The Hunchback of Notre Dame Reviews

May 8, 2019
The messages in the movie are very muddled.

A better title for the film would have been Beauty and the Beast, but Disney's already done that -- which may be why Alan Menken's score sounds like warmed over off-cuts from its predecessor.

A shameful iteration of a literary masterpiece.

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.
September 2, 2008
Surely one of Disney's ugliest and least imaginative efforts.
September 2, 2008
Disney has created a movie that, like Quasimodo himself, is half formed.

Pretty to look at; dramatically inert.

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.
January 1, 2000
The Hunchback of Notre Dame ultimately misses its target, as it's more likely to find acceptance with an older-than-average Disney crowd.
January 1, 2000
The Hunchback's message -- that beauty is only skin deep -- goes only so far.
January 1, 2000
The latest and most uncertain of Disney's animated efforts, with its manic mood swings and cloying, none-too-cuddly hero.
January 1, 2000
Song and dance numbers were probably not what Victor Hugo had in mind.
