When did Disney start making good films again? Was Eisner taken out in a senseless anvil accident?

Breezily paced and not above poking fun at Disney stereotypes.

A mildly amusing, though surprisingly thin, helping of holiday fun.

...a lunatic tone far more reminiscent of the work of legendary animation madman Tex Avery than it is of such recent stately Disney offerings as "Mulan." Behind that awful title lurks a frequently hilarious little film.

Es sencillamente una cinta muy ligera de dibujos animados para entretener y divertir por un rato y ...y ...y se acabó.

Chega a ser difícil avaliar quem ri mais das inúmeras gags presentes no filme: os adultos ou as crianças.

Disney's animation team cuts loose with a wild and wacky tale that makes little real sense ... and knows it ... and doesn't care.

Not without its amusing moments but this animated Disney feature feels hurried and somewhat frantic in its approach.

Kid Movie...Shmid Movie. This flick is funny!

he movie is sly, sarcastic, sardonic, and for me, that says "funny." For traditional Disney devotees, it might say "too adult and mean-spirited for my taste."

It may be cool, but it's not great animated cinema.

Animated films don't need to be genius -- they just need to make sure they don't do too much wrong.

This is the best Warner Brothers cartoon Disney ever made.

It has a freewheeling script and daredevil animation -- driven by a script that assumes everyone is hip and cool and totally in tune with animation as entertainment.
James Kendrick

fun in a free-form, slapstick, throw-away manner that is largely lacking from most high-concept Disney animated films
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

Has a freshness that's been missing from some of its predecessors.
