An unholy concoction of Lewis Carroll's brilliant nonsense shoehorned into every ass-backward cliché from every cut-rate screenplay-writing night-school class in Los Angeles County. There are moments when the outrageousness and visual cacophony almost push this sequel to Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland into fits of surreal inspiration. But the horrible storyline — centered on a deeply stupid MacGuffin in the form of time-travel machine called the Chronosphere — and profoundly awful performances from Johnny Depp and Anne Hathaway make this a tough sit (113 min.).
