Review: ‘Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return’ lacks brains, heart, nerve “Over the Rainbow” has been supplanted by some throwaway number about teamwork courtesy of Bryan Adams. Whatever the shortcomings inherent in “Dorothy of Oz,” they are only exacerbated here by sweatshop animation, cringeworthy ditties and a DreamWorks-influenced wisecracking screenplay by Adam Balsam and Randi Barnes that undermines the story at almost every turn. In the original “Oz,” Scarecrow, Tin Man and Lion yearned for a brain, a heart and the nerve. But in this “Legends of Oz,” based on a book by Baum’s great grandson, Roger S. Baum, Dorothy’s pals have no such lofty desires. The same can be said about the film itself. If it only had a brain, a heart and the nerve.
