Produced by the Disney Channel in 1990, our good friends at RiffTrax have taken it upon themselves to solemnly remind us that racism is bad.
Welcome to a live edition of a Broadway show, with perhaps less budget and theatrical presence than the aforementioned show. This story is set in China. I googled it and apparently that at least is in keeping with some of the earliest tellings of the tale. The cast is fairly white-washed, by which I mean I didn’t recognise an ethnically diverse cast during this movie.
I’m not going to dignify this with any more of a review, except to relay one of the comments by the riffers: “…like if MC Hammer was a racist cat toy…”
Watch it only if you can understand why it’s wrong on so many different levels.
