A classic Disney fairytale collides with modern-day New York City in a story about a fairytale princess who is sent to our world by an evil queen. Soon after her arrival, Princess Giselle begins to change her views on life and love after meeting a handsome lawyer. Can a storybook view of romance survive in the real world?
In order to restore their dying safe haven, the son of Poseidon and his friends embark on a quest to the Sea of Monsters to find the mythical Golden Fleece while trying to stop an ancient evil from rising.

1920s Vienna. Nine-year-old Mary lives in a home filled with lovely things and loneliness. Bothered by bratty brother Max and neglected by well intentioned, but distracted, parents, she yearns for companionship and adventure. On Christmas Eve, Mary's beloved Uncle Albert arrives with the gift of a wooden nutcracker doll. Later that night, Mary's imagination brings the doll to life. Introducing himself as "NC," he takes her on a wondrous journey through a stunning dimension where toys assume human form and everything appears ten times larger. But danger lurks. An army of toothy rat creatures, led by the flamboyant Rat King and his devious mother, has unleashed a plot to overthrow humanity. When NC is captured and placed under a paralytic spell, Mary, Max and a spirited band of toy sidekicks must rescue him from the Rat King's clutches and thwart his wicked plans to 'ratify' the world.

As Uncle Albert sings the song about the pebble to Father and Mother in the study and the camera moves back and forth the ink smudge on Father's right ring finger changes in size and colour. See more »
It seems that all the reviewers missed their mark and poorly did their jobs! First, they say it was "dark" because of the rat army? But, I remember Monkey flying armies in the "Wizard of Oz", does that mean that it was "dark"? Nonsense! How about the Wicked Witch of the West starting the Straw Man on fire? Did that send "Children running up the isles"? Nonsense Again! So, the question is did the major studio's not want the Competition and conspire to hurt a decent well done holiday movie? My guess is yes! Only 45 screens in the U.S. doomed it to failure. As to it being a bad version of Nutcracker, It was not a version of Nutcracker at all! It says plainly "the untold story" and inspired by the Nutcracker, but , that was it! It was a fantasy adventure with some very good effects. The lift up the Christmas tree was deserving of much praise as a "magical Cinematic moment"! As, were others in this film. I had my children see it and they liked it very much, as did the Grandparents. Don't listen to the reviewers, they already decided this films fate before they saw it! (my belief) Otherwize they would't be so shallow and incredibly slow about their reviews!
