Sandy Kenyon review: 'Alice Through the Looking Glass

It's been a half dozen years since "Alice in Wonderland" grossed more than $1 billion around the world. Now, the cast reunites for the sequel and adds a big star just in time for the long holiday weekend.

"Alice" goes through the looking glass back down to Wonderland where the same characters greet her as they did in 2010.

Anne Hathaway is just as we left her, but Johnny Depp looks much the worse for wear:

To help "The Hatter," Alice must go back in time using the "chromosphere."

The device is in the domain of a guy called "Time" played by Sasha Baron Cohen.

He made me laugh and so did Helena Bonham Carter as "The Red Queen."

Her ex-partner Tim Burton directed the first one, but turned over the reins and stepped back to serve as producer for the second -- which is perhaps why I didn't like "Through the Looking Glass" nearly as much.

The film is from Disney, owned by the same parent company as ABC7NY. null
