Gorgeous but dark -- not the usual Disney experience.

...spectacular visual delights, plus a modicum of thought and an unusually dark tone not usually found in a Disney effort.

Makes a good case for self-esteem, tolerance, and social conscience.

Weak.

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

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.

This is classic Disney, a great story, lovingly crafted, with a solid musical score. It is a wonderful film for the whole family.

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

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

By sticking faithfully to the broader themes of Hugo's story -- those of desolation and desire, of trust and betrayals thereof -- the creators have fashioned the most poignant and deeply moral story to roll off the Disney storyboards in decades.

A high point in the renaissance of Disney animation.

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

Although I like the film and recommend it, I will admit upfront that I was disappointed.

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

It's hard not to admire what has been accomplished, despite whatever reservations one might have about the plundering of Hugo's classic source material.

Hunchback will be instructive to children. But the movie felt a little overly educational to me.

Make your children see the movie. If they get to like the deformed main character, then you know these kids can tell the difference between right and wrong.

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