Barron films gone bad
10 May 2003 | by Stephanie KSee all my reviews

Ok, don't get me wrong, Barron Entertainment is not a bad company. Shows like 'Ship to Shore' and 'Chuck Jones' are reasonable, though not great to watch, good for school holiday viewing. I'm a huge fan of Oliver Twist though, so I saw this once for the sake of seeing it, and it's bad. The acting is terrible all around, and it has plot holes and absolutely no relevance to the original book at all aside from character names. I don't have a lot else to say on it - I switched the channel halfway through, out of fear that if the wind changed I might have a permanent grimace. All I can say is, don't bother. You'll only end up wanting that half an hour of your life back so you can watch something decent that's Oliver Twist related, like the musical or the 1948 movie. I never thought I'd see a worse version than the 1999 BBC series, but this takes the cake.
