Some reviewers said they were disappointed because of "adult humor". Besides the comment about the sock being on the door (which wasn't that bad because there was nothing really going on), there wasn't really any adult humor that I noticed.
Was it as good as the original? Let's get serious! The Wizard of Oz is a classic and no one should be expecting this movie to compare to it. It was however, a very enjoyable movie to watch. My children loved the monkey, the munchkin named Nook, and the china doll characters. They were the real comedy in the movie.
It might not be the reincarnation of the Wizard of Oz, but it was a fun night out. I will be buying the movie on Dvd so I can watch it with my family again.

First of all, this is not a remake of the classic movie, it is a different part of the story. It is magical, and fun and colorful and yes, over-acted, but it works for the most part. My boys, ages 12 and 10 really liked it.

The beginning was pretty drawn out and very boring. The story was good but it was slow in some parts. I wouldn't see it again...didn't blow my hair back.

Ok, I wasn't the old version remake but I liked it a lot! I lived the china doll and the friendly monkey. The Glenda Good witch didn't seem to be the best actress but of spite of that I really liked the movie! My little girl lived it. Scary enough to be exciting for her and not scary enough to give her nightmares. I would even see it twice!! Love it love it!!!

It was good, the special effects were great, was disappointed in the story line and the witches. Mila just did not have it to be a witch nice or not. And Glinda was not elegant as you would have thought she would be. LOVED the China Doll girl...but could have waited for the dvd.
