  • This twisty fairy-tale mash-up shows an appreciation for the virtues of old-fashioned storytelling, along with a welcome dash of subversive wit. It benefits from respect for the source material, enticing production values and a populous gallery of sharp character portraits from a delightful cast. show more

  • Marshall deserves credit for knowing how to shoot and cut (alongside editor Wyatt Smith, “Thor: The Dark World”) a musical number, and his work here ranks much closer to his success with “Chicago” than to his dismal “Nine.” show more

  • Another example of concept over coherence, but the entertainment value is considerable. show more

    I wish--I wish----I wish I could find out when and where it was playing.It is my favorite play and I have planned Christmas day around it with my children and grand-children.None of the theaters here in Portland Maine know if they are going to show it--and it is 10 days before Christmas.

    A review of the concept rather than the movie--seems like a bad miscalculation to produce a movie that will scare away half your audience. By the look of it my kids would not enjoy seeing it and we'll turn our attention elsewhere.
