Movie Reviews

G. Hafsteinsdottir | Reykjavik, Iceland | 01/15/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This movie was not what I thought it would be. Its quite good. Danny Kaye his here in his older years and everything you see in this movie is something that you have seen before. He plays 2 or more characters and pulls it off very well. The movie is kinda silly because it's on stage and is more for children than for grown ups. It just shows the classic tale of Pinocchio, how he becomes a real life boy and learns about life. This movie is worth buying and should be in every home, where a Danny Kaye fan is."
Pinocchio Needs More Than A Nose Job

"To make the excuse for the low-budget sets and special effects, this production decides to frame a story within a story by means of a traveling "third-rate" theatre company performing the play "Pinocchio." The TV video production would have been much better off sticking to the story of "Pinocchio" and giving up the ridiculous idea of the traveling theatre company sub-plot. By the TV production calling the theatre company "third-rate" does that mean that think that their own TV production is "third-rate"? Danny Kaye as Gepetto was anything but third rate! He knows how to deliver touching songs like "I'm Talking To Myself" composed by Billy Barnes. I believe that children would have understood and enjoyed the story more if they would have cast a child in the role of Pinocchio. Though Sandy Duncun did a great job, nothing can replace the magic of a real child. Taking in the whole TV production, I feel that "Pinocchio" is worth watching, though it would have looked better if only the fairy could have helped to edit the script."
