Crazy Credits

Unusual Credit Style: In the closing credits, there are numerous entries for co-producers & other "producer" positions that list both husband & wife for each credit entry, such as "Jack & Jill Jones". Some credits are simply listed as a family unit. One such co-producer is listed as "The Ross Family". It is rare that credits are given in groupings of families. Most credits are a single person's name. See more »

One of the worst movies I've seen at the theater
12 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I wasn't expecting a lot but this movie is one of the worst movies I've ever seen at the theater. If you are a hard-core fan of the Oz/Dorothy stories you might like it but if you are expecting a movie that is even remotely coherent you will be disappointed.

It's fantasy and it's geared toward kids, I get that, but the story and dialog here are so lame that even young kids will struggle to find this movie entertaining. It tries to mimic "Robots" at times (which IS a good movie) and tries to sort of be a Disney-esque musical but it fails to be anything other than just a really bad movie.

This should have been a straight-to-DVD release if it was even released at all. It features big named talent (Patrick Stewart, Dan Akroyd, Kelsey Grammar, Jim Belushi,etc.) but with story this poorly-written nobody could have saved this movie.
