  • Went to see this on Thanksgiving night..... some of it was very cute..... some of the visuals stunning...... much of the music was entertaining......

    the message was typical: Hollywood wants to assure us that we humans are stupid and cruel and animals are all wonderfully loving and forgiving creatures that we shouldn't hurt or eat....

    I think my 9 year old daughter summed it up best when we left the theater and she said "Dad....that movie was WAY tooooo long".....it felt like a 3 hour movie" My reply: It wasn't 3 hours?"

    I wouldn't pay again to see it but may watch it again on video.
  • Huh what?..........is it over yet?

    Typical Hollywood doo doo.........

    Waste of money..........

    It's about time you grow up Peter because if I have to sit through another sorry version of this tale I just might start buying and dealing some of that magic dust.

    But.......my 7 year old loved it........then again........she likes just about anything that Hollywood throws at her........
  • The old man mouse in this cartoon would have you believe that all men are created equally EVIL............so if we have to kill men in order to stop Hitler..........we are just as bad as Hitler was killing the Jews........ Well.....I don't buy it Mr. Mouse............but I guess it paints a pretty picture and makes a cute cartoon.......but it wasn't the reality then and it ain't reality now.
  • It is now 2004..............we are in the age of "DON'T CENSOR THIS", "DON'T CENSOR THAT"........"DON'T CENSOR ME....DON'T CENSOR ME".........but the underlying message is "DON'T

    CENSOR ANYTHING (unless we, the politically correct disagree

    with what is being said).............It used to be that if someone said

    something racist they didn't have to resign their position......they

    just looked like the idiots that their ignorance proved them to

    be...........In regards to Song Of The South........it should be released and if the "politically correct" don't like it........they don't have to buy it, rent it or watch it! Sadly, I believe the day is coming in America

    when we will not be able to get a hold of classic movies like "Gone With The Wind" due to the way the African American characters

    are portrayed...........there is no stopping this politically correct

    machine.
  • Okay.......so it took me 40 years to watch this movie.......I've heard

    about it my whole life.........I think this would have made a great 47

    minute movie...........it was just too darn long........Bing (did he EVER

    look young??) has that beautiful voice and of course Irving's title

    song is beyond awesome.........but man! the stuff in-between the

    Christmas parts is more painful than being the turkey on

    Thanksgiving Day.........you find yourself praying for snow 30

    minutes into the movie so the dumb thing will end!

    I could not take that anorexic babe dancing........she was so skinny

    to watch that I found myself stuffing extra cookies in my mouth

    trying to telepathically put the weight on her........those legs were

    scary looking......Clooney, who sings like an angel looked like one

    of those 60's clay-mation characters from Rudolph the whole

    movie........and I think she just might have "man-hands."

    Anyway.........it's still worth the watch for the 10 minutes of

    Christmas material........the sets look like cheap plastic but that

    worked for me in a strange way........my advice would be this:

    If you've never seen "White Christmas".........make your self some

    good eggnog, put a Santa hat on and watch "Holiday Inn"!!!!!!
  • A great Idea.....moving story......POORLY executed......

    Okay......I know most of the commentaries I've read here are written

    by CP worshippers.......and I myself have seen it at least 5

    times...........each time I see it I get more bugged.......it could have

    been a classic.......it COULD have..........it is no classic.......

    Whoopi is fabulous........Oprah is awesome........I can't say bad

    things about the acting......it's all good...........great

    music.............beautiful cinematography........

    Mind if I scream now?

    THE DETAILS ARE AWFUL...........WHY ARE THERE 30 KIDS

    RUNNING AROUND THE HOUSE SPLASHING IN PUDDLES.........WHO ARE THESE CHILDREN? IS WHOOPI

    RUNNING A DAYCARE CENTER???? ARE ALL BLACK MEN

    DIRTY DOGS AND/OR IDIOTS?? ACCORDING TO THIS MOVIE THEY ARE. PLEASE...PLEASE....PLEASE.....TELL ME

    WHY WHOOPI LOOKS 75 YEARS OLD AT THE END OF

    THE MOVIE AND HER SISTER LOOKS ABOUT 25 YEARS

    OLD WHEN THEY WERE KIDS TOGETHER???????????

    MUST BE ALL THE DAYCARE THAT WHOOPI PROVIDED.

    THEIR GRAY HAIR LOOKED SPRAY PAINTED ON. C'MON.......

    Don't tell me this is a classic movie........it could have been.......but it

    is not......Steven.... you messed up........it feels like production was

    rushed and they said...."hey.....we have such a tear jerker

    here......nobody will notice the mistakes and shortcomings."

    Thank you.....
  • Hey......I look at it this way.........about 10 minutes into it........I fell asleep........and I woke up at the ending credits to see my wife next

    to me sleeping........we haven't slept that well in years.......the movie

    gets an 8/10 just for the sleep factor alone......

    But.......I must say.........the 10 minutes that I did see were way......

    and I mean WAY beyond painful! So grab a couple vicodins for the

    beginning and your favorite pillow and ENJOY!
  • Okay.......I was not supposed to like this......my teenager nephew

    told me I must borrow his DVD and watch it.......he said everyone in

    his family hated it.....he was hoping I would like it.........so I politely

    took it home and popped it in........I thought it was hilarious.......if

    you do not like Airplane or the Naked Gun movies.......you will hate

    it......if you like those Abraham/Zucker movies....you will love

    this......funny funny funny.......and the extras are great!

    To Summarize.......I bought my own copy!
  • Wow......These Addie Mills CBS TV specials are so fantastic......I have enjoyed all four of them.......the only one that has never been available on VHS is "Addie and the King of Hearts" which is the Valentine's Day special..........The Easter Promise is so touching and once again Jason Robards shines........this is worth checking out!!!!!!
  • I grew up watching the original 1964 Rudolph clay-mation special.......it is an almost perfect Christmas special with great voices, songs and magic.......... This 2001 version is soooooo painful I coughed up my egg nog.........the music is so sappy.........the dialogue painful.........after a few minutes you just wish the big hairy snowman would eat up the rest of the characters and call it a day........ This was just a quick money making scheme........and it probably worked........the computer graphics are awful....... STAY AWAY.........not even worth renting........it will give you nightmares..........
