It is probably one of the worst musicals I have ever seen (Bare in mind musicals are not my speciality). The only scene I really enjoyed was Michael Jackson has his own song and displays his amazing dance moves. In my opinion, there is not much else to enjoy in this flick. It looks bad, the songs are lame and the whole thing is just boring. Not really worth a look.

Description: Dorothy, a twenty-four-year-old kindergarten teacher born, raised, and still working in Harlem, is celebrating Thanksgiving with her extended family, but she doesn't seem to be thankful for much in life. She lives a self-imposed sheltered life; she is shy and unfulfilled. Things change for her when she is caught in a snowstorm while c ... (more)

Tom Henry's Crap List (27 movies items)

"This really had a lot of potential. The idea is really fantastic and it provides so much material to work with and you could really let your imagination fly. So, what happened? Sidney Lumet as the completely out of place director, Diana Ross looking constipated in probably every scene, set decoration that balances between genius and infernal, phenomenally forgettable music, unbelievably joyless editing and cinematography and a mess of a screenplay written by the man who broke the Bat with his "

"Katsottu 9.7.2012., dvd Michael Jackson Variksenpelättimenä, Diana Ross Dorothyna, ohjaajana Sidney Lumet, tuottajana Rob Cohen joka myöhemmin ohjasi Hurjapäät ja xXx:n, musiikin tuottajana Quincy Jones ja käsikirjoittajana Joel Schumacher. Juurikin niin heikko veto kuin voisi kuvitella. Paria toimivaa kohtausta lukuun ottamatta yli kahden tunnin pituus tuntuu hämmentävän heikosti kirjoitetulta kiirastulelta täynnä mitä-vittua -lavastusta, täysin pieleen mennyttä leikkausta ja t"

"11.1.2012 Ihan kohtalainen näyttämömusikaalin kääntäminen elokuvaksi, joka kuitenkin kärsii eniten tutusta juoneestaan ja pitkästä kestosta. Toki aika hieno ja paikoin erikoinen toteutus tarjosi yllätyksiä matkan varrella. Pääroolien esittäjät tekevät parhaansa, mukana on esim. energinen ja nuori Michael Jackson Variksenpelättimenä. Päälle kaksituntisena tämä kuitenkin tuntuu auttamattoman pitkältä. Kenties muutaman heikomman musiikkinumeron olisi voinut leikata pois, n"

" Tão bom quanto a versão de 1939 com Judy Garland no papel principal. A trilha não é nada menos do que sensacional. Composta por Quincy Jones, cada música é um ótimo exemplo do que os EUA têm de melhor em R&B. Michael Jackson como o Espantalho está fantástico. Richard Pryor está engraçadíssimo, apesar de ter pouco tempo em cena. Para quem gosta da versão de 39, este filme é obrigatório."
