Product Description

Product Description

A newly baked Gingerbread Man and his friends Salt and Pepper try to have as much fun as possible, but all along the way they are hampered by Sleek the mouse and the Old Bag, a long-forgotten tea-bag. Luckily for our biscuit hero and his condiment friends, they have a valuable ally in the shape of Herr von Cuckoo, who lives in the clock on the wall. Children's animation featuring the vocal talents of Andrew Sachs.

From the Back Cover

A newly baked Gingerbread Man is left to cool on the kitchen dresser where he soon makes friends with Salt and Pepper and Herr von Cuckoo, who lives on the clock wall. The Old Bag, a long forgotten teabag living in the teapot on the top shelf, and Sleek the mouse do their best to spoil the adventures of the four friends. The Big Ones, the family who live in the house, are blissfully unaware of the fun and games that go on whenever they leave their kitchen and the friends come to life.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as ambitious as usual for Altman, but succeeds on it's own terms 3 Aug 2012
By K. Gordon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:VHS Tape
One could see this as 'Short Cuts' correlative
opposite. That was a movie with great ambitions, that - while good -
fell just short. This is a movie of much lesser aim (just a good tense
thriller/mystery), that's much more successful on it's own terms.

The acting is very good throughout. It may be my favorite Kenneth
Branagh performance; understated and subtle. And a number of the scenes
really are tense. Altman finds some clever ways to create suspense with
sound and image that aren't just retreads of what we've seen before.

Admittedly, some of the twists are pretty creaky and predictable, the
logic sometimes questionable, and the moral POV of the film is a bit
confusing. But this still blows most modern Hollywood thrillers out of the
