Before I get to the bad, let me acknowledge the good in “Pinocchio.” Film do contains moments that are not terrible. Cynthia Erivo’s Green Fairy, whose magic grants Pinocchio charisma, empathy, and warmth is hard to find elsewhere in the film. Jaquita Ta’le’s performance as a puppeteer who befriends Pinocchio is also a bright spot in a story filled with colorful characters whose personalities are as fragile and superficial as the producer’s visual effects.
Other good things? For those of you who like Easter eggs, Geppetto’s cuckoo clock might do something for you, as we see renditions of everything from “Snow White” to “Roger Rabbit” in the design. of the clock. However, for those of you who don’t like overly obvious references to Disney’s IP catalog, these references might just be another thing that makes you want to throw the remote at your television.
One of the best things I can say about the movie is that it probably won’t be one your kids will want to watch over and over again, which means you won’t have to either. It starts slow, with Geppetto (a confused Tom Hanks) having 20 minutes of rambling explanations about how he misses his dead wife and son and how he makes a wooden puppet to fill his lonely days . Why didn’t he create a new son in a more conventional way? As Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Jiminy Cricket later explained in his horrible fake Southern accent, poor Geppetto didn’t make much sense. Sorry if you – as I did after observing Jiminy – get some images in your head that you never asked for. I’m just grateful that Geppetto decided to make a wooden replica of his dead son rather than his wife, even though Geppetto’s version of “Lars and the Real Girl” is supposed to be a set. more engaging and thought-provoking movies to watch.
