The imagination of nine-year-old Bart Collins comes to life in this fantasy film filled with surreal landscapes and tongue-twisting rhymes. When he is lulled to sleep by the monotony of his piano lessons, he dreams of a castle ruled by his eccentric piano teacher, Dr. Terwilliker. Dr. T wants to prove that his method of teaching piano is the best method in the world. After he banishes all other musical instruments to the dungeon, he lures 500 boys to perform on the biggest grand piano ever built.

I like all the Dr. Seuss DVD's. I recommend this for all ages. It is not too violent or sexual for kids. It has moral lessons for children.

My 10 year old loved it but my 6 and 4 year old found them a little scary.

For adult, the cheap filming studio is a real turnoff! It's as good as a highschool stage! For children, however this could be an enchanting movie. They would like it.
For positive points, the acting of main actors are quite respectable and good. I particularly like its music and a scene with a simple but well coordinated Tango dance.
It could compare to Disney's production if it pay more attention (and money) to the filming stage.
