Book/Novelization: 

Though apparently very different from the book (so my wife tells me, I haven't read it yet), Stardust is a really great romantic fantasy adventure loosely based on the Neil Gaiman novel of the same name. Telling the tale of a certain Tristan Thorn and his week long trek into a hidden inner world for what started out as a quest to obtain a fallen star for the young lady he fancies, it quickly turns into much more, something richer and more meaningful. Along the way Tristan and his companion, Yvaine, encounter lots of unique characters, most notably an evil witch exquisitely played by Michelle Pfeiffer and a pirate / entrepreneur played by Robert De Niro in what is definitely one of the most unusual roles I've seen him in. One of my all-time favorites, and a movie my wife and I re-watch relatively often, we enjoy it that much.
