What it's about: Joseph: King of Dreams is an inspiring animated story, beautifully illustrated with colorful characters and an exceptional musical score. Robert Ramirez and Rob La Duca have directed this classic, biblically based story with Ben Affleck as the voice of Joseph, and Jodi Benson, Mark Hamil, Judith Light and James Eskhouse voicing key characters. The story begins with Jacob and Rachel discovering they were going to have a miracle child, reveals how his brothers resented him, carries on through his slavery and work for Pharaoh and ends with the joyous family reunion.
The good: Bravo to Dreamworks for an entertaining, beautifully animated story about one of the Bible's favorite characters! A few privileges have been taken with the script, but these are additions that improve the story and sort of fill in the blanks. Giving Joseph a love interest from Potiphar's household whom he eventually marries when he is under Pharaoh completes the picture of Joseph as a husband and father when his brothers find him. Adding a scene that shows Potiphar sparing Joseph's life because his wife asks him to, confirms that Potiphar realized his wife was lying and that he knew Joseph was really innocent. These situations don't change the story, but instead makes sense for children who are trying to figure out what happens in those scenes. The dreams are illustrated like Van Gogh paintings, 3-D camera angles surround characters to create a more realistic shot. A half dozen songs are skillfully used to bridge plot situations, explain a character's action, illustrate time lapses and celebrate events. The painful situations of his brothers selling him into slavery, Potiphar's wife betraying him and the joyful reunion with his family are handled in a tender way that children will understand and learn from.

My 3 year old granddaughter loves it. She would ask to watch this over and over. I enjoy watching this with her and feel that the producers have stayed close to the biblical story, with some small changes. There are two parts where I distract her, as I think it sounds violent where Joseph is in prison and explains a dream , the other part is at the end where Joseph takes a knife and stabs the bags of corn which the brothers were holding. There is also a part in the beginning where Joseph dreams of a wolf chasing him which I think could be scary for a child but my granddaughter is fine with that.

I must admit that after seeing Dreamworks Animations previous film 'The Prince Of Egypt' (Which is excellent by the way) I had high hopes for 'Joseph King of Dreams'. Unfortunately the film suffers from a dire score and and a lacklustre script and story adaptation.

Having Ben Affleck as the voice of Joseph makes him sound wooden and insincere as a lead character and the supporting cast don't add much weight to the film either.

As a kid's film it is mediocre with far better offerings from Disney and other Dreamworks films.

The one thing I did enjoy about the movie is that the dream sequences are beautifully animated and the backgrounds in these scenes are straight from a Vincent Van Gogh painting which was really quite impressive.

Overall though I was disappointed with 'Joseph' and felt the film given more time and care could have been as good as its predecessor.

Joseph and Prince of Egypt are my favourite DVDs. Though I bought it for my daughter, I love watching them with her. She loves singing along and laughs at the gentle humour.
Recommend - a good way of introducing the bible to small children.

I showed this film in our secondary school and kids just loved it. Many of them don't believe in God at all and yet, this film has made them think. This story is about suffering, jealousy, forgiveness, faithfulness, to mention just some. In fact, I think it is done better than the Prince of Egypt from the same production. The songs are profound which make even adults emotional. Excellent film for the whole family.

Joseph, Prince of Dreams, is a wonderful movie that I would like to recommend to all. I do not agree with other reviews stating that it is not up to par with the Prince of Egypt. Au contraire, I feel the storytelling is much more engaging and very well executed, the songs (many more than in Prince of Egypt) are beautiful, both score and lyric wise and the spiritual message is clearly present. My three year old daughter loves the movie and wants to see it over and over again. It's Disney material but with a Biblical message of God loving and empowering his people to stand in their Godgiven destiny. Furthermore the very competitive price makes it the best DVD deal I have ever had. I hope Dreamworks will dare to take on other stories of the Bible in the future.

Beautiful movie with beautiful music! My children watch it over and over, although the plot is sentimental and refers to family relations and human dependence on God. My two boys love to watch it and I think it has positive effect on them - not like most today's foolish motion pictures. Go for it, children need values!

Everyone knows the story of Joseph, this isn't a very good version though, I prefer the LW one I saw as a child. it tries to be too clever and modern with modern art representations to convey deep meaning (which fails). It's Joseph for Americans actually, "stars" Ben Afflek, is that any kind of credentials? hailed triumphantly whilst being borderline offensive and stereotypical. Songs not quite memorable and often irritatingly overly ostentatious and showy and yes the animation does look like the third in a series of films as opposed to the first or one on a limited straight to dvd release.

Not a parr on Prince of Egypt by the same people.

Would do for a basic religious angle and that's seemingly what people appreciate but confuse it with a good film, not really one to hunt out.
