WoW... reminds me of older days.
10 May 2000 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This movie reminds me of the classic musicals of the 50's. I LOVED IT. The cast was excelent... Drew Cary did an outstanding job (and boy did he sound better singing in this than he does on who's line is it anyways LOL). Julia Dreyfus also was terrific as the Blue Fairy. Their dance numbers together are pure magic. The rest of the cast was also truly excelent.

My only problem with this movie is that it was made for TV. Due to time constrictions they rushed the ending. They could of stretched it out in to a 2 day mini series or somthing... But other than that it was great. Disney has been quite the disapointment to me latly with movies like Inspector Gadget and Tarzan... They were horible comparedf to this The musical score was also great. With Dreamworks one step behind Disney needs more movie like this to keep up and notr fall behing.

I give it 99 out of 10...
