YMMV / Geppetto

Go To

  • Awesome Music: The whole soundtrack. The cast can really sing! As an added bonus, the musical song score was written by Stephen Schwartz, the person responsible for such hits as "Defying Gravity", "Corner of the Sky", and the lyrics to "Colors of the Wind"!
  • Ensemble Dark Horse: Brent Spiner's Stromboli for serving up a glorious helping of Ham and Cheese.
  • Funny Moments: After the Blue Fairy turns Pinochhio into a real boy:
    Stromboli: A real boy! Who needs a real boy? Nobody will pay to see a real boy. You can't do this to me!
    Blue Fairy: Of course I can. I am the Blue Fairy.
    • Cue Blue Fairy kicking Stromboli's ass with her wand.

  • Ham and Cheese: Again, Brent Spiner's over-the-top performance is one of the film's few bright spots.
  • Heartwarming Moments:
  • Never Live It Down:
    • The movie was a notorious bomb that dogged Drew Carey for a few years; even the Whose Line Is It Anyway? gang took several shots at it.
    • Wayne Brady, another Whose Line cast member, seems to have escaped the same fate. Usher too, obviously.
  • One-Scene Wonder: Wayne Brady as Lezarno the Magician; Rene Auberjonois as Professor Buonrigazzo; Usher as the Ringleader.
  • Tear Jerker:
    • Near the end, when Stromboli attempts to take Pinocchio away, most of the song Since I Gave My Heart Away.
    • In the same scene, when Geppetto learns that the Blue Fairy can't help him any longer, he makes another wish—he wants her to transform him into "wood, or stone, or clay," because he can't bear the thought of losing his son. Yes—Geppetto is wishing for death.


How well does it match the trope?
