Dorothy and her friends are the only ones who can stop the evil Wicked Witch of the West and her plans for global domination. Also starring Billy Boyd, Sean Astin, Ethan Embry, Mia Sara, Lance Henriksen, Christopher Lloyd.
To be fair, I never expected this movie to be GOOD in the first place. However, as low as my expectations were, this was by far worse. It's way too long, pacing and plot issues plague the movie, and the special effects are truly horrendous. There were CG animated (poorly) parts that didnt even require animation. Also, there are multiple jokes in the movie that are innapropriate for children but it certainly isn't made for intelligent adults. Don't waste your money on this nonsense. Your children will be bored and you will regret every penny.
Ok so me and my daughter audery went to the local blockbuster to pick a movie for the ride to my Grandmothers house so she picked this one but I was going with my cousins so they drove so I could sit with audery and after a little bit into the movie I think I was more interested then she was! Any way great movie for everyone in the family
Dorothy (Paulie Rojas) sucked!
The premise and storyline were wonderful. I agree with other reviewers that some of the CGI was flawed. However, I could have looked past what amounted to minor CGI flaws and called this movie a little Gem, if only they had cast a Dorothy (other than Paulie Rojas) that could have carried the movie. Anyone would have been a better choice than this girl; her overly saccharine portrayal comes off as wooden, false and idiotic. A cardboard cut-out Dorothy would have served the otherwise brilliant casting much better! I loved the storyline, and the again otherwise wonderful cast, but I counted the seconds I was wasting every time Paulie Rojas was on screen as I sat wishing for a better Dorothy. I also plotted who would have made a better Dorothy; Zooey Deschanel, or Amanda Seyfried, would have made decent Dorothy's, even Lacey Chabert, or a little too old by traditional standards Jennifer Love Hewitt, or even a little too hot Megan Fox could have played this better, heck even Miley Cyrus would have done a better job, and that's saying something!!!! In short, the story is worth watching, but unfortunately the lead actress is not worth the money it costs to rent this flick.
