Escape from Escape from Tomorrow

Disney fans, are you curious about Escape from Tomorrow? I was. After I caved and rented it I thought of something positive that came from all of this - I watched it so now I can definitively tell you to avoid it at all cost.

Rosanne was not impressed.
As much as I hate to admit it, the trailer for Escape from Tomorrow intrigued me. How did they get away with filming in Walt Disney World and Disneyland for so long? How were they able to shoot an entire movie in the Disney theme parks without sending up red flags? Disney can be creepy sometimes. For those of you that have read the Kingdom Keepers, you may never look at It's a Small World the same again.

Had the film focused on the rides or characters being possessed, I probably would've enjoyed it. But that was not the focus of the film. In fact, there was no focus to the film. Possessed attractions, real life witches, public health scares, lost children, demented guests...they all make an appearance. It was all over the place.

The worst part, quite frankly, was the "porn" like feel to the whole film. Most of the movie dealt with the middle aged father chasing around young teenage girls. Do not let your children see this film. There's nudity in all the wrong places and a sex scene. I'm not a prude but it was crass. The scenes with the young girls were uncomfortable.

I was not impressed. I was not amused. I was in fact disappointed that the directors of the film were able to pull this off but did not have the story or script to make it worthwhile. The production itself was impressive but the story was atrocious.


Am I totally off base? What did you think about Escape from Tomorrow? Sound off in the comments below.

I want to go on some tours too! AND can't wait for the Seven Dwarves Ride.

Heidi Strawser said...

Since I think it looks stupid and since I trust your opinion, I'm going to steer (far) away from this movie. Thanks for the warning.

Heidi Strawser said...

Love your Disney list! I have never been to Disneyland, but I NEED to make it out there one of these days. I haven't yet done any tours, but I really, really want to!

I'm kind of annoyed that I actually spent the $4.50 to rent it, but if I save some of my friends money it will be worth it!

Rosanne_Mottola said...

Thanks Heidi! We desperately want to get out there! And I highly recommend Keys to the Kingdom should you want to try the tours out.

How COOL does the Seven Dwarfs Mine ride look!? Can't wait.

Aww love and miss you Roe! Two of my favorite pics from our reunion!

That's for that - I was pretty much planning to avoid it with a slight hesitation.. now I'm good. Sounds awful!

Lisa - great list! You MUST have a Dole Whip and you should definitely do a Disney cruise! It's worth every penny!

Rosanne_Mottola said...

Those are by far my favorites. I have the Incredibles photo framed. It's perfect! Miss you Amy!

I was intrigued as you were with the thought of seeing the park in a movie, but I had heard some of your same points that kept me away. Glad I did as I don't think i want those images stuck in my head. Thanks for the review.

Deb @ Focused on the Magic said...

Thank you! I was curious about it. You saved me an evening of disappointment!

Rosanne_Mottola said...

It really was! I should've avoided it as well! Thanks for stopping by Jenn!

Beth Green said...

Wow! I'd never even heard of it! Thanks for the review. I will not be watching this or encouraging others to!!
