Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"What might have been a bland Back to the Future rip-off suddenly hums with a screwball sensibility chockablock with singing gangster frogs and evil bowler hats."
‑ Stephen Garrett, Time Out New York
"There's no doubt Disney will do it again, and perhaps better next time, but for now, it looks like technology could be its creative salvation."
‑ Scott Tobias, AV Club
"Meet the Robinson tasted like chicken - Chicken Little, that is."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"A hilarious and adorable science fiction film with great animation, top notch voice work, and sharp humor..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Pleasant but insubstantial, and with characters whose eccentricities feel just a tad forced and artificial, this is a mild diversion of a film."
‑ Brian Webster, Apollo Guide
"Whether you see this loony, feel-good comedy in 3-D or in regular vision, it's a lot of fun."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Meet the Robinsons is surely one of the worst theatrically released animated features issued under the Disney label in quite some time."
‑ A.O. Scott, New York Times
"Flashes of wit and whimsy notwithstanding, the future is just as sentimentalized as the past."
‑ Tom Meek, Boston Phoenix
"...the movie possesses an unusually bright and colorful sense of style that immediately sets it apart from its increasingly plentiful brethren."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Despite its obvious shortcomings, Meet the Robinsons left me wanting a little more. It's been a long, long time since a Disney film without a little lamp logo at the beginning has made me feel that way."
‑ Ryan Cracknell, Movie Views
"The first 20 minutes of this competently animated kids' adventure are entertaining enough. But thereafter, the plot fractures, the pace goes into overdrive and the jokes wear thin."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"A fast paced, high energy offering; it passes by in a breeze and is enjoyable enough that I'm willing to forgive the two awful songs (one near the beginning, one near the end) and recommend it."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"A baby being left on the doorstep of an orphanage has been done many times, yet Meet the Robinsons makes it feel new again, and not just because of the fantastic 3-D technology."
‑ Jeff Bayer, The Scorecard Review
"Clever time-travel adventure for the whole clan."
‑ Sandie Angulo Chen, Common Sense Media
"...a movie with its heart in the right place and its computers heading off in all different directions."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
