I really enjoyed watching. Great story to lead into the Wizard of Oz. Lots of comedy including a little dark humor, but not so intense that kids can't watch.

I rarely get up and leave before a movie is over-it has to be pretty bad and this one qualified. Total waste of time, poor screen play, poor acting yikes...I guess the 10 year old might be able to stomach it I couldn't

What a complete disappointment! Combination of bad acting (not to mention bad casting), less than appealing costumes, weak storyline, & not-so-stellar 'special effects' made this one of the worst movies I've seen in years!
Not sure why this movie even happened. Save your time AND $ for something worth seeing!

This movie dragged. I spent the first half hour wondering when it was going to pick up and another fifteen minutes wondering what other things I could be doing if I wasn't watching this movie. Sometimes I get the feeling Hollywood has decided that if they throw in enough visual effects they can forget about story.
Walked out on this one about 45 minutes in. Decided there were better things to do with my time.

This film surprised me with its depth, deep emotion, great acting, exciting and compelling story. I honestly can say that my eyes "leaked" a few times or yes, I cried. I also exulted in excitement and enchantment and was surprised a few times, even disturbed, because the film does not spare us from the true nature of humans which means you feel the sadness, fear, jealousy, hurt, yet exultatation and excitement of the journey and some special moments of good, hearty, honest laughter. The special effects are dazzllng and totally work to tell the story. Now I know how the wizard of Oz came to be and I am glad for this worthwhile telling of his story, along with some shocking and revelatory moments regarding the 3 witch sisters, too! Go and see it: feel a myriad of emotions, be touched and don't be ashamed to shed a tear or two and be dazzled!
