I have to saw the worst one is where the Romanovs turn into musical instruments, alexei (which they pronounce alex-EE) does 1 hand cartwheels, and Tat-on-yuh (i think thats how they say it in the dumb movie) is the somewhat depressing and only sister besides Anastasia......who hides behind a curtian to escape turning into an instrument.

 Dac87-

After seeing all the "bad" Romanov cartoons made after Fox did theirs, I have to agree with you. There is no musical instruments, no happy cheery life at the house of special purpouse. (sp... :-/ :( ) sop although it was pretty cheesey, and sort of...*ahem*....um.....interesting
I think it was more accurate too.

I agree that the bad Anastasia cartoon (not the instrument one, I haven't seen that) was pretty accurate in certain aspects. Although I didn't like how, at the HOSP, the Imperial Family still wore their royal clothes. Like Alexandra still wore a fancy dress, Nicholas still wore his army uniform with epaulets, the girls were in fancy party dresses, etc.

The main thing that I really didn't like was the strange Romanian uncle.
Men are haunted by the vastness of eternity. And so we ask ourselves: will our actions echo across the centuries? Will strangers hear our names long after we're gone and wonder who we were? How bravely we fought? How fiercely we loved?

I've been so tempted to buy the instruments one, s ince I've actually seen it in stores.  But the one that has vague accuracies--which one is that?  What's the cover look like?  Is that the one with Anastasia wearing some huge locket?

Cracks me up how they make Anastasia so very pretty in all the cartoons and look nothing like the real girl...short and dumpy heroine a cartoon does not make, eh?

Yeah, that was the most accurate, I actually enjoyed it more than I thought I would (after seeing some of them)

 I Wonder...when it's going to come the time when a cartoon movie about the Romanov Family, it's going to focus on the family relations in the way it's suppose to be (no turning into musical instruments, no historical unaccuracies)

I wonder what the Royal family must be thinking of them being turned into instruments (I can only allow that in The Beauty & The Beast)

Well, all I can say, is that if I wrote it, I wouldn't attach my name!

Um...the accurate one looks really bad but I like her dress on the cover. That would sell me.

Ha, yeah, none of them are incredibly accurate, but I must say there are a lot more plusses to it than some. (Although their first mistake...her birthday being in the winter...is in the first scene so it doesn't start out that promising.) Haha, I like her dress too. ;)

It's not all that great for adults who know about the Romanovs but at least it is teaching kids the truth about the Romanovs without being too shocking or emotionally scarring...lol.  But it does have some entertaining moments!

Adults? It's also not great for anyone who already knows.  ;)

lol... you know what I mean... children (as in toddlers to like 10 year olds as that is the age group this movie reaches to) might not enjoy the final cellar scenes in many of the films about the IF so this is a good way to introduce the story to very young children without subjecting them to watching the heroine of the movie get shot and stabbed to death with her family.  As for people who have read up on the Romanovs, I highly doubt they would enjoy it (even though I did in some strange way).
