Some of the characters in the movie are based on characters in the 'Alice in Wonderland' book. For Example, Whitey (Danny Dyer) is the White Rabbit. The main character Alice is Alice. Gonzo (Matt King) is the Dodo. Harry Hunt (Nathaniel Parker) is the King and Queen. Hattie (Bronagh Gallagher) is the Mad Hatter. Midge (Steve Haze) is the Doormouse. DJ Felix Chester (Gary Beadle) is the Cheshire Cat. Caterpillar (Paul Kaye) is the Caterpillar. The Duchess (Pam Ferris) is the Duchess who sneezes from the pepper and gives Alice a baby that turns into a pig. Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum are Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum. The man that Alice sits next to in the 'Drink Me' bar with the long mustache is the Walrus from 'Through the Looking Glass'. See more »
He sounds... fascinating.
I've heard Harry called a lot of F-words. Fascinating's a new one.

I don't usually write reviews, but I feel the negative reviews given to this film are quite biased and not objective. Most people hold to heart the traditional tale of the classic: "Alice in Wonderland". If you are one of these people and are expecting a nice, warm and fuzzy remake - please stay clear! This is not how this iteration is intended.
This film is (to what I perceive) a cult twisted vision on what Alice in Wonderland might have been if she had ingested a little more than a bottle of shrinking potion and more like what you might buy on the streets of Amsterdam.
Featuring hookers, gangsters, a Bob Marley wannabe (as the Caterpillar) and DJ Felix Chester as the Cheshire Cat, this twisted rehash is one that deserves its place next to the rest of the Alice in Wonderland legends.
