  1. Stian Gledje Bekkvik's rating of the film The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T.

    The first half is beyond brilliant and reminds me that surrealism always did belong to the kids!

  2. jenstor's rating of the film The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T.

    DR Seuss made a Suspiria for kids. What a piece

  3. NICOLE86's rating of the film The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T.

    Yeah its got an outdated and silly story line, but I just love the visuals. Really a great children's movie that needs more love and respect.

  4. Michael Harbour's rating of the film The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T.

    A game effort at making a live action Dr. Suess movie. The real world just isn't up to creating in front of a camera what Mr Geisel could draw on the page. The action is slowed by being acted out before us rather than leaping ahead at the turn of a page. As with The Wizard of Oz and Harry Potter, our young hero is rewarded for surviving the peculiar adventure with a return to a comforting, co...http://bit.ly/NXHarU

  8. Karthik's rating of the film The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T.

    What a rich and bizarre stew of the terrors of childhood, exuberant artificiality and wildly inventive (and sometimes sloppily executed) bits of business! O if only Momma in her flight from the Culture Vulture had ended up with someone a touch more interesting than the pudgy ole' all-American sport... but let me not ask too much of this already heady tutti frutti

  9. i hate movies's rating of the film The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T.

    can we please talk about how many times the simpsons has referenced this movie? it's actually funny. the song that doctor t. sings about his clothes is basically "see my vest." and the little kid is named bart! and has a spiky hand hat! and a million other things, really. anyway, this movie rules.

  10. sayurkangkung's rating of the film The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T.

    Not as good as another fantasy musical i've seen (The Wizard of Oz, Willy Wonka), but it still fell to the "oh so entertaining" category one.

  11. Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T.

    Bizarre children's fantasy written by Dr. Suess. Lavish and outlandish set and costume design are a Dr. Suess book come to life, and the incredibly imaginative story makes for some great moments. But even at 88 minutes it's just too long, often bogged down by tedious and unnecessary song and dance numbers. As dated as it is, worth watching for the imaginative visuals alone.
