Huge Disappointment, 17 March 2013
Author: Caren Young from United States

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.
