Product Description

Amazon.ca

This is an impressive-looking version of Lewis Carroll's story originally produced for NBC-TV. Dreading a singing recital at her parents' lavish home, Alice falls into a strange world in pursuit of a large White Rabbit. The talented child actor Tina Majorino (Corrina, Corrina) plays Alice with all the good graces but mostly wanders through the story unquestioningly. Carroll's tale of whimsical, illogical adventures is a field day for designers Roger Hall and Alan Tomkins, costumer Charles Knode, Jim Henson's Creature Shop, and director Nick Willing (Photographing Fairies. Influenced by Time Bandits and Labyrinth (the latter also designed by the Henson company), the film has a splendid array of effects, many dealing with multiple perspectives as Alice constantly changes sizes. The highlight is Whoopi Goldberg as the Cheshire Cat, a seamless mix of cat and comic. Martin Short as the Hatter and Mirandra Richardson as the Queen of Hearts seem to be having the times of their lives. This is not the definitive version of Carroll's tale, and, like the popular Disney animated version, combines some elements of Carroll's sequel, Through the Looking Glass. It is perhaps better viewing for the fan that has seen another version of the tale or read the book. --Doug Thomas

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute rendition June 11 2014
By Meagz
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is low budget, but I think the Alice here is cute (Napoleon Dynamite anyone?) and it is very true to the book. There are scenes not pictured in other movies and they do really well with the limitations they have. Some costumes are a little creepy but it kind of adds to it. I have watched it a few times now and I enjoy most adaptations of this book because I love it.

4.0 out of 5 stars It may not be the REAL Alice, but... Oct. 30 2007
By Chara
Format:DVD
...I have come to enjoy it for its own good qualities.

True, they did kind of muff it up by making Alice's adventures underground into a learning experience where she realized she did not need to be afraid of performing in public. However, the characters were hilarious. The White Rabbit was a bit boring, but the others seemed to play their parts to the hilt. I especially liked the Caucus Race scene, Pat the Irish gardener and his friend Bill, and the Mock Turtle. Of course, the Mad Tea-Party scene deserves mention as well. Tina Majorino with a British accent is odd, but I suppose it was seen as necessary.

The musical numbers are delightful.

If you don't expect this to be a re-telling of the actual "Alice" story, it is not too bad. I did not care for it the first time I saw it, as it is a little weird, but my kids have come to like it, too--even after having read the original.

2.0 out of 5 stars Big budget does not a good Wonderland make June 16 2004
By Chris
Format:DVD
When I first read of this adaptation in 1999, I was so excited to hear of a huge Hollywood version of my favourite book of all time. Another Wonderland to get lost in, another Alice to follow on her nonsensical, whimsical journey. What I ended up with was another reason not to trust American telemovies.
The last telemovie attempt at 'Alice In Wonderland' was in 1985 when Irwin Allen made a very admirable attempt at recreating both 'Wonderland' and its sequel 'Through The Looking-Glass'. In comparison to modern film technology, the sets are a bit plastic looking and there are one too many distractingly sickening songs, not to mention some embarrassing moments of 'special effects' (see the model train used to cringeworthy effect in 'Lookin-Glass'). However when stacked up against this travesty, Allen's creation is an absolute opus.
The biggest problem with this latest Wonderland is it gets lost in its own surface. As a result, it is a horribly stilted, detached and depthless rendering of one of the most exciting fictional worlds in modern literature. Nearly every setting is CGI'd beyond recognition, with unnecessary inclusions and digital touch-ups in almost as many scenes. As for the cast, for a group of actors who are arguably the cream of the Hollywood crop they turn in rather unimpressive performances. Tina is a solid Alice, but talented actors like the divine Whoopi Goldberg are wasted on parts like the Cheshire Cat. It comes off as another reviewer stated like a furry grey Whoopi Goldberg, not Goldberg playing a role. Unfortunately, this can be said for most of the other famous names in the film as well. As for the White Rabbit, I don't think I've ever seen a more unconvincing and irritating creature in my life. It looks like the perverted brother of the Energiser Bunny.

I got this in a cereal box for free, which I'm grateful for, but I wish I hadn't watched it. It's everything you'd expect of a modern re-telling of this story with Hollywood comedians and actors. They make the first mistake of having an American Alice attempt a British accent. Secondly, she's had to perform a song, and the story is revealed to be only a result of a dream she's had, like Dorothy. They've penned a couple of wretched, unmemorable songs. A constantly blinking rabbit runs around and seems to have made no contribution. It's cold and lifeless, except for its set design, but it's still not much to look at. It's the Tim Burton excuse of creative style over substance, but Tim Burton movies have something to add.
The actors don't even seem to want to act against the other actors and the camera and costumes ensure you never see them express body language. The camera uses many closeups and quickly cut away from what you want to see, assuming you're already bored, the backgrounds are either blandly digital or miniatures. It's claustrophobic, suffocating and irritating to watch.
Whoopi Goldberg and Martin Short are two examples of inspired casting. Goldberg plays herself as a grinning Chesire cat, Short plays the Mad Hatter as a kind of gay socialite Austin Powers, which I can accept in this rendition but it doesn't totally work. There's no wonder to any of it and all the added-for-tv wacky dialogue just seems to get further and further away from what worked about the book - which was more and it deserves a much better film version. This never came together and when Miranda Richardson was onscreen to play croquet the whole thing just dies and the only thing keeping it going is its set pieces. There was nothing going for this in the first place, so just avoid it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Oh, Alice, what have they done to you? Jan. 28 2004
Format:DVD
This is the worst adaptation of Alice in Wonderland I have ever seen. From the ridiculous and invented-for-the-movie stage fright premise on, this is a classic example of a movie not doing justice to a book.
I'm giving this DVD 1 star, and that star is for Martin Short, the only saving grace of this movie. He plays the Mad Hatter to deranged perfection. And I guess the costumes are pretty.
