WONDERFUL! A must see family film
14 July 2003 | by (Minnesota) – See all my reviews

This is a great movie musical made for television. I don't understand how one guy on here says it was such an awful score, I think it's the best original musical score in years and this should be on the Broadway stage. Steven Schwartz is in top form with this one, a 10 star job on this music. Songs such as TOYS, SATISFACTION GUARANTEED and PLEASURE ISLAND are showstoppers, all of them. Two beautiful melodies fill MY EMPTY HEART and SINCE YOU TOOK MY HEART AWAY. The blue fairy also has an excellent melody used several times throughout. Drew and the rest of the cast are quite good, I was impressed at Drew's performance. No, it's not Emmy winning but this role was not meant to be heavily acted. My only complaint is how the end is a little rushed especially the whale sequence, that was the only part of the film that looked cheap to me, the 5 minutes of expelling from the whale.

I recommend this to all families, it's rare to see this kind of entertainment as brand new, not a musical remake. I only wish Disney would wise up and put out a dvd, there never was one, it was scheduled and never released...Amazon says out of print but I have confirmed with Disney they have not and do not have any plans to issue it, can't imagine why. IGNORE THE LOW IMDB RATING....read the reviews, they say it all...not sure why it was such a low number.
