How comes MST3K let this go away?
8 January 2002 | by (Pofessional Ville) – See all my reviews

I saw this on French TV, and I don't speak a word of French, but the images talked from themselves: this has to be one of the worst and most stupid children's films ever made. It's yet another version of Tom Thumb but with an acting, sets and costumes level that's below your average kindergarten play. That ogre has to be seen to be believed! (But the actor had a good voice). This movie also features a "flying" effect that must have been the inspiration for "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon"... on second thought, nah. And that "scary" music!

With so many bad European children's films that were featured on MST3K, how's possible they didn't riff this one, that is as bad or worse than them all, and would make an excellent episode? Thank God there are better versions...
