Trivia

The adaptation is faithful to Lewis Carroll's novel "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland," a thinly-veiled satire of 19th-century England. The Queen of Hearts is really Queen Victoria, the King is Prince Albert, the White Rabbit is the chancellor of Oxford, the Cheshire Cat is the Dean of Oxford University's Christ College... and the Valet is Lewis Carroll himself.

The creepy kind of weird.
7 January 2009 | by happyreflexSee all my reviews

It's a hideous little production, apt to give one nightmares as well as headaches. It's an unsightly blend of live action and ugly stop-motion animation. It's weird, but it's not the kind of fun, weird trip anyone optimistic might expect. It's the cold, inhuman, unfriendly, sickening, even creepy kind of weird. There is absolutely no reason to watch this movie. After all, Disney did a fantastic job with the same source material. And Cosgrove-Hall did far more attractive things with stop-motion.

Interestingly, this is a French production. As such, it re-enforces the stereotype that the French have no concept of scary.
