Critic Reviews for Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return
Problems abound from the rushed beginning all the way through the impossibly resolved ending.
It's short on jokes and hampered by unmemorable musical numbers (including one about building a boat), and the film's niceness can't overcome the dopey tedium.
This is one of those movies that parents will have to ask themselves if they love their child enough to sit through it.
Audience Reviews for Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return
My son loves this movie! Very colorful with great animation! He tries to sing along with all the songs. It keeps him entertained! Great buy!!!!!
There's trouble in Oz. Dorothy wakes up in her house fresh off the legendary tale from the Wizard of Oz. Her house has been destroyed and some realeastate developers quickly move in to force her family out of the area. Dorothy stands by her family until she is contacted by Oz and asked to return and save them. Dorothy may need to save her world and Oz. "No good can come from the reign of a fool." Will Finn (Home on the Range) and Daniel St. Pierre (Everyone's Hero) collaborate to deliver Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return. The storyline for this picture is just okay and only so interesting; however, the portrayal of some of the legendary characters was fun and the animation style was very well done. The voices fit the characters well. "They were real people..." I was excited to see this with my daughter when the trailers first aired when it was in theatres; however, we just recently got around to watching it off Netflix. It was very average and a bit disappointing. It reminded me of Hoodwinked in a way (from a quality and feel standpoint). This is worth watching once with your child but may not be worth adding to your DVD collection. "There will always be a rainbow when you need one." Grade: C+
Based on a children's book written by the great-grandson of L. Frank Baum, Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return is a whimsical fantasy adventure. When the Land of Oz is threatened by the Wicked Witch's brother, the Jester, the Scarecrow, Lion, and Tin Man attempts to bring Dorothy back in order to help them. With an all-star cast that includes Lea Michele, Dan Aykroyd, James Belushi, Kelsey Grammer, and Martin Short, the voice performances are pretty good. And, the musical numbers are fun and exciting, featuring songs written by Bryan Adams. The animation however, is rather poor; particularly the character movements. The script is also problematic, with a weak B story dealing with the Tornado aftermath in Kansas. Yet despite its issues, Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return has a bit of magic and is an enjoyable family film.
