Trivia

Rob Marshall was inspired to do a film version of "Into the Woods" after President Barack Obama quoted one of the musical's most popular songs, "No One is Alone", during a memorial service on the 10th anniversary of September 11th terrorist attacks. He said to the families of the victims, "You are not alone. No one is alone." Though the reference was likely unintentional, Marshall stated that the reference made the musical relevant and saw it as "a fairytale for the post-9/11 generation." See more »

A good adaptation of a fantastic musical, the rating does not do it justice.
3 October 2016 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed the movie a lot, it has been many years since i saw "Into the Woods" as a live musical and the film was a nice reminder of why i loved the story so much back then and still do.

In short: It's DEFINITELY not for everyone and i think that is reflected in the very harsh, partially unjust ratings and comments. The adaptation is very close to the original and executed beautifully though and fans will have a good time watching it.

If you enjoyed the original musical or "dramatic comedy musicals" in general then i recommend watching it.

If you expect some Tim Burton-esque "Alice through the Looking Glass" film you will be disappointed because that is NOT what this is despite what the trailer might suggest.

8/10 but i understand that it is only enjoyable for a very specific audience (and definitely not for kids or most teens!).
