Wonderful
21 November 2005 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

I don't usually comment on movies here but since there is only one review up and it is so absolutely negative, I felt I had to respond. I saw this movie as a young child and have seen it many times since then and I have always loved it. It was my first introduction to the Oliver Twist story and I found it to be sweet and enchanting. I thought the animation was fine, quite good for the time, I certainly didn't find it 'flat' like the other reviewer said, I mean if he is comparing it to Disney masterpieces or Pixar, it certainly cant compete, but it certainly isn't a problem for you to enjoy the film.

I also found it hysterical at times! There was a lot of laugh aloud moments for me, particularly the kitchen fight with the cooks and Oliver. Talk about slapstick comedy! The music is also very good. I enjoyed all the songs as well. It was sorta reminiscent of Charlotte's Web in terms of style, you know the cartoon they did with the spider and the pig back in the '70s as well. It was incredibly moving at times as well. I shed a tear especially near the end when one of the main characters dies.

And I thought the frog that Oliver has as a pet was adorable! I think people can take things too seriously sometimes. The other reviewer was way off the mark. I certainly thought this was better than Madagascar which I just saw recently, which had a very weak story, and only so-so visuals if you ask me. This cartoon had Charles Dickens as a literary source and you can't get much better than that.
