Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The computerised animation is cut-rate; the script keeps piling on clunker jokes that even toddlers will find lame; and Prinze proves he isn't any better an actor in two dimensions than he is in three."
‑ David Fear, Time Out
"A leaden, irritatingly obvious postmodern fairy tale."
‑ Tasha Robinson, AV Club
"Despite attempts to turn the fairytale genre on its head, the characters are predictable stereotypes."
‑ Rose Longhurst, Film4
"Shrek this ain't. A lacklustre effort hampered by limp dialogue and lazy plotting."
‑ Simon Braund, Empire Magazine
"...lives up to the promise of it's title"
‑ Sean McBride, Sean the Movie Guy
"You expect a certain amount of sugar and snark in a modern children's film, but this tossed-off retelling reeks of folks just out to make a cheap buck."
‑ David Fear, Time Out New York
"Essentially a brash comedy taking one idea as far as it can go, Happily N'Ever After is spare on emotional development but generous with smart-aleck shtick."
‑ Tom Keogh, Seattle Times
"Clunkingly obvious."
‑ Ann Kelly, BBC.com
"Deeply lame."
‑ Eric D. Snider, EricDSnider.com
"It ain't Shrek, but it ain't dreck."
‑ Frank Lovece, Film Journal International
"N'ever was an apostrophe so misplaced, n'ever was the prospect of good cheer so perversely defeated."
‑ Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
"'As Grimm as it gets,' says the promotional tag for Happily N'Ever After. Make that grim."
‑ Susan Walker, Toronto Star
"Happily N'Ever After finally arrives, looking like a cheapo knock-off of DreamWorks' ogre."
‑ , Total Film
"If you're old enough to read this sentence, you should probably go see something else."
‑ Brian Tallerico, UGO
"I'll happily never watch it again.."
‑ Kamal 'The Diva' Larsuel, 3BlackChicks Review
