I had high hopes for this miniseries, After all, "Tin Man" is one of my favorite miniseries ever, and this one stars Billy Boyd, Sean Astin, Jeffrey Combs and Christopher Lloyd.

Sadly, "The Witches of Oz" is a massive misfire right from the beginning -- it tries to be both an epic, intense adventure story and a kid-friendly all-you-need-is-love fairy tale at the same time. Lloyd, Boyd and a handful of other actors do what little they can to salvage the story, but the hammy acting, bad CGI and slapworthy ending make it impossible.

Budding writer Dorothy Gale (Paulie Rojas) is stunned when prominent agent Billie Westbrook (Eliza Swenson) develops an interest in the Oz books she's been writing with her friend Allen (Ari Zagaris). Dorothy and Allen move to New York City, unaware that the Wicked Witch of the West and her head-swapping minion Princess Langwidere (Mia Sara) are plotting against her.

Specifically, they want a key to a magic book which Dorothy had when she returned from Oz many years ago. But Dorothy has forgotten about her time in Oz, so she can't remember where she put the key. Along with Allen, her new buddy Bryan (Barry J. Ratcliffe) and love interest Nick (Boyd), she must find the key before the Witch has a chance to take over all worlds.

"The Witches of Oz" is a schizophrenic mess of a story. It wants to be a big, dark save-the-world story, but it also wants to be a kiddie-friendly family film. Even worse, it seems to have been made up as it went -- foreshadowing comes to naught (Nick's identity), important items go unmentioned until they're needed, and random characters pop out of the woodwork without warning.

Disclaimer: This is a review of the director's cut entitled "Dorothy and the Witches of Oz," which isn't available for purchase yet on Amazon. It was just out in select theaters. I received a screener for review.

The story follows Dorothy Gale (Paulie Rojas), a children's author continuing the Oz series. After her uncles death back in Kansas, Dorothy discovers that her stories were not from her imagination but from her own experiences in Oz. Now, the evil witches are in New York and looking for a key that Dorothy hid as a child. Only Dorothy and her friends can stop the Wicked Witch of the West from destroying both Oz and this reality.

Based on L. Frank Baum's books not the popular film starring Judy Garland, fans will notice the additional characters right away. And Dorothy's slippers are silver not Garland's ruby red. Christopher Lloyd as the Wizard was my biggest reason for seeing the film. He was fantastic. But I was happy to see other known faces as well such as Sean Astin and Ethan Embry as the cute, funny, and miniature Frick and Frack. And Jeffrey Combs has a brief but memorable performance as Dorothy's heartbroken father. Paulie Rojas as Dorothy is a bit wooden, but her sweetness and innocence is believable. And Eliza Swenson as Billie Westbrook was pure fun to watch in her complex role.

At first I was confused about the target audience. The mood seemed darker and suddenly violent, until I realized all of the action and fight scenes were stylized. Some of the monstrous creatures might be a bit scary for young children, but it's still only rated PG and is certainly a family movie.

My twelve year old daughter and I watched this one rainy afternoon. Yes, I agree with many reviews; it was a giant campy, cheese-fest. Often I couldn't understand the dialogue due to the blaring soundtrack "Muzak", but it was watchable if you aren't expecting a primo multimillion dollar blockbuster. I would describe it as mixture of ABC's Once Upon a Time and Disney Channels Wizards of Waverly Place. A little bit of dark drama with a bit of whimsy and a very low budget.
The story twists about how Dorothy ended up in present day were intriguing and I appreciated the effort to include characters from several of the Oz books. My daughter & I have our own theory as to the true identity of Nick Chopper. Which many viewers were led to believe that he was Dorothy's tin man but were confused when it seemed that he wasn't. We believe that Nick is Dorothy's tin man, but he still doesn't have a memory of it or how and why he is there, The tin man that fought the Gnome King was probably Captain Fyter, a second tin man introduced in a later book in L. Frank Baum's Oz series. Nick Chopper is the human name of The original tin man in the first book, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. So of course this is left as a mystery In The Witches of Oz, to be explained in a sequel. Yes, there is probably a sequel planned to answer all of those pesky unanswered plot holes & twists that everyone has been talking about. Although it's not the greatest miniseries ever, I will probably watch the sequel because I'm a sucker for anything OZ.
