* Does anyone else get the impression that this was Disney trying to make a [[TheChroniclesOfNarnia Narnia]] film with the SerialNumbersFiledOff after losing the rights? Because I gotta be honest; art direction aside, it doesn't really ''feel'' like a Tim Burton film, what with the fairly generic "epic fantasy" plot thrown in about a chosen one and a big epic battle at the end. Plus, the Dormouse has basically been made into a DistiffCounterpart for Reepicheep.

* Why does Tim Burton choose to ignore practically everything from the books? I swear, it seems a lot of Alice adaptations (apart from ones such as ''{{Pandora Hearts}}'') just skim through the first book and the watch the Disney film. I was expecting Burton to make a film that would turn around all the misconceptions people have about the characters. Instead, he enforced them. Why did he even bother making it?

** What always puzzled me about that part was that the singing voices of the cards are dubbed by the Mellomen, a singing ''quartet.'' But there are only ''three'' cards...

** Going back to the first question: might be a case of FridgeBrilliance invoking TooDumbToLive. ''Yes'', it was foolish to think they could sing a song about it and go unnoticed. And what happens next just after they sang the song about how they're secretly painting the roses red ? The angry Queen of Hearts rushes to them "for no apparent reason". * What always puzzled me about that part was that the singing voices of the cards are dubbed by the Mellomen, a singing ''quartet.''

** They've been ruled by a tyrant for the last several years, and the first hint of their salvation has just arrived - of course they're going to assume the best possible outcome.

Added DiffLines:
** I liked it, as well. I don't think it's great, and there's a lot of parts that are kind of weird and not that good, in my opinion, but I think it's probably the thing I like most out of everything ''Alice In Wonderland''-related.

*** During [[ThurlRavenscroft Thurl Ravenscroft's]] first solo, it does look like a fourth card is randomly showing up. Doesn't explain how only three of them can sing four voices all together, though.

*** Quite. Moreover, Carroll first became acquainted with Alice's older brother, rather than Alice herself. Yet ''he'' doesn't get a book, because ''he'' wasn't a ten-year-old child who asked Charles Dodgson to write down the clever stories.

* The Oraculum. With it there are no shortage of plotholes we could probably think up. Why were the characters having some sort of celebration when that scroll probably had a nice shiny picture showing the Jabberwock attack them?

** That would probably result in the Jabberwock going on a RoaringRampageofRevenge. Bad idea.

** They missed a rare opportunity to exploit the surreal and insane nature of the setting by having her defeat the Queen in a surreal and insane way. Oh, well, ''Film/VoyageOfTheDawnTreader'' established that filmwriters can't imagine a 'fantasy' movie that doesn't involve the heroes waving swords around.
