Rainbow Brite and the Star Stealer is not an especially imaginative tale, and the animation is at times lifeless.

So incompetently crafted that it makes the Saturday-morning cartoons seem like Disney classics.

Wherever she goes, she leaves a rainbow trail. As a matter of fact, the film has rainbows everywhere. I stopped counting at 247 or so.

Noisy, subpar cartoon adventure with lots of peril.

The animation is wretched, and the whole thing is so sickly sweet as to be almost nauseating.

Audience Reviews for Rainbow Brite and the Star Stealer

Yes, it's a cheesy kids cartoon-based movie from the 80s, but it actually was really cool, the story is good and so is the animation. I enjoyed it, and I think kids today will still like it too.
