Movie Reviews

A Modern Twist to an Classic Tale
Paige Turner | Hawaii | 12/07/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is an adorable little movie. It is an updated version of "The Nutcracker", with assorted colorful characters and a Clara with 'Tude. I especially adored her; she was quite the scene stealer, if a cartoon character could possibly do that. Of course Phyllis Diller as the Fairy was a scream as well. It is a refreshing take on a classic fairy tale, and one that children can relate to. The computer-generated graphics are amazing.
This is fun family fare for the holidays. I recorded it on VHS when it played on Primetime TV, so I'm glad the DVD is out. Even adults will find it entertaining and amusing. (...)."
My son LOVES this movie!
Marissa C. Edwards | Nashville, TN | 01/16/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"If this was a movie meant for me, I wouldn't be able to rate it very high. But my son has been watching it for over 2 years now. He doesn't just reserve it for the holidays, either. Every few months, he drags it out and watches it a bunch. In fact, it's mid-January now, and he's still watching it 2 or 3 times a day some days.
I really don't like it that much. It's certainly no "Nemo!" The music is a bit too gospel for me, and the story and animation are not spectacular. However, it has it's moments.
The most important thing is that, out of all the Christmas movies we have, my son loves this one the best. His entertainment is the sole reason I bought the movie, so I have to give it two thumbs up. Besides, anything that brings my son so much joy has a special place in my heart.
The following is my son's own review: "The nuts are funny, the Mouse King dances with one of his army men, and some little red fruits have gas and stink up the whole place and make their own men and a lot of black-eyed peas have to go to the hospital."
And there you have it!"
This movie is for kids

"I'd just like to say that while I didn't think this movie rated very high, my daughter, who saw it the first time when she was 7 1/2 is crazy about this movie and since that who I bought it for, I am happy she likes it!"
A twist of muppets and cartoons characters
Marissa C. Edwards | 04/26/2002
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This movie look interesting in it preview, however it did not hold my 3 year old attention. I thought he would like it because it was full of color and great singing. What really turn him off is that he did not like the interruption of the cartoon character mix with the muppets. He perfer just the muppets characters."
