Alice's world is far loonier and mad - and has more teeth. It was a fine departure from the fairy tales of Cinderella and Snow White.

It's not among the studio's best, but it's certainly well worth watching.

Disney's frantic take on Lewis Carroll may lack much of the book's illogical charm, but it does contain one of the great proto-psychedelic sequences in cinema.

...a watchable yet thoroughly forgettable piece of work...

Despite nice elements in this Oscar-nominated Disney feature, the movie was at the time a commercial flop, but deserves to be seen.

I'm not sure there's anyone alive that believes the 1951 film lives up to Lewis Carroll's deathless 1865 novel Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, but the animated feature remains a perfectly decent slice of kid-friendly surrealism...[Blu-ray]

plays as a series of colorful, but uneven setpieces that lack an interesting or emotionally engaging heroine to tie them together

Charm and relative simplicity play like a time capsule of animated movies past, which remind us of the Disney products that captivated our grandparents.

Surreal Disney classic with wild-card characters.

An emotionally chilly exercise... At the same time it is gorgeous indeed, one of the most singular movies in the Disney canon visually.

Fifty years on the movie is clearly due a reappraisal. It's colourful, fun and as surreal as Disney is ever likely to get, this isn't as good as the books, but works as a cute introduction to them.

An enjoyable if rather pallid rendering of Carroll's classic tale.

TV Guide
November 3, 2009
The film is dazzling in its use of color and odd shapes and is enhanced by the distinctive voices of Ed Wynn as the Mad Hatter, Sterling Holloway as the Cheshire Cat, Jerry Colonna as the March Hare, and Verna Felton as the Queen of Hearts.

What's really disappointing is the undistinguished animation: the film looks and plays more like the Disney shorts than the Disney features.

Disney's animated musical adaptation of Lewis Carroll's classic is enjoyable and contains a few twisted touches and slanted visuals.

Walt Disney has gone a long way towards tightening the leisurely, haphazard adventure of Alice in the wonderland of her imagination.

If you are not too particular about the images of Carroll and Tenniel, if you are high on Disney whimsey and if you'll take a somewhat slow, uneven pace, you should find this picture entertaining.

Lovely animation and trippy story ruined by never-ending, excruciating songs.

Even as straightforward eye candy, the film is a near miss

Disney was and is a studio with an impenetrably inflated sense of quality control.
