'Tis not the best Disney film, but not the worst
25 December 2002 | by (Brentwood, California) – See all my reviews

All of the Disney Channel original movies that are made are obviously not the best you have ever seen, mainly because they are fastly made and not in the theaters. The Disney Channel claims to have one out every month, but in the past year or so it has really bugged me because they have been skipping months (like every other month) and not having anything special in place (like a marathon or something). Everyone has mixed opinions on the movies, some of mine are high, some are extremely low, but for Twas the Night, I am sort of in between.

I disliked this movie for a number of flaws that I find obvious, but not everyone may. One of the flaws was not having the worthy camera angles that they were capable of. Some shots were of a character talking and they showed something in the way of the character witch confused the viewer and questions their judgement. There were also some unentertaining parts, some boring and simple parts, and some predictable ones too. The overall plot was okay, but Disney has done some better ones. Bryan Cranston did great in this, however, the majority did fair, not great. The pros were that at least it kept you watching the entire movie. For the reasons I gave, I will have to day that I give this movie a 7 out of 10. It is a nice Christmas flick some will enjoy.
