  • 3 stars "I liked how they mixed all the fairy tales together in this brothers Grim styled-tale but definitely not for kids. The singing is good but again, the themes in this movie would scare some kids"
  • 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."
