Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Alice in Wonderland

Alice is a girl with a big imagination. One day she sees a white rabbit running along shouting "I'm late." She follows him into a hole, and arrives in Wonderland. There she sees many strange creatures like a Chesire Cat, a Mad Hatter, and a very emotional Queen. Overall, her main goal is to return home. Not the best of the Disney cartoons, but still enjoyable to watch now and then.

The review of this Movie prepared by Estefan Ellison

This made-for-TV movie was brought to you by the same people who brought you MERLIN with Sam Neil. Alice (Majorino) ran away from her parent's garden party because she didn't want to perform. She's minding her own business when a rabbt comes out of nowhere-SPORTING A WAISTCOAT AND POCKET WATCH! Naturally, Alice finds this strange so she followes the rabbit and finds herself in a world where normal rules of right and wrong don't apply. Where Mad Hatters (Short) and March Hares have perpetual tea parties and playing cards are ruled by a bratty Queen of Hearts (Richerdson). Where Chechire Cats (Goldberg) grin and Mock Turtles (Wilder) sing. Alice must find a way back to her own world and escape these mad creatures.
