A present-day idyllic kingdom where the benevolent teenage son of King Adam and Queen Belle offers a chance of redemption for the troublemaking offspring of Disney's classic villains: Cruella De Vil (Carlos), Maleficent (Mal), the Evil Queen (Evvie) and Jafar (Jay).


Absolutely the worst movie.

Very good movie overall, highly recommended. Most of the negative reviews don't have any merit and are all pollitically based. Give this movie a chance at least, and it might give you a different perspective.

By the time the dramatic fireworks start popping off, each one feels earned.

The story, direction, characters, and writing/dialogue is akin to taking a tranquilizer shot to the neck, but everything else was so well done.

This movie is so good! The songs are so great! The story is great! I've rewatched this movie several times and loved it every time. Yes, sometimes the lines are cheesy but that is all part of the musical experience. Watch with your family or all by yourself ...either way it will bring a smile to your face.

I know to keep my expectations moderated before going into any TV movie. Especially something that is targeted towards a young audience. As such, I knew to expect a certain level of cheese and corn in this movie. But, being that it is still obviously a "Disney" production, I did have some expectations. What I got from watching this movie.. was nothing but a mass of disappointment at the Disney corporation and what they think of our children today. They took iconic Disney villains and robbed them of almost all of their dignity and reduced them to the level of a running gag and a cliché. The concept of featuring a plot and story around the children of these characters does have merit and with a well written, semi-mature plot, could have been worthy of a full release.. which is not the case here. The dialogue and plot seem to have been written by a child in middle school. Many of the costumes and outfits for the characters would be better placed at the bottom of a thrift shop bargain bin. How can Disney put their well-known heroes and villains in crowns that are obviously made out of plastic and tin foil!? Some of these actors may have some creds when it comes to acting.. but almost none of them can sing or dance. Some songs are so badly lip synched that you can see the actor "singing" the words before you hear them. Disney please, PLEASE stop thinking that just because something is made for kids.. it has to appear and sound like it was done by KIDS. I would not recommend this movie to anyone except as something to amuse yourself with when you're drunk or to entertain yourself by mocking it.

As you'll read in the other reviews, it's very cheesy. 90's cheesy. You'll know exactly how the story plays out in the first 10 minutes.One thing I really enjoyed was the subversion of the deception revealed trope. You can't use a love potion on someone who's already in love with you! (I don't know if that counts as a spoiler, but I'll check the box anyway.My only complaint was why was Cruella trapped on an island of villains with Jafar, Maleficent, and the Evil Queen from Snow White? Wouldn't she just go to prison? Granted she is the most evil of all. There's a special place in hell for people who are cruel to animals, but my point is, she's not magically or physically strong. They could just lock her in a normal prison.Overall, it's not a bad movie. It's rated G, so it's extremely tame.

I watched this film with my niece because she had been dying to see it for ages. After hearing mixed reviews, I enjoyed it more than I thought I would. The songs are fun, the story is good and although the characters could have been slightly better, Id say overall it was worth the watch.There were a few things that kinda niggled for me though.1. Belle is meant to be all sweetness and seeing the good in people when others cant, yet as Queen she doesn't want to see good in the 'Lost Kids' (as my niece calls them) just because their parents were Villains? Felt like a character flaw to me. She didn't give them a chance to be good until the very end, when they proved they were good. So that's not really giving them a chance...its just accepting what she can see in front of her. If she hadn't given Beast a chance and seen the good in him before he fully showed that side, it would have been a very different story..2. Preppy Prince's trying to rap really didn't work for me. It kinda made me cringe anytime a rap started, it just didn't feel right for them and they didn't look right doing it. I enjoyed the songs, I just feel like they shouldn't have tried to add rap into them.3. Although I liked the songs and they were catchy enough for some of them to still be stuck in my head, I feel like they over-edited the singing too much, so it didn't look right when they were singing. It didn't look natural. Which I understand may sound stupid as its just a film, but it didn't actually look like it was them singing at some points. Kristen Chenoweth is an amazing singer, but even her singing was edited far too much for me to enjoy it as I normally would.4. Jays personality is far more like Aladin than Jaffar. I like Jay, but it didn't feel believable that he was Jaffar's son. Maybe its something about growing up on the Island and being the 'Bad Boy', I don't know. Of course this could be explained if I read the books, which I think I might have to do as I did enjoy the story.But all in all, I think this is an enjoyable film that is definitely worth a watch for a chilled day.
