I would also accuse this film of misandry as well.  All of the male characters were portrayed as stupid, incompetent, violent, and drunk.  One thing I did like about the movie, however, is that the female lead's mother is actually still alive.  Most fairy tale style movies for girls almost always have a dead mother.  And I will be honest and say that I do not think I have ever seen a movie for girls like this where a mother/daughter relationship was the HEART of the story.  This movie definitely needed some refinement, but I think it could have been saved with just a few changes.  I appreciate that the makers tried to think outside the box a little bit, but they ultimately failed in the execution, because, as you say, they took no risks.
