Crazy Credits

In the opening credits, we are told that the story is "based on the book by Timothy Susanin, forward by Diane Disney Miller." It's supposed to be "foreword," not "forward." This error is one of the most common in English and does not speak highly of the technical team's literacy level. See more »

Appalling
25 April 2016 | by (Sydney) – See all my reviews

This is my very first IMDb review. I was compelled to write, as this film is simply THAT bad.

This is a cheesy, cheap, made-for-TV style travesty with all the depth of a teaspoon. The script is weak, the dialogue stilted and cringe-worthy, and the acting is quite simply pitiful. But the worst thing about this film is the pathetically awful directing. A glance at Khoa Le's bio tells you everything you need to know. A director with absolutely no skill or experience who's greatest talent seems to be talking himself up.

Walt Disney, the man himself, is a subject that is ripe for the picking

  • compelling, universally appealing, easily marketable. No one but the
most dyed-in-the-wool deluded Disney fanatic could believe this version of his story is all there is to tell. This paltry product barely even begins to pick off the obvious scabs of the man's early life. Any other half-witted music video producer masquerading as a feature film director could have done so much more with this material and cast.

The most intriguing and surprising thing about this, is that it got past the Disney legal team.
