Consensus: The Peanuts Movie offers a colorful gateway into the world of its classic characters and a sweetly nostalgic -- if relatively unambitious -- treat for the adults who grew up with them.

Rendering the Red Baron-fighting Snoopy and way too many supporting characters in 3-D, and placing them in near-photo-realistic backgrounds, drains much of the charm from "The Peanuts Movie."

Without suffering, Peanuts becomes little more than wholesome distraction for kiddies.

The Peanuts Movie not only brings joy to those like me who grew up reading Schulz's comic strips, but it will also win new fans among the younger generation.

A terrific big-screen version that should satisfy Peanuts fans and generate new ones.

I just wish 3D wasn't the default setting for all big animated movie projects... Sure, they catch your eye, but sometimes you just want that crooked, pokey little two-dimensional tree that's shedding needles.

Somehow, this Peanuts feels familiar, even cozy. I can't make any great claims for it, but it feels like the return of an old friend.

There's something sad about seeing a character as sweet and simple as good ol' Charlie Brown so totally ruined.

To paraphrase a speech made once upon a time in a pumpkin patch, there's no hypocrisy to be found in any of this, just sincerity, pretty much as far as the eye can see.
