Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Decently crafted but oddly charmless."
‑ Joe Leydon, Variety
"A spirited and fluffy kids' comedy."
‑ Peter Stack, San Francisco Chronicle
"Culkin looks really bored. Maybe because "Richie Rich" is so damn boring."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"It was fun for what it was...which is not very much, but will get a kick out of it for all the fun gadgets."
‑ Shawn Bowers, Kansas City Star
"Be careful about taking kids under 7 or 8 as it may scare them."
‑ Steve Rhodes, Internet Reviews
‑ Geoff Andrew, Time Out
"What's sort of wonderful is the way this movie takes that old formula and makes it fresh and new, with actors who give it wit and charm."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Serviceable family entertainment."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"It's only worth dreaming, "If I Were a Rich Boy"..."
‑ Michael Szymanski,
"There's absolutely nothing here you haven't seen before, and while some kids might be mildly entertained, they would probably be even happier just staying home."
‑ Joey O'Bryan, Austin Chronicle
"Most of the time, Richie Rich is too busy oohing and ahhing over the junk that money can buy to relax and have a good time."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"The filmmakers seem to think of their movie as a fiduciary fable, but they're not quite sure about its moral."
‑ Rita Kempley, Washington Post
"Plays on every kid's fantasy of being so wealthy that no one likes him."
‑ Eric D. Snider,
"Anyone out there who is still a Macaulay Culkin fan after this one is downright masochistic."
‑ Chris Hicks, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
