Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"An ambitious, serious but not particularly stimulating musical feature that unconvincingly attempts to graft warm and cuddly family-film motifs onto turbulent aspects of modern history and mythology."
‑ Todd McCarthy, Variety
"Any film that echoes the landscape of Doctor Zhivago is hard to dislike for too long."
‑ Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
"It's Bluth and company's skill as artists, as well as some of the better celebrity voice casting in an animated movie of the 1990s, that give Anastasia its merit."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"There is much for tots to enjoy: decent songs, an amusing script and some surprisingly imaginative animation."
‑ Ken Fox, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"'s the typical boy-meets-girl-boy-annoys-girl-boy-and-girl-snipe-at-each-other-as-a-disguise-for-being-fond-of-each-other relationship."
‑ Rory L. Aronsky, Film Threat
"Bluth has rediscovered the ingredients of quality mainstream animation..."
‑ Geoff Andrew, Time Out
"Judging from their voices, about as close to Europe as most of these characters have ever gotten is probably Fresno."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"Beautiful, not factual depiction of missing Russian duchess."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"It does veer horribly towards the sentimental at times, but still provides proof positive that other people can do cartoons too."
‑ , Film4
"It proves that Disney can be beaten at their own game."
‑ Chris Gore, Film Threat
"A gorgeous piece of work."
‑ Peter Stack, San Francisco Chronicle
"Flawed but not fatally, this ambitious epic's strength lies not just with its haunting melodies, pretty pictures, star voices and kid-friendly sidekicks -- the usual shtick that makes Disney tick."
‑ Susan Wloszczyna, USA Today
"This enchanting fairy-tale, the first release from Fox Animation Studios, is pure family entertainment."
‑ Lisa Osborne, Boxoffice Magazine
"I have nothing but superlatives for this, a most phenomenal film."
‑ David Cornelius,
"Bluth and Goldman have created a quality animation work, with some individual scenes bordering on the extraordinary, that does a solid job in telling the mythical adventure."
‑ Robin Clifford, Reeling Reviews
