Storyline

11-year-old Lisa has no time for toys; she's too busy taking care of her siblings and cooking for her mother. During the Christmas Eve blizzard, Lisa travels to Toyland in Wizard of Oz-like fashion and arrives just in time for a wedding. Young Mary Contrary is about to marry mean, old Barnaby Barnacle, despite the fact that she loves Jack Be Nimble. Lisa tries to stop this terrible wedding and, together with her new friends, discovers that Barnaby wants to take over Toyland. Lisa, Mary, Jack, and Georgie Porgie ask the Toymaster for help, but he can't help them as long as Lisa doesn't truly believe in toys. Written by Christine Sai-Halasz <sai@mit.edu>

Quotes

Toymaster: Ah, you two are the very first to see my newest creation.
Lisa Piper: Toymaster, for once, don't you just do something more important than a new toy? Jack and Mary have both disappeared and by the way things are looking, we could all end up disappearing.
Toymaster: Oh, Lisa, I can see that you're very upset.
Lisa Piper: Yes, I am very, and this is no time for anybody to be playing with toys. Not even you.
Toymaster: We'll just have to manage it, eh?
Lisa Piper: Toymaster, I don't think you really realized what's going on in Toyland. The whole place is...

WHAT?!?! Bad movie this SO NOT is!
7 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't know how people can say that this is a terrible movie. Although I cannot say this is a the greatest movie, it's still a fun, sweet, Christmas family movie for all. Sure it's cheezy and a little bit wizard of oz-ish, but who care. It's a low budget made for TV movie, so you shouldn't be expecting the best sets and special effects. Can't a movie just be fun anymore. Do we always have to think about it too much. Just watch the movie and enjoy the Christmas togetherness and fun nursery rhymes from your childhood. Drew Barrymore, Keanu Reeves, and Pat Morita, as well as the rest of the cast, do a great job. I feel like going to CINCINNATI now. Watch this movie! I dare you.
