Movie Reviews

Not the same old story...
A. L. Franklin | Wisconsin Rapids, WI USA | 08/22/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"With movies and books constantly having regurgitated story lines and predictable characters, this one is a refreshing difference. For those who berate this movie because it has flagrant disregard to the original story, I remind you of what Disney has done (and continues to do) to classic stories, such as "The Little Mermaid" and "Aladdin." Those movies are great because they have modern experiences put in so that children of today can relate. "Hansel and Gretel" does the same thing. What results is a hilarious, visually-stimulating, modern retelling of a story we have all grown to memorize, with an all-star cast. The movie is very satirical, that is why sometimes it seems "overdone," but over-all it's a great movie for children of all ages (especially the parents). Laughs and chills abound with this fairytale!"
Great for all ages

"Okay, I passed on this one for a while, until I got to see a few clips. All the actors are great and it has just the right touch of satire and unexpected twists to keep your interest.

Delta Burke is perfect. Taylor Momsen shines.

My favorite line of the whole movie--"I see fairytale people" ---delivered by Dakota Fanning--always a great actress in everything she's in.

Highly recommended for your DVD library.

"This is a great satire on the traditional version of Hansel and Gretel! My grandson and I thoroughly enjoyed viewing this video together. He enjoyed the unique characters and I enjoyed the subtle humor of the dialogue. Delta Burke was the perfect evil step-mother and what a witch Vanessa Redgrave made! The closing line delivered by Delta Burke was priceless. All the actors did a fantastic job in making this version of Hansel and Gretel a movie to add to your collection."
Perfect for Halloween!

"My husband and I watched it with our 6 and 3 year old. We ALL thought this movie was hilarious! Keep in mind though that it is silly and pretty corny but I think that's what makes it so funny. Beware there are is lot of gaseous humor. :) My kids watched this about four times in two days! It has the classic Hansel and Gretel story with a bit of a Halloween touch. We all thought it was great and we will definatly be adding this to our collection."
