Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
Barbie fans who have been waiting for the platinum-tressed supertoy to break out of her mold will be enchanted by this computer-animated fantasy, a setting of classic holiday tale. Fans of The Nutcracker -- best known in for the timeless Tchaikovsky-scored ballet, which was based on an Alexander Dumas adaptation of E.T.A. Hoffman's original tale -- may question a few creative choices. Here the evil Mouse King voiced by Tim Curry shrinks plucky young Clara to toy size. Since only the Sugarplum Princess yes, "Fairy" would appear to be copyrighted can reverse the spell, Clara and the brave Nutcracker set out across the Sea of Storms to find her. There are daring rescues, comical snow fairies, and fantastic creatures to captivate youngsters. The computer animation is not up to Toy Story or Shrek standards, but the Mouse King and his hench-bat are memorably rendered. The London Symphony Orchestra performs Tchaikovsky's beloved music, and Peter Martins of the New York City Ballet choreographed the dazzling ballet sequences. Barbie gives a bravura performance in her dual roles as Clara and the Princess; Clara is a positive role model, yearning to discover the "world of wonders" and not content to let the Nutcracker fight her battles for her. The queen of dolls certainly makes this Nutcracker sweet.

    I LOVE this movie! Ok, so the graphics aren't terribly complex,

    I LOVE this movie! Ok, so the graphics aren't terribly complex, but Barbie is, after all, a doll, and this is a doll's world. This is NOT a ballet, although Barbie does dance at the end. This is a STORY. If you don't want to watch a STORY, and you want a ballet, than watch something else, but don't criticize this movie because it isn't a ballet. This STORY has a fantastic script, and I especially loved the end! Enter this film with an open mind and you won't be disappointed! :)

    Barbie does not perform any ballet

    I bought it hoping to introduce my grandchildren to the Nutcracker Ballet. This DVD is anything but the Nutcracker Ballet it purports to be and represent. No actual ballet in it but a story that has no relevance. Very disappointed.

    Silly

    My neice and I rented this movie because we got so many good coments on it from other people. We thought it would be like the ballet, and actually have more dacing and music. But all we got in the end was just a silly little musical. We actually thought this movie would be at least half way decent because it had my neice's favorite doll in it"Barbie". But she did not enjoy it at all.

    Very Enjoyable

    I love the story of the Nutcracker and, of course, the music. I found this to be a very enjoyable version of it. My daughter, who is 5, loves it too. We like to play it all through the Christmas season. We like this one better that Swan Lake and Repunzel, but not as much as The Princess and the Pauper.

    Scarry and horrible

    My granddaughter and I were disappointed and unhappy during the entire movie. You ask, why did we keep watching, well to tell you the truth we thought it would get better. we were expecting dancing and music and instead got a war for most of the film. the scarry parts went on and on and so we fast forwarded to the 'good parts'. i see no redeeming value to this film and will look for another video of the nutcracker that is beautiful and enjoyable.

    Nutcracker

    The nutcracker is my favorite character and since I saw that movie I wanted one, so I'm hoping I get a nutcracker for christmas just like Clara. But I hoping that this nutcracker comes alive just like Prince Eric. I just love Nutcrackers!!!!
