My kids really wanted to see this movie so I took them during Spring Break. My ten year old really liked it, my sixteen year old said it was OK and I fell asleep. It was not what I expected and I feel that I wasted my money.

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.

Good movie. Got a little hokey at the end. It was entertaining.

Okay, so I grew up on "the wizard of Oz" and have seen the play "Wicked" and felt I would be very critical on this moving.
The moving was great. The story was well told. The acting was fantastic. Mila Kunis KILLED IT by the way! Her acting and transformation to the wicked witch was superb. Visually the moving was beauitful. All around just a great movie.

If I only had three words to say to you if you are on the fence about this movie those words would be: go see it! I actually watched this at a Cinema Cafe (my first time going to one), and though I was very unimpressed with the actual theater, the movie saved the evening. I took my girlfriend on a date night since she's back for spring break and it was a great end to the night. Great story, good acting (smiled so big when I saw Zach Braff from scrubs). Some mild sexual themes, nothing too bad, will go right over any kids' heads.
So if you are in the mood for a good lighthearted film, this is the film for you!
