Trivia

In the book, the Mock Turtle is a cow in a turtle's shell, a pun on the 19th century fad of mock turtle soup, which was cheap beef stew dressed up to resemble expensive turtle soup. In this version the Mock Turtle is portrayed as a man in a turtle's shell, rendering the name meaningless. See more »

Wonderful, wonderful!
12 September 2004 | by (Anaheim, CA) – See all my reviews

I have only one complaint, and that is that they mixed the two books; but eh, they all do that. I think I'm the only one who is writing two separate scripts, one for each book. Seriously though, it's a very good rendition. They gave it more of a plot, but it works. And what casting! Goodness! I love the Knave of Hearts, he's a riot.

All in all, there is only that one complaint. I mean, Alice's hair color is even correct! (the real Alice was a brunette)

One last comment, just something that they did that didn't particularly bother me, but might bother some: Alice was older in this, maybe thirteen, fourteen?
