Pinocchio is one of the most iconic fairy tale characters of all time. He debuted in the 1883 children's novel, The Adventures of Pinocchio, written by Italian writer Carlo Collodi. He was a young, wooden puppet made by Geppetto, a woodcarver from Italy who wanted to make the son he never had. Upon creation, Pinocchio came to life and was able to walk and talk like a real boy. Because of that, he made it his dream to become a real boy. He would have his problems, like his nose would grow if he told a lie. However, with the help of a talking cricket he befriends, Pinocchio proved himself worthy and received his wish in the end.

The Adventures of Pinocchio has been adapted many times over the past 132 years. One of the most beloved adaptations came from Disney's 1940 animated classic, Pinocchio. It is a timeless movie that has been passed down to every generation. There was no need for anyone to top that adaptation in film.

Unfortunately, in the source material's country of origin, one filmmaker wanted to make a movie on Pinocchio from an Italian's perspective. To do a remake of a movie that was made in America, but was based on a story from your country, is okay to do. Just keep it in your country. Roberto Benigni's Pinocchio didn't. Released in 2002, Pinocchio was the most disasterous adaptation to ever come to the United States. It got slaughtered by everyone, it only made $3 million in the box office, and it received 6 Razzie nominations. Where do I begin explaining this atrocity?

Let's start with the director himself, Roberto Benigni, who also plays the title character. Roberto Benigni grew up on the talents of Charles Chaplin, Buster Keaton, and Peter Sellers, and he became recognized as an improvisational actor who eventually developed a career in directing.

My kids (especially my 8 year old son) loved this movie! We watched it after we had read the Classic Starts Pinnochio. It follows the book pretty closely. The dubbing of English bothered me, but my kids didn't care.

Benigni plays Pinocchio brilliantly. Some may think that a middle-aged man playing a small boy is strange, but Benigni's enthusiasm and humor make him a perfect fit for the role. In my opinion, Benigni is an amazing actor. He was absolutely wonderful in Life is Beautiful.

Not sure why but my kids love this movie and ask for it repeatedly. I actually purchased the digital copy of it. I do agree with a lot of the reviewers here. It's absurd to see a grown man act the part. Really not sure why Benigni would risk his career over this one, but for the sake of my kids I'm glad he did. :-)

I couldn't quit watching this movie, not because I loved it, but couldn't believe how bad it was. Roberto Baneigni reminded me more of John Wayne Gacy than a puppet. Let me sum it up for you: a 50 year old man with a 5 o'clock shadow and huge tuffets of arm hair poking out of a pair of pink onesy pajamas with ruffles and a pointed hat is supposed to make us feel all warm hearted?

This is an abortion of a film that is like watching a train wreck in slow motion with many, many casualties. It's so bad, it's almost worth watching just to see how bad it is.
