Too much cartoon violence in tale of classic trio.

what parents need to know

Parents need to know that this Disney cartoon involves a major villain and his four sidekicks who battle against the three classic characters of Mickey Mouse, Goofy, and Donald Duck. The movie is packed with cartoon violence, including fist fights, sword battles, and one scene where Mickey seems to die from drowning. At one point, when Goofy is on the verge of being thrown into the ocean to die, a shot of many skeletons under the water appears. An underlying theme is the romance between Princess Minnie and Mickey the Musketeer. In the end, each of the musketeers finds love and exchanges several exaggerated kisses with his partner. The female characters are pretty helpless, and the movie revolves around saving and kidnapping the princess and her lady-in-waiting.

what families can talk about

  • Families can talk about the theme of the movie, which is the famous chant of the Three Musketeers: "All for one and one for all." What does this mean? How does this idea play out in the movie? How does the idea of "all for one" work in real life?
  • Talk about damsels in distress. Why are so many movies about male characters saving female characters? Can you think of other damsel-in-distress movies?
  • Can you imagine this movie if the genders were reversed -- Minniesaving Mickey? What elements would need to change to make that conceptwork, and why?

Rotten: See Richard Lester's one instead of this bland adaptation of the Dumas classic.

Audience Reviews

4 stars

I was surprised at how much I liked this little movie. The animation looks great, the characters are true to their classic selves, the voices sound like you expect them to sound. The save-the-princess story is classic and engaging. I don't remember the Dumas book well enough to be able to compare (it's literally been decades since I looked at it), but what does it matter? The movie is fun! Four stars only because it is short, and because it is clearly a kid thing. I enjoyed it quite a bit, but I probably wouldn't seek it out again.

Such a disappointment, pretty predictable, offer very little charm, there was nothing memorable either.

Enjoyable for everyone, mostly little kids, as this is the family-friendly version of the tale starring Disney's classic trio, which fitted perfect for the title role.(B)
