In the Land of Oz, the Emerald City's co-leaders, the Scarecrow, Tin Woodman, and the Cowardly Lion, discover that an evil Jester has stolen the broomstick of his sister, the late Wicked Witch of the West, and taken control over the Flying Monkeys. With Oz's future at stake, the Scarecrow decides to use his invention called the Rainbow Mover to summon Dorothy Gale to save the kingdom again. However, flying monkeys invade the castle and force the trio out the window. In Kansas, Dorothy's farm has been wrecked by a tornado, leaving it in disrepair. A sleazy man claiming to be a government appraiser arrives and condemns the farmhouse, handing the Gales an eviction notice. Dorothy discovers people all across town have been handed the same notices and are moving on. Dorothy and Toto encounter a rainbow which transports them to Oz, but not to the Emerald City as intended.

Unusual Credit Style: In the closing credits, there are numerous entries for co-producers & other "producer" positions that list both husband & wife for each credit entry, such as "Jack & Jill Jones". Some credits are simply listed as a family unit. One such co-producer is listed as "The Ross Family". It is rare that credits are given in groupings of families. Most credits are a single person's name. See more »
I wasn't expecting a lot but this movie is one of the worst movies I've ever seen at the theater. If you are a hard-core fan of the Oz/Dorothy stories you might like it but if you are expecting a movie that is even remotely coherent you will be disappointed.
It's fantasy and it's geared toward kids, I get that, but the story and dialog here are so lame that even young kids will struggle to find this movie entertaining. It tries to mimic "Robots" at times (which IS a good movie) and tries to sort of be a Disney-esque musical but it fails to be anything other than just a really bad movie.
This should have been a straight-to-DVD release if it was even released at all. It features big named talent (Patrick Stewart, Dan Akroyd, Kelsey Grammar, Jim Belushi,etc.) but with story this poorly-written nobody could have saved this movie.
