    You got he movie all wrong, its a great fmaily movie, great story, its meant to be a continuation of the Oz story. It is very engaging, the music is great. The whole theatre loved it when I saw it. Think out of the box….be creative, its a great story!

    Your review is horrible

    try tearing the frozen story apart when you start, none of it makes sense…a girl locked up for 14 years, etc…thats how chidlrens movies are , you need suspension of disbelief and dont cast your negativity on others….

      REALLY, I went on OPENING Night, only 8, people in the whole movie theatre, my 9, yo and 8 yo girls are confused and did not enjoy “so much singing” like it was a musical and it cost 70MM to produce but only made 3.4MM opening weekend? Mother Day weekend?

    Dear Sir… This is a kids movie… made in 3D and has a a GREAT message for kids and courage and especially for young ladies. Its so hard to get good messages across these days, this production didn’t sell out, they used the OZ brand to help teach the world lessons about courage and loyalty and not giving up…especially for young women. I hope you feel good about ruining our future. Grow up!

    I don’t think you saw the same movie my family saw… That is the only conclusion I can come up with for such a terrible interpretation of a this exceptional film. My kids loved it! As a strong women and mother you could not be more wrong with just about every comment you have made. It is an uplifting story of friendship and community coming together to save oz and Kansas. Maybe you should learn a little something from the movie. The animation was beautifully done. The music had my daughter on her feet dancing. You couldn’t ask for more!

    I think this is crazy how so many critics have put down this movie and everyone who went to see it with their children, including myself, have given it praise. It strikes me funny how there is such a big discrepancy between the critics and the viewing audience. I took a 4 year old and 6 year old to see this movie and they loved it.

    Amazing how all these people who never showed up here (or over at PAD’s page) are suddenly here.

    Sock Puppets, HO!
