A children's movie for the child in everyone!
3 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a sparkling bonbon of an entertainment that kids and grownups alike can enjoy as a slew of entertainment's brightest stars portray beloved Mother Goose characters who help Mother Goose's son solve the mystery of his missing mom. (The Three Blind Mice (Bobby Brown) as film noir detectives! The Three Little Kittens ('80s band the Stray Cats)as a rock band! Georgie Porgie (Art Garfunkel) as the owner of a nightclub and Mother Hubbard (Elayne Boosler) running a diner! Gotta love it!)My only complaint is that David Bowie appeared nowhere in the cast (but then I'm a Bowie fan)

The music is infectious and sticks in the brain and the costumes and sets are adorably quirky.

I recommend this movie highly, whether you're 4 or 104+ or anywhere in between
