Don’t be late for this fantastical date

Disney’s Alice in Wonderland opens on Friday. I’m not sure why some critics seem to have taken a dislike to it, because as far as this house is concerned it’s pure Burton magic. I took four kids of various ages to a sneak preview and they loved every fantastical 3-D minute of it, declaring it ‘awesome’, ‘magical’ and ‘wicked’. They agreed Alice seemed a little ‘cold’, but thought that probably fitted with her background (very perceptive).

Their favourite characters were Matt Lucas as Tweedledum and Tweedledee, Alan Rickman as the Caterpillar, Stephen Fry as the Cheshire Cat – ‘very funny’ – and they all thought Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen was ‘hilarious’. And of course it does boast Johnny Depp, who, let's face it, even with that mad hair and those weird eyes is mesmerising *cough*.

My advice? Go see it, make your own minds up. Let me know what you think.

    OOh I can’t wait to see this! I’m a bit of a Disney-aholic as you know, and I love Johnny Depp too – it’s a win/win! x

    This is not really sitting very well with my claim of "It’s not a kids film and I’m therefore completely justified in making it a GNO to fawn over Johnny Depp"…any chance you could tweak it slightly? 😉 Px

    Ah you can still make it a GNO – but you might have to go twice to take the kids too!
