OLIVER TWIST (1997)

Another product from The Wonderful World of Disney that aired on Sunday nights on ABC in the 90s. Disney’s take on the classic novel wasn’t too bad. Richard Dreyfuss was almost unrecognizable in his Fagin getup. We liked Elijah Wood as Dodger, even though his accent was off. But despite a good cast, we don’t think this is a movie that everyone needs to rush to watch. Younger kids may get bored and lost in the story. It was interesting enough for us and we are glad we have seen it once. I have not read the book so I am not sure how it holds up to the original tale. If you have read it and are a fan, then I think you should check this version out. See what you think. Just know that it’s a made for TV movie and at times the production shows it.
