Editorial Reviews

No matter whether Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Drew Carey can actually carry a tune (or the folks at Disney waved a magic wand to extract such confident, energetic performances), the soundtrack to Geppetto sparkles with theatrical grandeur and a swirly, twinkly, spring-in-your-step sound. Disney so reliably generates such energy that its insatiable audience has come to casually count on it, and Geppetto meets its mark. It's a musical retelling of the classic "Pinocchio"--as told from the point of view of the wooden one's father. Each number on the Stephen Schwartz score conveys the gist of this touching tale of pained parenthood through well-polished lyrics. In addition to the novelty of two of U.S. TV's funniest actors singing, this CD also presents an opportunity to get familiar with Sonya Isaacs (an up and comer on the country scene discovered by Vince Gill), who tenderly and convincingly delivers the last cut, "Since I Gave My Heart Away." Also not to be missed is the operatic, cleverly penned "Bravo Stromboli," powerfully sung by golden-piped, top-shelf talent Brent Spiner (also known as Star Trek: The Next Generation's Data). --Tammy La Gorce

I'm greatly looking forward to seeing this movie May 7.

Stephen Schwartz has once again taken a familiar story and breathed into it new life with his beautiful and highly entertaining score.

He can sing, dance, act and make you laugh so hard you are wiping tears of laughter out of your eyes.

We are all enjoying this cd in the car. My 7-year old son is requesting track #5 "Just Because It's Magic", #7 "Bravo, Stromboli", #9 "Satisfaction Guaranteed" and #11 "Pleasure Island". My four-year old daughter LOVES "Toys". It is a nice switch from N'Sync every minute (nothing personal) and it's great to hear the kids singing the songs in the back seat!

Disney's done it again! This is one of the most memorable made-for-tv musical scores ever. Drew Carey has a great voice for the role-funny and dramatic. "Bravo Strombolli" and "Satisfaction Guaranteed" are incredibly fun to listen to, and "Since I gave my Heart Away" soars. In his book "Not Since Carrie" Ken Mandelbaum says that of flop musicals, ones set in Italy are sure to fail. He, of course, was referring to musicals from 50 years ago. Fifty years later, it looks like Disney has broken the curse. I'm greatly looking forward to seeing this movie May 7.

This was a fun movie, but the soundtrack is haunting. I've been singing the songs to myself every since I bought the CD. Drew Carey does a fantastic job on "And Son" , "Empty Heart" and especially "Since I Gave My Heart Away." He is really proving himself to be a multi-talented artist. The songs are uplifting--and "Just Because It's Magic" sung by Julie Louis-Dreyfus is too painfully true! :) This is a great CD! Bravo to Disney, Drew Carey, and everyone else involved in its production!

I know what you're thinking: Stupid concept, a cast of "TV actors" led by Drew "no one asked you to sing and dance on your show" Carey. You probably think you're too good for this movie. And maybe you're right. The script was lame, the production was stinted and Wayne Brady was wasted as "The Magician's Son."
But...and this is the part where I wow you...none of that matters because this CD is wonderful. The songs by Stephen Schwartz ("Pippin," "Godspell") are beautiful and worthy of any Broadway hall. "Since I Gave My Heart Away" is touching and sad. "Just Because It's Magic" is charming and witty. And the opening number "Toys" is an expertly constructed tapestry of...you know, singing.
And what of the performances? Terrific. Julia "Elaine" Louis-Dreyfus proves that singing is her forte, Brent "Data" Spiner steals the show as Stromboli, Usher (who does not appear on this CD but did on TV) enchants and seduces (not that way) as the Ringleader of the Roustabouts or whatever the heck he is.
And Drew? Look, I like Drew's voice. I think he moves very well for a big guy and his voice, though not expertly trained or as strong as most, is sweet. And as the kind-hearted and simple toymaker, his voice seems oddly appropriate to convey those feelings.
In conclusion, ladles and jellyspoons, don't hurt yourself watching the movie, just buy the record. Partly because Stephen Schwartz is a brilliant songwriter but mostly because I'm looking for other members for my "Drew Carey Should Make Another Musical Club" Or the DCSMAMC as I call it...Not really.

Real catchy and touching songs sung by real people! I love Drew Carey and that's why I originally watched the movie. The first time I watched it I fell in love. The second time I knew I had to get the soundtrack. You have to sing along with this CD!

The Geppetto CD features many catchy tunes including "Toys" and "And Son." The finale song, "Since I Gave My Heart Away" is especially touching and powerful. If you saw Geppetto on tv and went away humming the tunes like I did, then this CD is a must have!

Wow. When I heard Geppetto was on ABC's Wonderful World of Disney, I decided to tune in so I could laugh at Drew Carey making a fool out of himself. However, the more I listened to the music and the lyrics, I realized there was actually something valuable here. Of course, Julia Louis-Dreyfus really does make a fool out of herself with her ridiculous accent and hideous singing (not that Carey's is good, but it's tolerable). The real strength of this show lies in the performances of its supporting players. Brent Spiner is phenomenal as Stromboli (unfortunately he only sings one number), and Rene Auberjonois does a fine job as well. The music itself ranges from passionate and moving(Empty Heart and Since I Gave My Heart Away) to upbeat and playful(Bravo, Stromboli! and satisfaction Guaranteed). I recommend this underappreciated musical to anyone looking for a show with great music without the heavier social implications of Rent(not that there's anything wrong with Rent, but I wouldn't recommend it for my five year old). The movie is also worth getting, especially to see Brent Spiner do some funny things and to see how funny Drew Carey's hair looks.
