Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The nineteen-twenties jazz-age setting and the primal-adventure storytelling are boilerplate Disney, scrubbed clean of any real local color."
‑ Bruce Diones, New Yorker
"Most of The Princess and the Frog looks more like one of Disney's straight-to-DVD sequels than like their animated classics, and the few big, fun musical set-pieces are brought down by second-rate songwriting."
‑ A.O. Scott, At the Movies
"Working in tandem with the images, the music helps make the movie a triumph of atmosphere -- you get a sense of place that's missing from lots of other Disney films."
‑ Perry Seibert, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"This teeming gumbo of characters, songs and story set in the jazzy, culturally rich French Quarter of New Orleans during the 1920s isn't just another Disney fairytale."
‑ Neil Pond, American Profile
"The result is a pretty standard old-style Disney story -- of damsel up against exotic challenges -- that's very nicely spiced up by its unique setting."
‑ Brian Webster, Apollo Guide
"It's a very cute film, a very accessible work for children and families."
‑ Laremy Legel,
"It's nice to know that the studio behind Cinderella can still cast a spell in two dimensions."
‑ Amy Biancolli, Houston Chronicle
"[The film is] colourful, funny and imaginative and should be a favourite with younger children in theatres and on DVD."
‑ Mike Goodridge, Screen International
"After paying her dues in crapfests like From Justin to Kelly and winning a Tony on Broadway and playing third fiddle to Beyonce and J-Hud in Dreamgirls, it's about time someone cast Anika Noni Rose as the lead in something."
‑ Dave White,
"The splash of Mardi Gras-set colour and excitement is thrilling to watch; the emotional bond between characters and patrons strong."
‑ Simon Foster,
"Randy Newman's songs are a little too blandly Randy Newman-ish and the story is uneven, but there are some great characters, some even better jokes, a general sense of good humour and that entrancing, eye-ravishing old-school animation."
‑ Tom Huddlestone, Time Out
"Randy Newman provides the score, which, if short of memorable tunes, is rich in authenticity, with a mixture of local flavoured ragtime, zydeco and jazz."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"The film looks great and has excellent voice talent, but the story itself is not particularly entertaining and the music is quickly forgettable and could have been much better with someone else writing the songs."
‑ Jeff Beck,
"Somehow, the result is both magically old-fashioned and wonderfully modern, the natural evolution of the heartwarming, rib-tickling, toe-tapping Disney treasures of yesteryear."
‑ Eric D. Snider,
"A spectacular throwback to past glories, The Princess and the Frog more than lives up to the high standards of this years animation releases."
‑ Matthew Pejkovic, Matt's Movie Reviews
