Pretty to look at; dramatically inert.

Surely one of Disney's ugliest and least imaginative efforts.

Song and dance numbers were probably not what Victor Hugo had in mind.

Adding to the film's split personality is Demi Moore.

The latest and most uncertain of Disney's animated efforts, with its manic mood swings and cloying, none-too-cuddly hero.

The Hunchback's message -- that beauty is only skin deep -- goes only so far.

The Hunchback of Notre Dame ultimately misses its target, as it's more likely to find acceptance with an older-than-average Disney crowd.

Like another famous tale set in Paris, Disney's animated version of Victor Hugo's venerable The Hunchback of Notre Dame is the best of times and, if not really the worst of times, something uncomfortably close to it.

Disney has created a movie that, like Quasimodo himself, is half formed.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Considering that Disney couldn't help but trash Victor Hugo's novel in the process of reforming it for tender young sensibilities, this animated adaptation of his Notre Dame de Paris is pricklier and more disturbing than we had any right to expect.

This is the least-enjoyable animated feature to come from the studio since its 1989 rebirth.

I wish Disney had stuck to a lesser-known and lesser-loved book.

Antagony & Ecstasy

If not for some hopelessly incompetent and wasted attempts to lighten the mood... it might well be able to compete with Beauty and the Beast as the best film of the Disney Renaissance.

Disney has rediscovered the dark magic of the psyche.

Though Alan Menken's music misses the big tune that would cap Stephen Schwartz's nimble lyrics, it's the thematic sophistication that brings the movie to life, making older children and adults its best audience.
