All Critics (193) | Top Critics (46) | Fresh (164) | Rotten (29)

  • The backgrounds are beautifully drawn. There are sunny days in the French Quarter, spooky nights among live oaks hung with Spanish moss, and a rousing denouement at the Mardi Gras.

  • If the film boasts any advantages over digital, it's in the pastel richness of its colours and the elasticity of its characters, who enjoy a degree of comic flexibility and range of expressions we still don't get from computers.

    Dec 7, 2014 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • The nineteen-twenties jazz-age setting and the primal-adventure storytelling are boilerplate Disney, scrubbed clean of any real local color.

  • It's a very cute film, a very accessible work for children and families.

  • Randy Newman's songs are a little too blandly Randy Newman-ish and the story is uneven, but there are some great characters, some even better jokes, a general sense of good humour and that entrancing, eye-ravishing old-school animation.

    Feb 2, 2010 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The closest yet that Disney's traditional 2-D animation has come to threatening the supremacy of the computer-generated Pixar-style tales.

Audience Reviews for The Princess and the Frog

    I have some questions, I have some comments, both of which may come across as moderately hostile, but I still enjoyed The Princess and the Frog. I'm not too sure why though. I won't be coming back for the soundtrack, which is generally one of the biggest appeals of these Princess deals, and certain things are so *yawn* Disney that you can call them before you press play, but at least it's a little different.

    Disney romp in the same manner as the old classics, yet lacking bygone excitement despite some interesting tunes.

    It was an alright Disney movie with some decent morals. Meh. Some decent music, though!

    Crummy by Disney standards. This is one of the Princess series and once we can check off another ethnicity that has been profiled and can now be marketed to the world. Probably the Disney movie that your children will least want to see.
