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.

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.

Geppetto is a 2000 Disney live-action, musical retelling of the Pinocchio legend, through the eyes of his father, Geppetto(Drew Carey, Who's Line Is It Anyway?, The Price Is Right). The film is about Geppetto(Carey) being friendly to the children of an Italian village is wishing for a boy, and one night, his wish came true all thanks to the Blue Fairy(Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Seinfeld, The New Adventures of Old Christine) and Pinocchio comes to life. and soon Geppetto learns about being a father. Also, when a evil puppet master(Brent Spiner, Star Trek: Nemesis)hears about Pinocchio, he would do anything go take him from Geppetto. R&B superstar Usher, Rene Auberjonois(Star Trek: Deep Space Nine)and Wayne Brady(Crossover, Let's Make A Deal) also stars in this amazingly delightful family comedy. Although this DVD has no chapter index, or special features, it did little to diminish the quality of this movie. Geppetto is one of the best Disney live-action films to enjoy. :)

This came very quickly. I have not opened it. I bought it as part of a Pinocchio- themed basket to raise money for a non-profit. This version of Pinocchio is based on the play, "My Son Pinocchio."

As three stars above say "it's ok". If you haven't seen it, don't spend the money. Try to see it for free first. I only bought it for curiosity sake and to add to my collection of Disney DVD's. Drew Carey does his best and can sing and dance, but Julia Louis Dreyfus does a bad imitation of Billie Burke and the songs are not up to standard.

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 ›
