The recut American version is truly awful, but a good 75 percent of the awfulness is attributable to Miramax, the film's distributor.

What can one say about a balding 50-year-old actor playing an innocent boy carved from a log?

What remains is a variant of the nincompoop Benigni persona, here a more annoying, though less angry version of the irresponsible Sandlerian manchild, undercut by the voice of the star of Road Trip.

I can't say this enough: This movie is about an adult male dressed in pink jammies.

Instead of hiding Pinocchio from critics, Miramax should have hidden it from everyone.

An epic turkey, in a league with this year's Swept Away, that must be seen to be believed.

While Benigni (who stars and co-wrote) seems to be having a wonderful time, he might be alone in that.

Audiences can be expected to suspend their disbelief only so far -- and that does not include the 5 o'clock shadow on the tall wooden kid as he skips off to school.

Would Benigni's Italian Pinocchio have been any easier to sit through than this hastily dubbed disaster?

In the spirit of the season, I assign one bright shining star to Roberto Benigni's Pinocchio -- but I guarantee that no wise men will be following after it.

Benigni's Pinocchio is extremely straight and mind-numbingly stilted, its episodic pacing keeping the film from developing any storytelling flow.

The idea of 49-year-old Roberto Benigni playing the wooden boy Pinocchio is scary enough. The reality of the new live-action Pinocchio he directed, cowrote and starred in borders on the grotesque.

The movie unfolds in a clumsy zone between fantasy and realism, and in the end it's neither here nor there.

As the wooden puppet who yearns to be human, Benigni ... is steadfastly insufferable, from his naughty, na´ve stage through a transformation to a state of virtue that is steeped in a self-congratulatory martyrdom and nobility.

A movie so bad that it quickly enters the pantheon of wreckage that includes Battlefield Earth and Showgirls.

Lethal for kids and an unspeakable insult to adults, this unreleasable fiasco is a torture for all.

A film substantially lacking in personality, energy, magic and humor.
