      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Roberto Benigni misfires wildly with this adaptation of Pinocchio, and the result is an unfunny, poorly-made, creepy vanity project.

      Susan Stark Detroit News Rated: 1/4 Mar 10, 2007 Full Review Jonathan Rosenbaum Chicago Reader The recut American version is truly awful, but a good 75 percent of the awfulness is attributable to Miramax, the film's distributor. Jan 5, 2007 Full Review Edward Guthmann San Francisco Chronicle What can one say about a balding 50-year-old actor playing an innocent boy carved from a log? Rated: 1/4 Jan 3, 2003 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy Joyless, idiotic, annoying, heavy-handed, visually atrocious, and often downright creepy. Rated: 1/4 Dec 18, 2019 Full Review Renee Schonfeld Common Sense Media Live-action dubbed puppet story is creepy and lacks humor. Rated: 1/5 Feb 22, 2012 Full Review Eric D.

      Alexandre Emmanuel m Perturbadora, aburrida, mala Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 06/18/24 Full Review Ethan G Creepy and stupid, this bland adaption of the classic "Pinocchio" story is weird, and not in a unique or entertaining way. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 09/03/23 Full Review Jeffrey M Pinocchio ( 2002) was a really good movie. It was really funny at points, and even thought Roberto Benenni was a older guy when he played Pinocchio, he did a wonderful job at doing everything in the movie. Pinocchio (2002) is a very underrated movie. This movie is much better than people say it is. For critics, this movie got a 0%, and for the critics, this is one of the 10 worst movie ever. For the audience this movie got a 33 %. This movie needs higher rating. What a good remake. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 06/11/23 Full Review Elvis D A diferencia de la versión animada de Disney, esta adaptación esta mas aferrada al relato original. Claro que a estas alturas es muy difícil poder opacar al clásico animado que Disney nos trajo, pero aun así esta adaptación merece tener algo de atención a pesar de no haber recurrido a más efectos especiales para crear una marioneta viviente o darle vida a otros personajes no humanos. Al menos las intenciones de Roberto Benigni fueron buenas. Claramente no es mejor que la versión animada de Disney, pero se aprecia que hayan intentado hacer una adaptación más aferrada al libro. Mi calificación para esta película es un 8/10. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/10/23 Full Review What, 0%? I can only think of it as a delightful and entertaining story by Roberto Benigni. But maybe that's because I don't see it as a Pinocchio story. How old is Benigni? And he is obviously a human being.
