“Oh, Toto, this doesn’t look like the Oz I remember,” Dorothy murmurs at one point. Truer words were never spoken.

A cheap and charmless reminder to leave the classics alone.

Even by the standards of allowance-snatching half-term filler, this is pretty indifferent.

It’s simply tacky consumer product that dishonors the famous name in its title—the same one that’s keeping this film from the direct-to-video burial it deserves.

It’s a loud Oz hodgepodge that never adheres to a prevailing tone long enough to allow viewers to emotionally engage with those characters in spite of some admittedly inspired CG flourishes.

Kid-friendly with some neat visuals. Adults will appreciate the dulcet tones of Frasier as the Tin Man.
