Trivia

This is Tracey Ullman's third fairy tale movie musical. Ullman played Princess Fred in The Wonderful World of Disney: Once Upon a Mattress (2005) (directed by Rob Marshall's sister, Kathleen Marshall), a musical based on The Princess and the Pea; and Latrine in Robin Hood: Men in Tights (1993), although she did not sing in the latter.

Goofs

The Witch can use magic to teleport, and therefore would not need to climb Rapunzel's hair to get into the tower. However, we have no idea what magical powers she is prepared to reveal to Rapunzel. It is quite possible she does not want to be thought of as a witch. See more »

Quotes

Jack: Magic what type of magic?
Baker's Wife: Tell him.
Baker: Magic that, uh, defies description.

Not exactly what I expected
28 December 2014 | by rscampbSee all my reviews

This is a good movie and the entire cast does a very good job but it is not what I thought it was going to be. After seeing the commercials, sneak peeks and behind the scenes shorts I was expecting a movie more in line with the typical Disney fare; a scene providing some information and maybe a story point or two then a song (i.e. Toy Story, High School Musical, etc.). "Into the woods" is more in line with a traditional Opera where every line is done in song. The actress playing Red Riding Hood does a terrific job with her part of the song "Into the woods," you can hear a part of it in the commercials. There is only about 10 minutes of spoken dialogue in the entire movie.

Bottom line is if you do not like the opera production format wait for this movie to come to Netflix (or however you rent movies) so you don't feel so bad about spending so much money if you can't sit through the entire movie.
