Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The nostalgic glow wears off pretty quickly ... and the movie has nothing to fall back on except bad puns and a brace of awkward cameo turns."
‑ Brian Cronenworth, L.A. Weekly
"Kids will enjoy it, even if the jokes escape them."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"These complaints are mere trifles compared to the fun I had at seeing my favorite moose and squirrel again."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"All of this adds up to a story we don't care about with nothing particularly involving and about two laughs both in the first ten minutes."
‑ Chris Gore, Film Threat
"Roger Rabbit, what did we do to deserve this?"
‑ Chuck Rudolph, Matinee Magazine
"It's sledgehammer whimsy, and it's not talking to me."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"All things considered, I got more fun out of the much maligned earlier attempt of bringing characters from the show to film, Boris and Natasha."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"If you liked the 1960s cartoon series upon which this film is based, you'll like this film."
‑ Michael W. Phillips, Jr., Goatdog's Movies
"For the most part, the film succeeds, with predictable complaints stemming from the stretch marks that plague all features based on TV/animated shows."
‑ Jon Niccum,
"...its status as an event picture and insistence upon live action mar what should have been a delightful romp."
‑ Rob Vaux, Flipside Movie Emporium
"This movie is a bloody mess if I've ever seen one."
‑ Joel Siegel, Good Morning America
"Expected punny dialogue and sight gags ensue, but also packed in are pointed, self-deprecating barbs about Hollywood, moviemaking, and the conventions of cartoons themselves."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"There's just not enough depth of thought to sustain it onscreen for 90 minutes."
‑ Harry Guerin, RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
"The rare adaptation that celebrates the spirit of the TV show that spawned it instead of disgracing it."
‑ Jeffrey Westhoff, Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)
"So unrelentingly bad on so many levels."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
