The pitch: Alice returns to Wonderland to help the Mad Hatter. He has fallen into a deep depression over his missing family. It is a race with Time to save him.
The formula: Go down the rabbit hole with “Alice in Wonderland.” Off with the head of “The Time Machine.” Don’t be late for a very important date with “Borat.”
Go see it: If you have never read the original Lewis Carroll novel.
Don’t go see it: If you think the film should be loyal to the book.
A look back: This film explains why the Red Queen has such a big head. And, it is not from reading good reviews of this movie.
