Storyline

Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz. At first he thinks he's hit the jackpot-fame and fortune are his for the taking. That all changes, however, when he meets three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz), and Glinda (Michelle Williams), who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone's been expecting. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity-and even a bit of wizardry-Oscar transforms himself not only into the great and powerful Wizard of Oz but into a better man as well. Written by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures

Huge Disappointment
17 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't even want to think about how much money this movie cost. Even seeing it in 3-D didn't help. I found myself nodding off once or twice, it was that boring. All the special effects in the world won't fix lousy acting, bad casting and total lack of a plot. James Franco was terribly miscast. It was like watching that fiasco of him hosting the Oscars with poor Anne Hathaway. The little china doll was a better actor!

Mila Kunis was beautiful but disappointing; Rachel Weisz and Michelle Williams did their best to save a terrible movie. Zach Braff was also good and probably should have been the wizard. Really wish I'd spent my money and time on something else.
