Into the Woods

Critics Consensus

On the whole, this Disney adaptation of the Sondheim classic sits comfortably at the corner of Hollywood and Broadway -- even if it darkens to its detriment in the final act.

Movie Info

As the result of the curse of a once-beautiful witch (Meryl Streep), a baker (James Corden) and his wife (Emily Blunt) are childless. Three days before the rise of a blue moon, they venture into the forest to find the ingredients that will reverse the spell and restore the witch's beauty: a milk-white cow, hair as yellow as corn, a blood-red cape, and a slipper of gold. During their journey, they meet Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel and Jack, each one on a quest to fulfill a wish.

Audience Reviews for Into the Woods

    Tiresome and badly paced adaptation of what is apparently a highly regarded musical. Emily Blunt shines, Johnny Depp and James Corden irritate. Not for me.

    While it loses steam in the second half, Into The Woods is a nearly faithful (albeit watered down) adaptation that works thanks to great performances - particularly from Streep, Blunt and Pine - and great, humable music.

    Rob Marshall's Into the Woods goes in, then manages to get lost. The integration of characters from multiple fairy tales is an intriguing concept and while the film starts off in amusing fashion, it loses its moxie. The jumps between characters and story arcs is mediocre at best, while plot details are lacking as the story pushes forward in time to get through its tale in 2 hours. The film's content is also more mature and dark than a family friendly atmosphere. A PG rating is too generous. 80-90% is singing. Even when musical numbers are not taking place, character dialogue is being sung. Fortunately, there are some catchy tunes that sink into the brain, but there are equally as much tiresome vocals exiting the speakers. The female leads are the highlight. Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, and Anna Kendrick liven the picture, when the blandness of James Corden and Chris Pine step on the stage. Into the Woods has some journey-full moments; just not enough to make it an exciting trek into the woods.

    The narrative is a mess, there are way too many songs, and the characters are two-dimensional. Nice production work though.
