The movie was interesting in that certain elements, such as the ruby slippers, were creative inventions and not drawn from the original story. As Warner Brothers still owns the rights to the original story, lawyers had to make sure that nothing that did not come frame pages of Baum's book found their way into Sam Raimi's interpretation.

Shouldn't that be: nothing that came from WB's film showed up in this film. I don't believe that there was a China Town or China Girl in the original books.

I enjoyed the movie, but could do without the few over-the-top aspects - such as the HUGE MOUNTAINS of gold in the Oz vaults and the occasional excessive use of gratuitous 3d gimmicks.

My only other issue would be that Finley, the Flying Monkey, sounded too much like Billy Crystal.
