Alice in Wonderland was the number one box office hit in North American when it opened in March 2010, and stayed number one for three consecutive weeks. It is currently the eighth highest-grossing opening weekend of all time, highest opening weekend for a non-sequel - taking the record from Spider-Man - and the highest one as well for a non-holiday, non-summer period. In addition, the film also became the highest-grossing film of 2010 within the first three days of release beating Valentine's Day's $106 million gross. By June 1st, the worldwide box office gross totaled $1,006,060,345, surpassing The Dark Knight to become the 5th-highest-grossing film of all time, although it has gone down to 6th at this writing. Among 2010 releases it stands as the second-highest-grossing film of 2010 in the United States and Canada behind Toy Story 3 and the second-highest-grossing film of 2010 worldwide, also, behind Toy Story 3. It is the sixth film ever to surpass the $1 billion mark worldwide. Not bad, eh?

This is really remarkable considering mixed reviews from critics giving the movie an average of 3 stars out of 5, meaning an average movie - not good enough. It even got a rating of 1/5 from a couple of critics, one of whom saying "It's not enough to say this "Alice in Wonderland" is creepy." And that "the yelling and whining and just plain loudness of the story without buffering it with humor, friendliness, or fun, and you have an eerie collection of irritating, semi-paralyzed caricatures screaming at you for 77 minutes." It also got a rating of D+ from a critic saying "The film's bleak and exhausted.."

But amidst these negative reviews, Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland was a huge hit with the moviegoers. We, the moviegoers, had the last say... thanks to absolutely brilliant performances of the whole cast specifically Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen, Mia Wasikowska as Alice, and Anne Hathaway as the White Queen, and Burton's ingenuity bordering on the bizarre.

Beyond crazy Mad Hatter played by Johnny Depp (twice, I repeat twice, voted Sexiest Man Alive by People Magazine - 2003 and 2009),

The Mad Hatter: "There is a place. Like no place on Earth. A land full of wonder, mystery, and danger! Some say to survive it: You need to be as mad as a hatter." [picks up his hat]

The Mad Hatter: "Which luckily I am."


The Red Queen, starring Helena Bonham Carter

The always irritated and quick to anger Red Queen played by Helena Bonham Carter,

The Red Queen: "Off with their heads!"

The disappearing Cheshire Cat (voice by Stephen Fry),

Cheshire Cat: "What do you call yourself?"

Alice Kingsley: "Alice."

Cheshire Cat: " *The* Alice? "

Alice Kingsley: "There's been some debate about that."

Cheshire Cat: "I never get involved in politics."

And of course Alice, now grown (19 years old) into a stronger-willed and empowered heroine, played beautifully by Mia Wasikowska.

Alice Kingsley: "I try to believe in as many as six impossible things before breakfast. Count them, Alice. One, there are drinks that make you shrink. Two, there are foods that make you grow. Three, animals can talk. Four, cats can disappear. Five, there is a place called Underland. Six, I can slay the Jabberwocky. "

The Mad Hatter: "Have I gone mad?"

[Alice checks Hatter's temperature]

Alice Kingsley: "I'm afraid so. You're entirely bonkers. But I'll tell you a secret. All the best people are."
