Tom Hanks’ lackluster performance in Pinnochio can largely be attributed to the entire plot and content of the film’s premise, which was needlessly filled with extra content while missing some major aspects of the previous 1940s adaptation. His performance as Col. Tom Parker in Elvis is called ‘Ludicrously Accented’ in the film from his real-life counterpart., who had more of a Dutch accent than Hanks’ version, who has a southern accent, changing the character’s origins entirely.
