Heartwarming and magical! Drew Carey shines as Geppetto learns that being a parent is not as easy as he expected. This is a must-see Disney television movie with an amazing soundtrack. (First viewing - 11/14/2010)

One of my cherished childhood memories. Definitely better than the Disney version, mostly thanks to some great songs by the songwriter of Wicked, The Prince of Egypt, and The Hunchback of Notre Dame. A great children's film.

For the most part this made for tv film is sub-par, but it does have it's moments. Easily the best parts of the film is an early pre-fame Usher as the ringleader of Pleasure Island, a role which he seems to have fun with and adds a cool bit of menace to,and Rene Auberjonois who plays the delightfully insane Professor Buonragazzo, a man who works at creating "perfect" children. Overall, while Geppetto ends up being an ok effort, the overall product can be undeniably charming at times and that's enough for me to give this film a recommendation.

Normally I hate it when casting directors just cast as many famous names as possible, because it usually means the movie is so weak that they feel they need all those big names to sell it. Also, Pinocchio was one of my favorite tales when I was a kid, and I've never been very impressed by retellings of classics. For those two reasons, it took me a long time to break down and sit through this. I was very pleasantly surprised, though. While this isn't very unique, it's quite charming and for the most part stays true to the original story. I especially enjoyed the Pleasure Island scenes. Drew Carey's performance is warm and appealing and probably one of the best performances I've seen from him. This is a great family movie.

Sure, it was a made-for-TV Disney film, but thanks to surprisingly amazing performances from Carey, Louis-Dreyfuss, and Spiner, as well as music and score from Stephen Schwartz, I found "Geppetto" to be very enjoyable.

Holy shit, what a craptacular movie. The only good part is Brent Spiner, who clearly knows its crap so he crazies up his part as Stromboli. It wasn't worth $5...

Not half bad for a made for tv movie. Brent Spiner is the best part, and sadly Julia Louis-Dreyfus is the worst. She just doesn't make a good Blue Fairy. She's supposed to be snarky, not sweet. All in all, quite an enjoyable movie.
