Tall Tale Reviews

August 16, 2017
Dang it if Disney's latest for kids doesn't seem like The Wizard of Oz in chaps, sharing that classic's structure but minus its imagination, charm and songs.

It's homespun homily time: TALL TALE may look like a rousing adventure story for the whole family, but it's really a vehicle for the kind of tiresome moral aphorisms that only William Bennett could love. . .

The exquisitely photographed landscapes pull you out of your living room and into the grandeur of the West.

This film contains the stereotypical western adventure movie material.

Excuse me, is this any lesson for kids? Hey, kids, if you dream hard enough, mythical heroes will step out of your fantasies and help defeat your enemies with fancy gunplay.

If the kids can be enticed into theaters during opening weekend, "Tall Tale" is a safe bet to generate strong word of mouth.

If a good children's film is supposed to open the eyes of its young audience, then the somewhat misleadingly titled "Tall Tale: The Unbelievable Adventures of Pecos Bill" is mighty good.

A children's movie with enough gumption, fire and wit to warm the cockles of an adult heart.

Mickey's minions herein transform three of America's rootin'est, tootin'est frontier superheroes into politically and ecologically corrected pablum-spewing icons for our time.

The story, told with energy and humor, is aimed at family audiences, and should appeal to all but the smallest of children.

I know it's odd to praise a film like Pecos Bill for its humanistic values, but these are strange days in which we live.
