Not as bad as they say.
5 November 2002 | by ubik-11See all my reviews

This movie is legendary in some circles as a bad kiddie flick from Italy, but after watching it I have to say that it isn't that bad. It's basically a sequel to the fairy tale we all know as Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. Just when you thought she was living happily ever after with Prince Charming, along comes war and intrigue and the political problems that any prince must deal with. He's double-crossed so the dwarves go to help him. Their adventures along the way do get a little long near the end, but finally they help the prince and princess and save the day. While most of us are used to seeing the Snow White story aimed at a very young audience, this one's probably more appropriate for kids just a little bit older. Don't get me wrong - I wouldn't buy it for my own kids, but for a movie made in an Axis country just a few years after WWII ended it's not bad. I would like to play it for a youngster just to get their reaction. They might even like it, just for the dwarves' antics if nothing else.
