Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"[It's] in the best tradition of Disney -- and even better than that, because it is not so juvenile that adults won't be thoroughly entertained."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"Though it relies on special effects, this cutie-pie caper never loses sight of the protagonists amid the bigger-than-life Cheerios and 40-foot blades of grass."
‑ Rita Kempley, Washington Post
"Two-dimensional fun."
‑ Scott G. Mignola, Common Sense Media
"A wonderful blend of thrills, character, and humor that will keep both children and adults charmed and engaged throughout."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"enjoyably goofy"
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"Sterling entertainment..."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"The special effects are all there, nicely in place, and the production values are sound, but the movie is dead in the water."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"O visual oitentista e os efeitos visuais datados acabam contribuindo para o charme do filme, que ainda consegue divertir."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"The special effects have moved on a bit since the 1950s, but this is old-fashioned Disney fun."
‑ , Film4
"Much better than it seems it has a right to be."
‑ Mark R. Leeper, rec.arts.movies.reviews
"As sweet, straightforward and funny as its title."
‑ Caryn James, New York Times
"Not great. Not an all-time legendary accomplishment of family-friendly cinema. But pretty darn decent altogether."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"They don't make pre-teen entertainment like this anymore, and that's a crime...retains a filmmaking purity that's timeless, aging well against a summer of now dated motion pictures."
‑ Brian Orndorf, BrianOrndorf.com
"One of the better Disney live-action flicks from the '80s."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis
"Except for the demise of an endearing ant, the film keeps everything in perspective and is amusing and light-hearted throughout."
‑ David N. Butterworth, rec.arts.movies.reviews
