Anne Frank in Bricks (film #8 in the Action section of Brickfilms. Also, film #19 in the Comedy section of Brickfilms. Also, film #5 in the Music Video section of Brickfilms). [Category: Outtakes & Obscurities]

They’ve taken more than a few liberties with the original story here––they’ve hacked up the original story and put it into a blender with hundreds of pop cultural references and turned it on “liquefy.” For starters, I don’t recall the original book containing a Kentucky Fried Chicken, an elephant relieving itself on Peter, the song “Bicycle Races” by Queen, or a bicycle-repairing penguin. And it contains the most bizarre battle sequence ever put on film, if it is indeed a battle sequence. Not that any of these factors are drawbacks, mind you.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ****. Weirdness: *****. Historical Interest: *****. Overall Rating: ****.
