...a sporadically entertaining yet hopelessly uneven bit of animated filmmaking.

..an uneven episode in the Disney legacy, without much shape and substance beyond the concept of jumping from one scene to the next in order to get to the next musical number.

Here's yet another animated feature from Disney's mostly barren stretch between its two golden ages, a film that plays better in nostalgia-tinged memories than in the here-and-now.

A serious disappointment, recommended only for inveterate Disney fans and very young people.

The literally last-minute stab at domestic foreplay is simply unbelievable, but Baloo's lip-licking post-mortem ("I still think he'd a made one swell bear") is what sticks.

The Jungle Book is fun, cheerful animation; high on hummable songs and comedy; and low on scary moments.

Whatever it lacks in heroic reach it more than makes up for in sociable personality and devastatingly expressive animation from the Disney masters, making it an underground classic that's impressively stood the test of time.

By far the most contemporary in expression and attitude of any Disney animated feature to that time.

The standout song goes to Harris, a rhythmic 'Bare Necessities' extolling the value of a simple life and credited to Terry Gilkyson.

The Jungle Book isn't without its rough spots, but on the whole it's fully deserving of its place in the Disney canon.

The roughness around the edges of The Jungle Book are part of what makes it such a classic.

Disney had perhaps the clearest vision of any creative talent in Hollywood, and 'The Jungle Book' is the last project with which he was personally involved. Though he died before it hit theaters, he would have been proud of the final cut.

Jaunty animation meets jazzy songs in Disney classic.

With an ensemble cast of memorable characters, catchy tunes and lots of zaniness, it's hard not to love the Kipling adaptation.

[Blu-ray Review] Looking and sounding like a million bucks (or more) and full of exhaustive bonus content new and vintage, the Blu-ray release of "The Jungle Book" is a must-own for anyone who loves animation, the Walt Disney studio, or film in general.
