Did You Know?


In the first cut of the film, the woman who warns Edward not to enter the wardrobe that leads to "Gnaria" was completely naked. On the basis of that scene, the MPAA gave the film an R rating. However, the filmmakers had anticipated that the nudity might be an issue, and had filmed the scene where the actress was wearing a bikini. When they inserted that scene and the board reviewed the film again, they immediately changed its rating to PG-13. See more »

Just awful
27 January 2007 | by (Oklahoma, US) – See all my reviews

In the past 10 years, I've probably seen more than 200 movies at theaters. This is the first movie that I've ever walked out on. 45 minutes in, I couldn't handle the torture anymore. This is the most unfunny piece of garbage I've ever seen. Although, I did get a good chuckle when about 50% of the audience had left before the halfway mark.

It's hard to meet the minimum post-length requirement for this movie, because there isn't much to say about it.

I didn't find any of the gags clever. Nor did I find them funny. I did think some of the set designs looked okay. The casting directors also found someone who looked surprisingly like Jack Black, although sadly the script didn't give him anything funny to do.

Just avoid this. It's not even worth a rental.
