The opening cartoon upstages the movie that emerges from it.

A Hollywood entertainment that lived up to its hype.
Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader  full review
 
The real stars are the animators, under British animation director Richard Williams, who pull off a technically amazing feat of having humans and Toons seem to be interacting with one another.
Variety Staff, Variety  full review
 
Supremely entertaining -- especially for adults.

Roger looks terrific after 15 years.
Glenn Abel, Hollywood Reporter
 
Although this isn't the first time that cartoon characters have shared the screen with live actors, it's the first time they've done it on their own terms.
Janet Maslin, New York Times  full review
 
A mix of live action and animation, the $45 million movie is as cunning as Wile E. Coyote and chipper as a flock of cartoon bluebirds.
Rita Kempley, Washington Post  full review
 
Sheer, enchanted entertainment from the first frame to the last -- a joyous, giddy, goofy celebration of the kind of fun you can have with a movie camera.
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times  full review
 
Not only a technical tour de force, it crackles with entertainment.
Desson Thomson, Washington Post  full review
