Viewed in isolation, Dumbo feels like a practice feature film from animators whose only previous experience was short subjects.
If I were a betting man i would bet that the second that you submitted your review you turned around and punched a 4 year old kid. did you have no childhood?

As a father of 6 terrific children (all penetrating, insightful movie lovers with more critical acumen than most adults I know), I don't think much of the childhood-loving bona fides of someone who cracks jokes about punching 4-year-olds. Not loving DUMBO may make me a crank and an oddball. I can live with that. Cracking jokes about people who disagree with you about movies punching 4-year-olds makes you something worse. Apparently you can live with that too.

Don't try to wriggle your way out of this dude, you have Dumbo a rotten review just because it's too short. That's completely idiotic. Shouldn't a C+ warrant a fresh review? You clearly had no childhood and do not deserve to be a critic. I suppose you'd give Snow White and Fantasia a rotten review too?

Didn't read the review, then, friend?

What a coward to hide behind your precious brood! So, somehow, you're LESS of a douchebag because your drunken dizzy sperm managed to find what I presume to be rather well-fed eggs a half dozen times? You've seen "Idiocracy" right? All that means is that you've managed to spawn 6 more little douchebags raised to misunderstand and ignore the vital substance of narrative, character and moral allegory. It's not that I happen to disagree with you, it's that you happen to disagree with every other professional critic in the nearly 70 years of this film's existence. If I was your four-year-old, I'd punch you. I can live with that.

Congrats for ruining a 100%, Steven D. Gay-danus!

Why is it that all you *****ing retads can't learn to leave the perfect score as it is?
Jun 10 - 12:35 PM
Because we disagree.
Jan 10 - 06:32 AM
No. Because YOU disagree. We ALLLL think you're a moron!!!

The posters above me are mostly assholes. I, on the other hand, will say I'm sorry, just because I can't imagine a life where this movie isn't seen as sheer perfection.

Thanks for your civil disagreement, friend. I think of SNOW WHITE, BAMBI and BEAUTY & THE BEAST as perfection. But I can easily imagine other people disagreeing.
Jan 10 - 06:34 AM
Your children will hate you. They will rebel with "Fantasia", "Dumbo" and "Pinocchio" and you will cry. Perfection!

Steven you are not human
Oct 16 - 05:50 PM
I'm sorry, but I entirely disagree with you. And it seems that most people do. I think every opinion should be respected however, and thus I shall refrain from calling you a fathead or whatever.
(Also: It is not wise to read the comment section of one of your reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, especially if you gave a movie with an overall fresh rating a negative review. It can do things to your self esteem...)

...and that's what makes it stand out in my opinion. those short subjects have some of the most subtle yet powerful images on the screen.
