This is a good movie made off the famous tale. I love the different creative things they did to make the movie even better.

Charming version of old favorite
Beverley Ernst | San Diego, CA | 12/01/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Definitely a keeper in the family movie collection. I had already seen the movie and decided to buy it and so when pucrhasing at Amazon I was so surprised at a few poor reviews listed for this movie that I took time to write. It is a great production of a family favorite depicting old time values and morals while entertaining due to engrossing and almost believable characters of this old family favorite. My 6 and 5 yr old kids were enthralled and describe it as their favorite movie ever. Even Dad stayed awake through the entire movie! It may not work for teenagers but for a relaxing family movie evening, you will not be disappointed and I will keep our copy for ever."
Good movie, but not the same as the animated classic
Sara Swihart | Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA | 01/10/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I asked for this movie in 1996 because I was a HUGE Jonathan Taylor Thomas fan.When I first watched it, I was expecting it to be a lot like the animated Disney version. To a certain extent it is, but there are a lot of scenes in this movie that aren't in the animated version.What I Didn't Like About the Movie: With live action and JTT's likeness as a puppet, I got a "Toystory" / "Who Framed Roger Rabbit Feel". It just didn't look right. This is minor considering the overall quality of the story.I did enjoy this movie. It doesn't have content that you have to worry about little ones seeing. Though it isn't destined to be a Disney classic, this is a good movie for the whole family."
Well made fanatsy film.

"A lonely puppetmaker (Oscar-Winner:Martin Landau in a Impressive Role), who made a Puppet, the shape of a Little Boy. He wishes one night, that his Puppet would become a Real Boy (Voiced by Jonathan Talyor Thomas) and it came true but in the form of a Puppet.Directed by Steve Barron (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Coneheads) made a good entertaining film, based on a novel by Carlo Collod`s Fable. Good Supporting Cast including:Genevieve Bujold, Udo Kier, Bebe Neuwirth and Rob Schnieder. This was a Box Office Disappointment in Theaters but it did better on Video. Walt Disney`s animated version is much better but this is bit different from Disney`s Version. Great Special Effects done by Jim Henson`s Creature Shop. Panavision. Grade:B+."
