Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Director Jim Fall has orchestrated Lizzie's dream vacation with energy and humor."
‑ Sheri Linden, Hollywood Reporter
"A smug, cutesy music video/ fashion show for [Hilary] Duff."
‑ Jane Horwitz, Washington Post
"...the end result is an effort that'll surely have a much more positive effect on fans than on neophytes to the Lizzie McGuire saga."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"As driving-around-in-the-car-with-the-top-down, putting-on-your-lip-gloss, loving-life moviemaking, it's all good."
‑ Kevin N. Laforest, Montreal Film Journal
"Its tone is identical to the travelogue movies of the week that NBC used to spin from their hit sitcoms"
‑ Bill Chambers, Film Freak Central
"... [Duff's] a very charming young actress, but the material just isn't there."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"The story is essentially flawed, and so is the presentation."
‑ Daphne Gordon, Toronto Star
"No one will claim that the pre-teen market is saturated with movies for girls, thus The Lizzie McGuire Movie is a welcome addition that fills the bill..."
‑ Daniel M. Kimmel, Worcester Telegram & Gazette
"Lizzie may be cheesy and disappointingly straight-laced but all in all she's a bit of fun."
‑ Annette Dasey, Teletext
"Quick to capitalize on one of its assets, now that the 65-episode cap of Lizzie McGuire has been fulfilled, Disney has turned around and popped out a pay-per-view version."
‑ Greg Muskewitz,
"Doesn't try to be more than what it is: a romantic fantasy caper."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"The target audience will absolutely adore it."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"A fantasy that teaches girls that popularity and material possessions are the most important things in life and will fall right into your lap if you're adorable enough."
‑ Josh Bell, Las Vegas Weekly
"Passable entertainment for the young teen set that's far from memorable, but at least offers a few sparks of life."
‑ Brian Webster, Apollo Guide
"A fresh and fabulous Cinderella fantasy, Lizzie McGuire is a delightful charmer about a young girl who dreams of being a pop star."
