Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return

A joyless, charmless cash-grab

No sooner has Dorothy returned from Oz than she’s summoned back by her three YBR traveling companions to deal with the Wicked Witch’s power-mad jester brother. This joyless, charmless cash-grab is the worst “Oz” movie yet (even worse than yours, James Franco). New, moronic characters; sappy pop songs; lazy, unbelievably cheesy animation.

No brain, no heart, no courage, no magic, no soul. You can take your kids if you’re okay with them growing up with low entertainment expectations, but you’ll be bored witless. This movie’s so bad I heard the investors want their money back. Skip it twice. Japanese title: Oz: Mezase! Emerald no Kuni e. (91 min)
