The character is bereft of subtlety, the lessons are simple, loud, and clear, and there is a suprising dearth of comedy.

The film is nothing if not benign, but its merits are moot for those above 7 or so.

Although the film could have been a little more subtle in its moralizing, Elmo in Grouchland is certainly as entertaining as it is instructive in socialization skills.

The direction of Gary Halvorson and screenplay by Mitchell Kriegman and Joseph Mazzarino keep Elmo's adventures sparkling.

It's cute, diverting fun for the young 'uns, and one that features a good message to boot.

A real children's film -- not 'family entertainment' -- but the kind of movie three-year-olds will enjoy, especially if they watch Sesame Street.

Full of that wonderful junky, clunky, huggable smartness that has made Sesame Street an enduring phenomenon.
