Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
A much different, nonmusical take on Carlo Collodi's story than the familiar Disney Pinocchio, Francis Ford Coppola's live-action adaptation merits a no-strings-attached recommendation. Oscar-winner Martin Landau stars as the lonely puppet maker Gepetto, who learns that "miracles are made in the heart" when his latest creation, a little wooden boy, comes to life. Jonathan Taylor Thomas supplies the voice of Pinocchio, whose curiosity leads him on a series of comical and exciting misadventures, such as his nose growing an eye-popping 16 feet after a fib one day. This movie also answers the question: What happens when Pinocchio sneezes? After he unwittingly makes a shambles of a bakery, he is placed in the custody of the evil Lorenzini, who wants to exploit Pinocchio in his grand puppet show. Pinocchio is a state-of-the-art animatronic marvel brought to life by Jim Henson's Creature Shop. Among the gallery of memorable characters are the petty thief Felinet (Bebe Neuwirth) and her dim-witted sidekick Volpe (Rob Schneider), plus Pepe the Cricket, voiced by the original Bosley on TV's Charlie's Angels, David Doyle.
All Movie Guide - Robert Firsching
Carlo Collodi's classic children's tale is brought to the screen in a faithful live-action version by Steve Barron in this delightful fantasy. Jim Henson's Creature Shop provided the wonderful animatronic effects, but neither the high-tech production nor the involvement of five nations (USA, England, France, Germany, and the Czech Republic) detract from the film's simple, low-key pleasures, which are a bit of a surprise coming from the director of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Martin Landau is a sympathetic Geppetto, Jonathan Taylor Thomas shows up as Pinocchio's "real boy" incarnation, and Bebe Neuwirth is marvelously wicked as the scheming Felinet. Adults will enjoy seeing Udo Kier and Genevieve Bujold among the cast, although Rob Schneider's cliched turn as Volpe contains more than a hint of Disneyesque pandering. Overall, however, this is a rare treat for kids and parents alike, and highly recommended.

    Love it

    This movie is such an interesting take of the cartoon Pinocchio. It is for an older child audience. Not so much for toddlers...more geared for ages four and up. I love the detail in costume. The story is the same as the originial movie. Great movie if you like Pinocchio.
