It's unable to reach the level of emotional resonance that Disney's string of '90s pictures so masterfully obtained.

As a triumphant return to form after a string of failures, it stands as one of Bluth's finest works.

Overall, Anastasia ends up being a very entertaining animated film.

It is a film that leaves us with an optimistic, albeit somewhat corny, message; love is the most important thing there is, be it familial, romantic or platonic...

The film's strength lies not just with its haunting melodies, pretty pictures and kid-friendly sidekicks, but in an emotionally gripping script.

I have nothing but superlatives for this, a most phenomenal film.
March 6, 2006's the typical boy-meets-girl-boy-annoys-girl-boy-and-girl-snipe-at-each-other-as-a-disguise-for-being-fond-of-each-other relationship.

Bluth has rediscovered the ingredients of quality mainstream animation...

It proves that Disney can be beaten at their own game.
