saw this last night , I really liked it , and there are moments where its an absolute delight .
the best things are - the china doll and the talking monkey , they just steal the movie , it does wander off track a bit in the final 3rd , I wasn't very interested in the Witches and their feuds .
it looked great too . Franco was good , but I couldn't help wondering if they wrote the role for Jonny Depp .
I would have to agree with that especially the china doll.
I thought the set up before he goes to Oz was a bit slow as well. They had to do it, but I don't think it worked too well.
