A just adaptation
11 November 1999 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This newest version of the 1865 Lewis Carroll classic is extravagant and imaginative, full of many outstanding actors and actresses, and the best of any special effects for a Hallmark/Halmi movie. Martin Short, Elizabeth Spriggs, Gene Wilder, Tina Majorino, and even Peter Eyre, in a small role as the Frogface Footman carrying his scene with great humor and excellent skill, all are wonderful. Whoopi Goldberg, Ben Kingsley, Robbie Coltrane, Christopher Lloyd, and Miranda Richardson are good as well. George Wendt, however, was annoying and stolid, not at all like the majority of the cast. As said before, FrameStore and the Jim Henson Creature Shop have outdone themselves in the morphing, animatronics, and the like involved in the movie. All in all, a fine adaptation of the story, blending in a bit of Through the Looking-Glass into the first tale; this, as well as an added frame story and other minor things may displease some serious fans of the original book. Also, the pace can be slow at time, especially if you're watching it from the TV airing. The only thing that irked me was some of the script itself: some lines made no sense (or were just plain stupid, and not witty at all), and these that irked me were not put down by Carroll but by script writer Peter Barnes. You might see what I mean when you see the picture itself. Also, editing was sort of mediocre: in cut shots, placement of Alice's hair over her shoulders changes quite often in some scenes. Rating: * * * * 1/2 (out of 5)
