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.

We really loved the film and it was clear the rest of the audience did also. Lots of cheering and oohs and ahas. The colors will brilliant and the ending was great.

I set up an account just so I could warn you about this movie! It looked good on the previews, but we only stayed 40 minutes then had to walk out due to the really terrible acting. Maybe it gets better after the first 40 minutes... but that seems doubtful to me. If you have very little kids who dont mind terrible acting, maybe it's ok. But if have any desire to avoid really terrible acting.... here's a movie to avoid. Did I mention terrible acting?

I went into this movie with low expectations but left with a good impression. The environment of Oz was executed wonderfully. The set, backgrounds, CGI, and magical world of Oz over rides the character aspect of the story. Hence, the characters are difficult to hate or love, but rather just exercise indifference. The actors are talented, I just think the environment over powers the acting but that said, I was happy and impressed with the production. It starts off very differently and it is innovative in presenting a magical world. Though there are many nay sayers, this movie is not as bad as some say. Kids loved it, they were laughing and talking through out the film, asking questions. It sets the stage for The Wizard of Oz (which I hope Disney is working on a remake), and it was an over top, theatrical, film. I'd say, if you have to, go see it. It's not as bad as everyone says.

The name of my salon is Wicked so I am a real fan! But this movie was terrible. Not even worth a Redbox rental. Could have been a great movie but they blew it.
