in most movies of this type--no cute actors, we have performers with chiseled features and gruff voices. Director Michael Austin's decision to approach this as a true story keeps things firmly grounded so the eccentrics are not overplayed. Beautifully filmed by the great Freddie Francis (Glory) and featuring a surprisingly rich cast (Stephen Rea, Wendy Hughes, Jim Broadbent, and John Lithgow), this is simply the best family movie since The Secret Garden.

  •     The Anniversary Party
    The Anniversary Party
  • The Anniversary Party

    Phoebe Cates has emerged from retirement more beautiful and more talented (if that's possible) than ever as she joins husband Kevin Kline in an unusual movie created by co-stars Jennifer Jason Leigh and Alan Cumming.

      It's easy to be skeptical when a couple of well-connected actors throw a script together, start shooting their fabulous friends with digital cameras, and call it a movie. But Jennifer Jason Leigh and Alan Cumming, who bonded in Cabaret on Broadway, have crafted a rough little gem in The Anniversary Party. Influenced by Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? and The Player, it's a devastating portrait of a fragile marriage and a perceptive look at life in Hollywood. The characters are based--to an eerie degree--on their Hollywood counterparts: Kevin Kline and Phoebe Cates are a Shakespeare-quoting actor and his retired actress wife; Gwyneth Paltrow is a rising young starlet; etc. Leigh is an actress on the way down, and Cumming, a best-selling author and up-and-coming director, is the sexually ambiguous husband with whom she has recently reconciled. The titular party is to celebrate their sixth anniversary, and revelations about the characters accumulate as the evening progresses from a tense session of charades to an ecstasy-pill-fueled blowout by the pool.

    5 StarsA music fan from California , wrote on August 21, 1999: "Ohmigod!! This has got to be the best soundtrack ever. Normally soundtracks only have a few good songs, but this one all the songs are good. If you like 80's music i highly recommend this soundtrack for you. It's awesome, especially, "Somebody's Baby" and "Raised on the Radio." This CD is the best!!!
    The Greatest Soundtrack Ever!!!
    You'll find YOURSELF in Paradise!
  • You'll Find Yourself in Paradise!

    Phoebe finds herself in Paradise and you will too when you view this highly praised video. The "waterfall sequence" is famous on and off the Internet.
      bullfinch101 wrote in an Amazon review on June 22, 2002:
      "Phoebe Cates IS GORGEOUS...RADIANT...ANGELIC!! The details of how these 2 got stranded, then escaped from the slave trader to get back to civilization are of secondary importance. Phoebe is the entire movie. Without her, this is an unremakable retread of "The Blue Lagoon". But just as she makes being stranded on a desert oasis not merely bearable, but highly desireable, so she raises this otherwise pedestrian effort to a true aesthetic experience. The stoyline gets 2 stars, but Phoebe gets 5 stars for the most breathtaking debut in movie history."

  •     SHAG ~ The Movie
    Her Royal Majesty - Phoebe Cates
  • Phoebe was SHAGGING long before Austin Powers

    Southern belle high-school grad Cates is about to get married, so her three girlfriends decide to take her on a ``last fling'' weekend to Myrtle Beach. This movie was unavailable for a long time on video because of a dispute over royalty rights on certain soundtrack songs. When this movie was finally released on video, the soundtrack was changed!! But Phoebe is UNCHANGED and as beautiful and desirable as ever!

    This has become a huge cult movie and it is generally considered a "chick" movie. It is very rare for this to happen. Black market copies of the original with the original soundtrack often go for very high prices - even if they're of poor quality!! But every viewer also recommends the "revised edition" available here from the WIZARD, fkap and Amazon.com. At $9.94 it is very affordable. For more information, or to order, just click on the Video box at left.

  •     Drop Dead Fred
    Drop Dead Beautiful
  • Phoebe Becomes the PRIME ATTRACTION

    By 1991 Phoebe's career and her talent had grown to the point she was ready to carry the lead in a major motion picture. And carry it she does. The reviews of Phoebe were glowing, even as the same reviewers panned the movie itself. But take it from the WIZARD, fkap, the reviewers just "didn't get it." Rik Mayall, Phoebe's co-star is a strange comedic talent, with a huge following in England. Here he turned off many critics. But the movie is a true cult hit and every Phoebe fan should see it and own it. Amazon.com has this video for just $9.98. Get more information or order it by clicking on the Video box on the left.

  •     Gremlins
    Take a bite out of Phoebe
  • All he wanted was to take a bite out of Phoebe...

    Director Joe Dante has created a comic horror masterpiece. Leonard Maltin says "A teenager's unusual new pet spawns a legion of vicious, violent monsters who turn a picture-postcard town into a living hell. This comic nightmare is a cross between Capra's IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE and THE BLOB; full of film-buff in-jokes... Cameos range from animator Chuck Jones to Robby the Robot--but you have to look fast for executive producer Steven Spielberg."

    Phoebe has one of the funniest sequences in the movie with her "it happened on Christmas" monologue. the WIZARD, fkap is pleased to offer you the Gremlins VHS video for just $13.99 in association with Amazon.com. Just click on the Video box at left to order the VHS edition.

  • Own a Digital Phoebe
        Gremlins 2 - The New Batch
    If we could just clone Phoebe
  • Phoebe and the Gremlins: Over the Top!!

    Director Joe Dante has created a movie that is totally out of control. As our story unfolds Phoebe Cates is working in an ultramodern skyscraper owned by a Donald Trump clone. Phoebe's furry little Gremlin buddy is captured by a mad scientist. What follows is a non-stop send-up of nearly every movie ever made. No longer a horror movie, the sequel is more inventive than the original. Nothing is sacred in Joe Dante's eyes. Phoebe even does a send-up of her own role in the first Gremlins.

  •     Heart of Dixie
    Phoebe Cates Stars in the Heart of Dixie
  • Phoebe at the very "Heart of Dixie"

    THE HEART OF DIXIE is not so much about the fight for racial equality as itis about the awakening of a new social consciousness in the South. The acting is solid and the film gives a glimpse of 1950's segregation and the lingering rigid social order of the Old South. Phoebe Cates is extremely appealing as the outspoken, optimistic, free-spirited rebel Aiken Reed. She serves primarily as the symbol of a new southern womanhood, eager to throw off the societal mores that have held her back and yearning to come into her own. THE HEART OF DIXIE is an earnest film that that bears viewing.

  •     Bright Lights, Big City

  • Phoebe and Michael J. Fox's descent into Hell

    Phoebe Cates plays Michael J. Fox's model/wife in this big screen adaptation of the acclaimed Jay McInerney novel. Fox's performance gained fine reviews, but the audience never accepted him in this dramatic role. Phoebe, however, was perfect as a Midwestern girl who becomes the "new face" in the world of New York modeling. As her fame quickly eclipses his, he drifts into an abyss of drugs and alcohol. This movie, made in 1988, showed the early promise Phoebe was to later fulfill in "Princess Caraboo."
