When I first saw this in the theatre, I absolutely loved it! I was drawn to the bright colors and whimsical feeling of the film. I immediately went out and bought the soundtrack. Years later, I still really like it, although I had forgotten that there is a small amount of violence. That being said, its still a great movie and I'm not quite sure why so many critics and movie watchers hated it. Maybe this film is more appealing to children at heart. I definitely fall into that category!

The film's success or failure hinges on what exactly the viewer thinks of Robin Williams and his style of comedy. For me, personally, I can to see past the many problems of the movie and just enjoy Williams being an overgrown kid. He has a bunch of goofy lines that work great with his role as the mastermind behind a toy factory.

At the same time, though, the side characters act in painfully cheesy ways and the overall plot is seriously weird. It's not a film for everyone. I recommend it if somebody has a high tolerance for camp and kitsch. It's flawed but enjoyable.

One of the worst movies of the 90s! And I saw it in the theater.

I watched the whole movie and I am still scratching my head. Weird and awful. One word: flop.

All I can say is "bizarre", Robin "trys" to be funny but with that script it really was killing a professional actor, the rest of the cast were like cardboard cut-outs.
