    In the end you feel like you've been taken on a pleasing, professionally run tourist trip that let you enjoy the sights without ever really inhabiting the land.
  2. 75
    Will remind filmgoers that one of the chief pleasures of going to the movies is a good old-fashioned swoon
  3. 63
    The kind of unsophisticated family entertainment they supposedly don't make anymore.
  4. 60
    A musical number or two might have balanced the overdetermined politics and spectacle in this version.
  5. It pales in comparison to its two classic predecessors, and also just generally feels like one too many trips to the well.
  6. Before it runs off track--it does have some spectacular moments.
  7. Colorful and a passable drama, one that highlights the difficulties of cross-cultural love affairs and the exoticism of the Third World.

    This is a great movie. It`s a timeless great story you can always watch.Great chemistry between the characters.When watching this movie I felt like Anna taking an adventure to another land.If you want to see the King and I without the singing this is it for you. Expand
