kids shouldn't be subjected to this
18 September 2006 | by See all my reviews

Maybe it's just because I watched it in an 11ths grade lit class but whatever the reason, I thought this was one of the worst pieces of film I have ever seen. It was especially surprising considering the director. I suppose Coppola was drunk. I understand that it's a kid's show but seriously, they could've done better than that. Bad acting, bad visuals, and it didn't stick to the storyline very well. All we did during the entire movie was make fun of it. At times it almost seemed like they were reading off of a cue card and had never seen the lines before. You want to expose your kids to classic stories? Try reading to them.
