The Little Red Truck follows the ups and downs that take place when the Missoula Children's Theatre's little red truck arrives in a number of towns, each time posing the same challenge to the children who live there: to stage a full-scale musical in only six days. ~ Cammila Collar, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Parents eager to venture outside the animation or talking-Chihuahua boxes for family entertainment should check out the documentary The Little Red Truck, an inspiring look at a diverse array of youngsters introduced to the joys of stage performing."
‑ Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
"The Little Red Truck is more interested in exploring MCT's process than in its real-world results. That's fine, but let's not call this a documentary. It's public relations."
‑ Tom Keogh, Seattle Times
"MCT is undoubtedly a worthwhile organization, but that doesn't mean it's fun to sit through what amounts to a 90-minute advertisement for the company."
‑ Josh Bell, Las Vegas Weekly
"Pic's strength lies in charting a dual process, that of a play taking shape in an incredibly short amount time and of the changes wrought in the children's behavior as they learn to listen, focus, follow directions and work as a team."
‑ Ronnie Scheib, Variety
"It looks like a great program, but this documentary is too scattered to be all that interesting. Too many kids, too much action, not enough time."
‑ Glenn Whipp, Los Angeles Daily News
"If it sounds like the cutest thing in the history of cuteness, that's because it is."
‑ Nathan Lee, New York Times
"This is kids stuff all the way: incident without drama, controversy, art, or any of the other things that make a movie watchable."
‑ Josh Rosenblatt, Austin Chronicle
