  • 4 stars "My Husband and I enjoyed this. Worried about the fact that it was a musical, but it really worked. Liked the whole concept. The fact that it was a musical worked well with the fact that it was intertwined with fairy tales. The ending worked very well. Detected some Grimm influence which is a good way to teach lessons."
  • 5 stars "This has to be the best movie Disney has made in a very long time, if not in their history."
  • 1 star "This has to be the worst movie that Disney has made in a very long time if not, in their history. What a waste of great talents. I needed a stiff drink or some anti depressants after watching this poor excuse of a movie. Very dark theme. It should have ended three quarters through."
