Creepy and depressed...
30 May 2000 | by (New England) – See all my reviews

A very cheap, very depressed, extremely odd piece of Grade-Z kiddie cinema with a creepy, sterile suburban motif. This one's like watching an old educational film from the '50s gone mental; the plot and dialog crawl along mercilessly. Our hero is a pudgy little boy, and the title "magic" tree is very effeminate. Film starts off like THE WIZARD OF OZ, with a black and white prolog in which our hero falls out of a tree and dreams (in color) his family and the tree and everything else. There are odd scenes with a goofy giant and a hideous witch. Then it's back to black and white for the finale. Whew! And it all happens in an hour! For some reason, this wacky, woebegone holiday cheapie reminds me of Peter Bogdonovich's TARGETS; TMCT (perhaps unwittingly) recreates much of the same sterile, repressed-hysteria atmosphere of '60s suburban angst as that pivotal movie. The spooky, paranoid TV ads for this movie warned: "No Adults Admitted Without Children..."
