critics are correct: acting is mediocre, but still wildly entertaining!

James Franco didn't capture the character of Oz correctly. The witches were also second rate in their acting. However, as an overall, performance, I was on the edge of my seat. I laughed, jumped up and felt an honest sense of wonderment. So, I ask you, when was the last time you could say that about a movie? NOT FOR YOUNGE KIDS!!!!!!! Only for the young kid inside you!

Don't waste your money

If you're interested in seeing James Franco and Mila Kunis looking overly astonished at a bunch of obvious green-screen/CGI effects, I guess this wouldn't be a total waste of your time. Rachel Weisz looked like a scared child floundering in front of a green screen pretending to fly. Also, why on Earth is Zach Braff allowed to play in movies? I spent the whole movie wondering how much jail time I could possibly get for choking him out.

The movie is very entertaining, the 2 hours plus went very quickly. The 3D movies are alot of fun and this is a great story about the Wizard. Great movie for the kids who are 7 and above. Not so much for the pre school group.

Saw this movie in IMAX 3-D. Sound and visual special effects were nothing less than amazing. Storyline is cute, but could have been about 20min shorter. I want my own "Finley" :)

A visual delight for the kid in all of us!

I didn't go into this movie with high expectations but it did look visually outstanding and that it was! This is probably one of the best looking movies i've ever seen visually but other than that this movie was kind of just a decent movie though there was some really amazing parts. For example the part where he first gets to oz it's like a 3D ride which was cool and i liked the monkey in the movie and i really really liked rachel weisz she was awesome. I love james franco and i hate to say this but i've seen him in a lot of other things and they were all better then him as oscar diggs i mean he wasn't bad but it looked like he wasn't trying but thats just my opinion. I know this review came off as negative but after all my remarks i actually enjoyed this movie as a visual delight and would suggest it for a family movie night. Go see it in IMAX 3D it'll make it that more outstanding to look at! 7/10
