"The Best Movie Premiering On Video This Year!"
-Scott Hettrick, LOS ANGELES TIMES SYNDICATE
From the filmmakers of the Academy Award-winning box office hit, The Prince Of Egypt, comes an all-new animated epic, Joseph: King Of Dreams. One of the most critically acclaimed films of the year, this inspiring musical adventure retells the classic story of a boy (voiced by Ben Affleck), with the extraordinary gift of seeing the future through his dreams. Winner of the Film Advisory Board Award of Excellence, Joseph: King Of Dreams is a timeless treasure for every generation, with five memorable new songs, sparkling animation and "storytelling at its best" (Alice O'Neil, Los Angeles Feature Syndicate). This family favorite is "destined to join The Prince Of Egypt and The Lion King as an instant classic (Bruce Kluger, Us Weekly).
"Epic and Grand!"
-Mike Trotman, FAMILY FUN
I bought this DVD with high hopes. It is a combination of two things I very much enjoy: animation and the story of Joseph. Sadly, this film fell short of my expectations. Though it wasn't exactly bad, it dragged quite a bit in spite of its subject matter and short length.
I was also a bit surprised to find that this film, and its predecessor The Prince Of Egypt (the story of Moses), are the products of DreamWorks animation. Normally their work is quite a bit more edgy than... well, Bible stories.
