We gave it a C+

Petulant Jennifer Connelly wants David Bowie’s imaginary goblin king to kidnap her annoying half-brother. When her wish comes true, the wannabe Alice tumbles into a crazy-mazey wonderland to rescue the tyke. Think cranky ogres, scarfed worms, and Fraggle rockin’ musical numbers. LEGACY By today’s F/X standards, Labyrinth looks Sesame Street-primitive. Yet the irony-free human/Muppet mix never worked anyway. For Goths, geeks, and Henson apologists only. C+
