Bad script, a lackluster performance by Franco (but a nice Michelle Williams), and bad / bland visuals. They also managed to (unintentionally) make Mila Kunis look fat and unattractive, which is hard to do.

My daughter wanted to see this movie during spring break and some girl time with mom so we went and to my surprise, one of the best movies I have seen in a while.
Awesome Cinematic and I loved the incorporation of multiple fairy tale segments like the tea cup village and the poison apple. At first I thought it was going to be cheesier but blended well and added originality to an old story.

I agree that Oz had some lovely visuals but that was not enough to carry this movie. The main characters were weak and not very enjoyable. With a PG rating, it was not a kids movie or an adult movie. I think the studio should have committed one way or the other. A little girl sitting by me kept her eyes closed and held her hands over her ears 50 percent of the time. And did anyone else want to fix that piece of hair for Michelle Williams??

Not a huge fan of James Franco, but I did enjoy the movie. My 11 year old daughters enjoyed also, but It's a little intense for younger children. I think the best part of the movie was the humor.

The movie was fairly entertaining. Zach Braff did a really good job as the flying monkey and the china girl was cute. Oz just never awed me. I kept waiting for the moment in the movie where I couldn't think about anything else besides what I was watching and it never happened. There were amusing lines and this story stayed close enough to the original without being a carbon copy of the classic movie. I did see it in 2D and after watching the movie, it is obvious this movie was meant to be seen in 3D.
