Ah, "Alice in Wonderland"...the Disney movie about a drug trip. Ok, ok, it's a little girl's dream. But with magic mushrooms? Disappearing cats? Strange colors? Hookah? Come on. I think it's fairly common knowledge that Lewis Carroll was an avid drug user, but somehow Disney managed to work with his stories anyway. There are a lot of moments DH and I both love about this film. The best scene is definitely the Mad Tea Party. Almost all of the quotes from that scene crack me up! DH likes the song "In a World of My Own," while I like "Very Good Advice." The quality of the animation is a bit lacking, and apparently it was a flop at the box office when it was first released, but I'm glad we got to watch it again. Disney films are timeless, and it's sadly a rarity when we get to watch them these days. The voice talents were really stacked in this one, too. Ed Wynn, Sterling Holloway, and Jerry Colonna, to name a few. I'm not sure how it ranks among all the Disney animated films, but there really aren't many I would rate under a "3" anyway. Light-hearted fun for a weeknight.
Up Next? A movie neither one of us has seen..."Almost Famous"
