"The Nutcracker: The Untold Story" delivered in a big way. Where to begin: Nathan Lane's character has gray, poofy hair, is named Uncle ALBERT and has a song called "It's All RELATIVE." I'm sorry, I forgot the part of the Nutcracker where freaking Einstein was a character. Let's see... there's the steampunk Rat army, the ridiculously blatant Holocaust imagery (you know, for kids!), the Tim Rice lyrics superimposed on Tchaikovsky's legendary music (Dance of the Reeds played Dixieland style, for example. Not joking.), and my personal favorite element, the Rat Queen.
