* FakeShemp: The inn scene was particularly tricky to shoot, as not all the actors were available at the one time. So there was heavy use of this technique to give the impression that Lamia, Tristen, Yvaine, Primus, Billy and Bernard are all in the scene together.

''Stardust'' is a 2007 film adaptation of Creator/NeilGaiman's book [[Literature/{{Stardust}} of the same name]]. While certain liberties were taken, it remains a relatively faithful adaptation. When a star falls from the sky, Tristan Thorn sets out to find a fallen star for Victoria the girl he's in love with, only to find that the "star" is a human woman named Yvaine... and that three evil witches want to capture her. Yvaine is also being chased by heirs to the throne of the magical kingdom of Stormhold who seek Yvaine's ruby necklace.

With an AllStarCast comprised of Creator/CharlieCox, Creator/ClaireDanes, Creator/RobertDeNiro, Creator/MichellePfeiffer, and Creator/MarkStrong, the film is said to remind viewers of ''Film/ThePrincessBride''. Although the movie contains a different ending from the book, it's successful at playing straight many of the often clichéd fantasy elements in an intelligent and entertaining way.

** The children of the Lord of Stormhold, Primus, Secundus, ... [[NumericalThemeNaming and so on]]. Their [[OutnumberedSibling only]] sister Una counts as well, "Una" meaning "single" or "one."

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationNameChange:
** Tristan Thorn was Tristran Thorn in the book. The director has said that this was initially a typo that they decided to run with.
** Captain Shakespeare of the ''Caspertine''; in the book, the ship Tristran and Yvaine travel on is the ''Perdita'', and its captain is named Alberic. They were renamed to acknowledge that the captain in the film is effectively a new character, with a different personality and backstory and a larger role in the plot.

* SpottingTheThread: Septimus suspects that his soothsayer is not being honest, in spite of the guy's claims that he's following what his runes tell him. Septimus promptly asks the soothsayer some questions about himself that he knows are true. He sees that the runes land with the symbols facing up if the answer is yes. Then he asks if begging or pleading has ever convinced him to spare a traitor, something he knows is ''not'' true. This causes him to notice that the runes land with the symbols facing down if the answer is "no". Septimus then has the soothsayer throw the runes as high as he can. While they're still in the air, he asks, "[[WhamLine Do you work for my brother]]?" [[OhCrap The soothsayer's face turns to shock as the runes land with the symbols facing up]]. When they stop moving, Septimus fatally stabs his treacherous soothsayer through the heart.

* ManIFeelLikeAWoman: Bernard checks him/herself out after Lamia transforms him into a girl. Though his sex is changed, Lamia didn't do as good a job with transforming his voice, so he replies with a masculine voice when he tries to serve poisoned wine to Tristan in the stable.

He sees that if the answer is "no," the runes land with the symbols facing down. Now that he knows what means "no" and "yes", Septimus has the soothsayer throw the runes high.

** Lamia stops by a goatherd's hut and offers to buy his goat. When Bernard points out that one goat isn't strong enough to pull her cart, she quips, "Hmm. You're quite right," [[BalefulPolymorph turn Bernard into another goat]] and takes them both. The hapless goatherd gets dragged along by the villains for most of the rest of the film.
