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

Amazing movie, Funny, Inspiring, and Fun.
8 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't normally write reviews, however I feel compelled to write something about this movie. I have seen some negative publicity about this movie and noticed that there was some low scores in the voting. I have to say respectfully to these people, you're being stupid. The movie was almost perfect for what it was intended to be, a family movie about a magical place. There were in fairness some mistakes made in the plot concerning the relationships between the main characters, but they were more creative differences I would have and not full blown errors. Beyond that the movie was brilliant and was in a most pleasant and surprising way funny and I mean funny. The movie was a credit to the legend of L Frank Baum and the legend of The Wizard of Oz. I don't think this movie has any hope of the kind of success The Wizard of Oz had, but It was far above and beyond the typical garbage being manufactured in Hollywood these days. I say get the girlfriend, boyfriend, kids, mom, dad, or whoever and go see it, you will have fun and have some laughs as well. Thank You for reading my review and God Bless.
