Movie Info

One of The Brothers Grimm's best loved fairy tales gets an overhaul using the latest in visual effects technology in this comedy-drama for the whole family. A little girl (Dakota Fanning) has a hard time getting to sleep, so her father (Daniel Roebuck) dusts off a book of children's stories and reads her one of his favorites. Hansel (Jacob Smith) and Gretel (Taylor Momsen) are two children who are being raised by their loving father (Gerald McRaney) and his shrewish second wife (Delta Burke)

It would be hard to imagine a more feeble rendering of the 19th century Grimm Brothers tale.

What it lacks is a coherent point of view or consistent tone.

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.
