Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

Younger fans of the Animaniacs cartoon series will happily lose themselves in this pantomime, but the grown-ups are going to miss the rapid-fire wit and anarchic unpredictability that makes the TV show so watchable. The gang now resides in the hamlet of Acme Falls and are so cruelly ruled by King Salazar that Wakko appeals to the heavens for help, unleashing the entire populace on a cross-country dash to be the first to touch a fallen wishing star and make their dreams come true. It's as though It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World had been turned into a musical fairy tale.
