Storyline

Alice (Tina Majorino) follows a white rabbit (Kiran Shah) down a rabbit-hole into a whimsical Wonderland, where she meets characters like the delightful Cheshire Cat (Whoopi Goldberg), the clumsy White Knight (Christopher Lloyd), the rude Major Caterpillar (Sir Ben Kingsley), and the hot-tempered Queen of Hearts (Miranda Richardson), and can grow ten feet tall, or shrink to three inches. But will she ever be able to return home?

A very good adaptation of the novel
20 February 2013 | by haikus753See all my reviews

This movie is very good. It is a very enjoyable movie (or miniseries, as some call it), and is a pretty faithful adaptation of the original book by Lewis Carroll. This movie has its flaws, though. For example, the movie somewhat revolves around Alice having to gain confidence in herself through her adventures in wonderland so that she can sing the song "Cherry Ripe" in front of an audience at a garden party (she must sing at the garden party in the real world, not wonderland). While this is not a huge mistake, I would have preferred if it had stuck to the original novel's version, where Alice is sitting by a riverbank with her sister (in the real world). No sweat, none of that was a spoiler. Anyway, that was one of the only few flaws this movie had, in my opinion. That being said, the rest of this film is wonderful. The acting is great, although a bit over the top sometimes (but, hey, it's Alice in Wonderland!), and the special effects are very nicely done, especially for a 1999 TV movie. The story is very good, and just as mentioned, is for the most part faithful to the book. Tina Majorino makes a splendid Alice, I believe. The rest of the cast was great, too. The music was also good. Overall, this is an excellent film that, although it has some flaws, is still very entertaining to watch. 8/10 stars
