Critic Reviews for Hansel & Gretel
It would be hard to imagine a more feeble rendering of the 19th century Grimm Brothers tale.
For trashing a classic, [Tunnicliffe] and his writing cohorts deserve a Grimm-style fate -- perhaps a long, slow boil in the witch's vat?
While the picture stays to basic outline of the original story in opening and closing sections, the large middle is stuffed with badly staged slapstick and painful stabs at hip dialogue in an arch attempt to cater to modern kids.
Audience Reviews for Hansel & Gretel
It looks great, but it's a flawed bore. Not enough fantasy sequences are created, reducing its magic. It seems like a school play with people in costumed roles.
This movie was funny when I was a kid, I haven't watched it again yet, so I'm not going to watch it again.
Real Life Husband & Wife Gerald McRaney & Delta Burke a young Taylor Momsen,Howie Mandel, & Lynne Redgrave are enough to memit me watching this Beloved but Feared Story from my Childhood.I enjoyed seeing it on screen instead of just from a book.Delta Burke was a little TOO Good as the Evil Step Mother.Lynn Redgrave is wonderful casting as the Witch.I'm surprised this didn't do well by the Critics, because this Amateur Critic enjoyed it quite a bit.
