Editorial Reviews

Disney magic brings to life this brand-new comedic and musical retelling of the truth-stretching puppet who miraculously transforms into a real boy! Drew Carey (THE DREW CAREY SHOW) stars as the man whose dearest wish to be a father is granted by the sparkling Blue Fairy (SEINFELD'S Julia Louis-Dreyfus). Original music combines with timeless classic songs as Geppetto encounters the everyday challenges of raising a child. When Pinocchio is lured away to join the sneaky Stromboli and the Pleasure Island troublemakers, Geppetto discovers what it really means to be a father, and must embark on a dangerous quest to reunite with his missing son. Your entire family will love this heartwarming and fun new Disney musical production of one of the world's greatest stories!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wish upon this star... September 18, 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
If Jiminy Cricket were around, he'd definitely give two white-gloved thumbs up to this delightful twist on the old Pinocchio story. With a breathy singing voice and gentle, good humor, Drew Carey plays Geppetto to perfection. The slightly tubby toymaker goes from know-it-all, would-be dad to father-in-training as the plot spins with unexpected twists and turns. Julia Louis-Dreyfus sparkles as the feisty and frolicsome Blue Fairy. Pinocchio (Seth Adkins) is a very good as the wooden kid who's completely overwhelmed by the possibility of becoming a "real boy." Brent Spiner portrays Stromboli with an entirely appropriate flair for the melodramatic. He is wickedly hilarious and a standout singer as well. Together the cast mixes up a magical moment that everyone from children to grandparents will enjoy. Geppetto will especially touch a parent's heart. This is classic entertainment from the Walt Disney Company the way Walt Disney used to do things. Don't hesitate to add this to your child's video collection. It belongs there.

4.0 out of 5 stars interesting musical spin on the classic fairytale December 11, 2004
Format:VHS Tape
GEPPETTO is an interesting musical spin on the well-known tale of PINOCCHIO. Stephen Schwartz delivers a handsome-if average score, with fine performances from Drew Carey and Julia Louis-Dreyfus in the lead roles.

GEPPETTO wisely doesn't try to emulate Disney's landmark 1940 animation version of PINOCCHIO, but instead retells the tale's events from the perspective of Pinocchio's loving creator and father Geppetto. Julia Louis-Dreyfus plays the sparkling and eccentric Blue Fairy, with Seth Adkins as Pinocchio. Among the supporting cast are Broadway talents Brent Spiner and Ana Gasteyer. Popular singing star Usher also appears in the "Pleasure Island" scene. Stephen Schwartz provides the score which features the catchy "Just Because It's Magic".

Drew Carey (who also served as the Executive Producer) has a warm and winning singing voice, and is just about perfect in the title role. A great original musical from Disney.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bravo Geppetto! May 26, 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I didn't know Drew could sing! But he does a really good job, just like everyone in this TV movie. Any Disney fan would love it, and I think anyone else too. I watched it in the first place just because I liked the whole cast. But then it turned out to be really good and I watched it over and over (because I taped it). Just be warned: It will have you singing the rest of the day. My favortite songs were "Just because" and "I gave my heart away" plus all the others. This is a definite buy for anyone who can believe that miracles are possible...

3.0 out of 5 stars OK FOR FAMILY May 29, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
While this is a nice diversion for the children, and features the usual superb Disney productions values (Gepetto's village is a dream version of some Italian side street from a beautiful theme park), it is not among Disney's best. Drew Carey exudes much enthusiasm but is simply not up to the vocal challenge, and Julia Louis Dreyfuss is an odd choice to play the Blue Fairy. The makeup on the small wooden boy is frightening and strange; I think the makeup artists missed the boat on what they might have been going for. The contemporary spin on the Pinocchio story often feels strained to remain PC; Stephen Schwartz is not at the top of his game with songs that, while engaging within the film, do not remain in your heart or memory. Still, given the usual dreck produced for children and their parents, this video is engaging, sweetly conveyed and full of eye-popping fun for the youngsters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! What a great movie! May 7, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Disney did a great job with this movie. Great storyline, great music, great cast. I think it might be a bit scary for younger children, so I wouldn't let my little one watch it by himself--but certainly it's not any scarier than any other Disney movie and the heartfelt message outweighs any drawbacks. The son-daddy relationship is heartwarming. This would make a great father's day gift for meaningful father-son time!

5.0 out of 5 stars Disney's New Classic May 9, 2000
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
A very impressive musical. The songs are top-rate, and the actors surprise fans with their vocal skills. Brent Spiner and Rene Auberjonois are stand-outs in a solid cast. Stromboli (Spiner) is a hilarious villian (with a fantastic singing voice). Drew Carey and Seth Adkins have real chemistry as Geppetto and Pinocchio and give very charming performances. This movie is destined to be classic.

Format:DVD
I remember first watching this movie when I was seven years old...or eight. I did like it, although I did not really understand it (I was a little kid and I never understood movies as a little kid). Now at the age of 14, I got reunited with it. Sadly, I forgot how I did. When I finally recieved the opportunity the watch it for the first united time, I was so impressed and pleased... with everything! The acting, the singing, the music, everything!! Drew Carey, especially, did a fantastic job playing Geppetto. When I first saw him in the film, I was like, "OH MY GOSH" For a comedian to play a serious character with a beautiful singing voice, he did a wonderful job. He looked good, too. To see how I feel about him now, you'd think I'd have a crush on him, which of course I don't. And it wasn't just Carey who was fantastic, it was everyone else as well. Julia Louis-Dreyfus better work her voice because she can sing! And Brent Spiner, oh he can DEFINITELY SING!! He is a fantastic opera singer and actor. Did I mention that he has a cool accent? And the famous Pinnochio himself, Seth Adkins; he was wonderful. I really liked that he was chosen to be Pinnochio because he had so much energy and he sounded just like the original Pinnochio himself! And Usher, my buddy, he can really, really sing! The superstar sings like an angel! All of the songs were just incredible, especially the last song, "Since I Gave My Heart Away". I felt like crying, but I ended up holding it in. I will admit that I was a little sad...until the happy ending part came. I would recommend this movie to family and friends...and anybody who is willing to open their eyes to the valuable lesson that they can learn from this fantastic experience. All you jealous people and haters out there, let me tell ya'll something. Read more ›
