Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Gary Baseman's Emmy-winning cartoon series arrives on the big screen in a delightful blast of bold drawing, brainy humor, and hard-charging songs."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"It's part sugar, part spice and all-around brilliant."
‑ Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
"Fast, fresh, funny and entertaining for all."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media

‑ Susan Granger, www.susangranger.com
"As CGI cartooning takes over the world Teacher's Pet finds a fresh and frisky approach to doing things the old, Walt way."
‑ Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine
"Has a non-sentimental appeal for that ... crowd that fancies itself too cool for kiddie stuff."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"May not be a Disney classic, but it's certainly unique enough to warrant at least a rental, if not a spot in the permanent library."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Delightful, giggle-inducing movie that will amuse kids with its quirky drawing style and outlandish action, while entertaining their parents with fast-paced, clever dialogue."
‑ Eric D. Snider, EricDSnider.com
"What the film lacks in graphic sophistication it makes up for in visual imagination, especially in several exuberant musical numbers."
‑ Jim Lane, Sacramento News & Review
"This isn't your father's Disney cartoon."
‑ Mark Holcomb, Village Voice
"Teacher's Pet is no Finding Nemo, nor even Lilo and Stitch, but it is an enjoyable family film."
‑ Claudia Puig, USA Today
"If nothing else inventive, at the very least perverse, and at moments transcendently bizarre."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"While an absurdity or two can be tolerated and cartoon physics is perfectly okay in this sort of thing, the simple fact is that the illogical plotholes generally hurt the movie."
‑ Eric Lurio, Greenwich Village Gazette
"A fine, smart, wickedly funny family film."
‑ Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
