The Forbidden Kingdom|
A little bit 'Wizard of Oz'... a little bit 'Harry Potter'... Jackie Chan's usual charm... and Jet Li actually smiles more than I have ever seen him do in character! Can't beat that. :) Scenery is GORGEOUS... the American scenes were actually set up in China, and you can tell... everything is too clean. :) I fell in love with it to the extent that I even bought a copy of 'Monkey'.

Thanks to the writing, a basically crap plot ends up being right up there with Rear Window.
Most POIGNANT bit o' camp you'll ever see.
"The classic stage hit gets the Hollywood treatment in the story of Elwood P. Dowd who makes friends with a spirit taking the form of a human-sized rabbit named Harvey that only he sees (and a few privileged others on occasion also.) After his sister tries to commit him to a mental institution, a comedy of errors ensues. Elwood and Harvey become the catalysts for a family mending its wounds and for romance blossoming in unexpected places."

Some folks have the luxury of living each day to the fullest, but for Agnes every day is a grueling struggle for survival: Her mother is strung out on drugs, her home has been overrun by degenerates, and her only father figure is a pimp. For Agnes and her two younger sisters, this particular day will be marked by both tragedy and triumph..."
