OK for kids and has some decent animation but this take on the classic musical prefers to ignore what made its source material great in the first place and instead decides to be a ripoff of Disney and The Prince of Egypt, even though the "cartoon musical" subgenre of animation was becoming outdated by the time the movie came out.
I love this movie so much, because not only that King and I is one of my favorite movies. and Barbra Streisand is amazing for her Medley at the ending Credits, The Medley is I Have Dreamed/We Kiss in a Shadow/Something Wonderful. I just love this movie with a passion.
Most under rated movie ever! My favorite thing in the whole movie would be the soundtrack. 1st saw this about 13 years ago I still periodically watch it till this day
The animation is wonderful enough, but recycling the broadway songs made the film fall flat.
There is no option for zero stars :)
I like how the rating says G for "nothing objectionable" when this entire film is objectionable. Also the guy in the photo looks like Ryu :)
As a kid, I loved this film. Not enough to rewatch it now that I'm older and spoil the memories though...
I feel every minute of this film. The only good part was the "Shall We Dance?" song.
I have not seen the original 1956 film yet, so I'll compare it to it's closest rivals from the same time-period. The voice-acting, in the case of the King speaking broken-English, was annoying. Tarzan spoke broken-English and it managed to make him quite charming. The animation leaves much to be desired for, but since Warner Bros was quite new at animating at the time, there's nothing else i can say, except for I've seen far more superior animation from the Walt Disney Studios (no surprise). Tarzan (1999 film) for example, was done in the same year, and the animation is far more refined and because of that, the film can still be enjoyed by today's youth. As far as the ''Prime Minister wanting to usurp the King'' theme is concerned, Dreamworks Animation (founded by a bunch of ex-Disney animators) did a far better job in The Road To El Dorado (2000) with their High Priest trying to kill the ''false gods''. Another Dreamworks-film, The Prince of Egypt, had a far more powerful theme and storyline, and Pharoah Rameses I, and his father Seti, made for a much better King than Siam ever did. The Road To El Dorado had a lot more wit, the Prince of Egypt had a more successful integration of songs into a Biblical epic and Tarzan had a more experienced animations team. The King and I would've been a far better film if Walt Disney or Dreamworks took over from Warner Bros.
Annoying songs, plot makes no sense, they really screwed this up.
Wait? When did this musical have an evil sorcerer and crappy animation in it?
