Storyline Heading

The tale of Anna Leonowens, a strong-willed, widowed British governess who comes to Siam to provide the King's children with a Western education, and the opinionated yet inspired King of Siam, who is both confounded and bewitched by his children's new teacher.

DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Animated - An animated version of Rogers & Hammerstein's classic musical, this film lacks a true target audience. Too slow and dull for children and too superficial and silly for adults, it's unlikely to find favor with any particular age group, although it is suitable for family viewing.

Critic's Review Heading
Poor
I suppose it might have sounded good when it was being pitched... It doesn't take much to envision a meeting in some antiseptic Warner Brothers board room, with executives huddled around a table trying to figure out how the studio is going to remain a viable contender in the animation game. Thus was born this ill-conceived version of Rogers and Hammerstein's The King and I. Anyone conversant with the original stage production (or the popular 1956 movie version) will be stupefied by the changes. Anyone unfamiliar will simply be stupefied - if they can stay awake. Pacing is crucial to the success of an animated film, and The King and I fails from start to finish.
