About the Movie

Into the Woods is a modern twist on the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales, intertwining the plots of a few choice stories and exploring the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests. This humorous and heartfelt musical follows the classic tales of Cinderella (Anna Kendrick), Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford), Jack and the Beanstalk (Daniel Huttlestone), and Rapunzel (MacKenzie Mauzy)—all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife (James Corden and Emily Blunt), their wish to begin a family, and their interaction with the witch (Meryl Streep) who has put a curse on them. Rob Marshall, the talented filmmaker behind the Academy Award®-winning musical “Chicago” and Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” helms the film, which is based on the Tony®-winning original musical by James Lapine, who also penned the screenplay, and legendary composer Stephen Sondheim, who provides the music and lyrics.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: "Into the Woods," the splendid Disney screen adaptation of the Stephen Sondheim-James Lapine musical, infuses new vitality into the tired marketing concept of entertainment for "children of all ages." – Stephen Holden, New York Times, Dec 24, 2014

Fresh: Marshall's film captures enough of the emotions that course through this sneaky fairy tale about childish things like love, sex, grief, insecurity, abandonment, and forbearance. – Ty Burr, Boston Globe, Dec 26, 2014

Rotten: With the exception of Meryl Streep (as the Witch) and James Corden (as the Baker), the cast is bland, and the bombastic orchestrations tend to steamroll the nuances of Sondheim's score. – Ben Sachs, Chicago Reader, Jan 14, 2015

Fresh: A jolly mash-up of symbol-laden, signature once-upon-a-time tales about lust, envy, greed, and misguided pursuits of happiness. – Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer, Dec 25, 2014

Know what you're talking about before you comment

This is in reply to Fundaystonehad's comment. This movie isn't necessarily for little kids. And as for the toe slicing and getting your eyes pecked out by birds, they are staying true to the original Grimm brothers story of Cinderella. And with Cinderella's prince cheating on her and the baker's wife cheating on the baker, this wasn't written as a Disney story. It was originally a Broadway musical. Disney cut out a lot from the Broadway version as well. At the end of the Brodway there was a reprise of agony about how the princes were "tired of" their wives, And rapunzel went insane. So Disney made it more child friendly. I'm 11 and I understood all of this.

Beautiful adaptation

For anyone that thinks this is a children's movie just because Disney produced it is a mad person. Cinderella's step sisters did chop off their toe and heal to fit into the slipper in the original tail and Rapunzel's prince had his scared by vines. The original play was meant to make fun of these fact and the entire play is a satire. They did an amazing job bringing the pay to the big screen and all of the "gore" was implied. Maybe review what you are taking your kids to see before negatively reviewing a beautiful movie.

Crap. Just total crap.

The music is...awful. They're singing just to hear themselves. It was grating. I was not impresed by anyone except Meryl Streep and the baker. No one got a happy ending...this movie took away two hours of my life that I can never get back. The bakers wife cheats on her husband with prince charming...what exactly is that teaching kids? Hmmm??? Where exactly did that happen in any of the fairy tales? This movie, simply put, just took a huge dump on my childhood. Shame on Disney for releasing a movie that teaches absolutely no moral values at all. I wouldn't let my kids watch this. Ever. Just a bad, bad movie.
