Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"[Glenn] Close creates an iconic, comically menacing character that lingers in the memory long after the bland nonsense of the film has faded."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"as good of a live-action Cruella as we could expect"
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"Rather pointless literalization of a great cartoon that didn't need it."
‑ Scott Weinberg, eFilmCritic.com
"Close's Cruella matches her animated counterpart's nastiness and then some; her hilariously over-the-top turn is sure to influence drag queens everywhere."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"All-ages spotted canine caper updates classic."
‑ Maria Llull, Common Sense Media
"the film is reasonably efficient and combines enough fantasy and humor to hold one's interest."
‑ Douglas Pratt, DVDLaser
"This is very harmless entertainment for kids with a non-so-subtle anti fur coat message. It is not quite up to adult standards, however."
‑ Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
"...an entertaining, surprisingly charming update of the Disney's 1961 animated classic."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"To find the biggest source of problems with this remake, take a look at the producer's name. 101 Dalmatians is Disney's first joint venture with John Hughes,"
‑ Jeffrey Westhoff, Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)
"This time they simply forget the part that made the original work -- the dogs' story."
‑ Steve Rhodes, Internet Reviews
