Robert Zemeckis isn't a Hal Walker, but Joe Dante's right up there with Tashlin, Avery, and Jones.
Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader, 2003-11-21
The film's appeal is universal, much as the appeal of the Looney Tunes characters is universal.
James Berardinelli, ReelViews, 2003-11-17
A nutty, zany, wacky, unruly, spastically hilarious hodgepodge that hits at least twice as often as it misses.
David Edelstein, Slate, 2003-11-17
... a cheerful and self-referential romp blending animation with live action in a non-stop quest for silly laughs.
Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper, 2003-11-17
Redford/Newman, Matthau/Lemmon, Laurel/Hardy, Duck/Bunny -- we are talking fabulous screen pairings, the exquisite, instinctive pas de deux of ego as reflected in sublime comic timing, physical awareness and interspecies mind-meld.
Stephen Hunter, Washington Post, 2003-11-14
This movie, with all its hopped-up, sugar-rush action, provides plenty of fun for a young audience. And grown-ups with fond memories of Looney Tunes cartoons might find themselves giggling as well.
Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times, 2003-11-14
Pleasant but unoriginal.
Carla Meyer, San Francisco Chronicle, 2003-11-14
How can you hate a movie that puts Bugs Bunny in a flooded convertible and lets him say 'Hey, whaddya know -- I found Nemo!'
Ty Burr, Boston Globe, 2003-11-14
It's goofy fun. Or maybe we should make that daffy fun.
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, 2003-11-14
To use the lingo of Elfman's character, this oddball movie could have skewed appeal.
Mike Clark, USA Today, 2003-11-13
You leave the theater smiling, but also with a question: That's all, folks?
Jay Boyar, Orlando Sentinel, 2003-11-13
It's not a disgrace, but it is a missed opportunity.
Charles Taylor, Salon.com, 2003-11-15
Has its funny moments, but all too often it's a corny, lackluster film in which humans pretend (not always convincingly) to interact with cartoons.
Desson Thomson, Washington Post, 2003-11-14
A funny thing happened on the way to this combination live-action/animated feature: they didn't make it funny.
Jack Mathews, New York Daily News, 2003-11-14
Reviving Looney Tunes in feature length will no doubt make decent money. But the joy isn't there.
Michael Booth, Denver Post, 2003-11-14
