New “Alice”: Reviews Don’t Matter

“Alice Through the Looking Glass,” a follow-up to the big hit “Alice” of 2010, has wretched reviews. But it will still do business. (Read some here.)

But Alice’s mission feels as manufactured as the story’s whatsits and doodads, as Bobin struggles to infuse make-believe with emotion.’
