If you go down to the woods tonight be sure of the biggest surprise of your life! When Hansel and Gretel's wicked stepmother leads them into the dark forest, the children find themselves in an enchanted world of magical creatures and hideous monsters. But when they stumble upon a house made of sweets things take a turn for the worse, as inside the cottage is an evil witch who's hungry. And Hansel and Gretel have a sneaking suspicion they might be on the menu! But will the ever-forgetful Sandman and the runny-nosed Boogeyman be able to save them? Written by Anonymous

Great for kid's imagination!!!
11 November 2004 | by (Texas, USA) – See all my reviews

This movie is great for the whole family to sit down together and watch. I love the jokes and references, there is just enough to keep the parents interest along with the children's. For example my favorite reference is the stepmother's comment about "Designing Women", (the stepmother is played by Delta Burke)and the kids enjoy most of them as well. What 7 year old boy doesn't thing farts and burps are funny. It's not intended to be a serious version of the classic fairy tale. It's supposed to be modern and goofy. The characters are over-dramatic and cartoonlike. Perfect for children to imitate and use there imaginations. Great cast of actors. I absolutely love it. It's fun.
