As a conversation piece for hardcore film buffs and Disney fans, it's a fascinating little curiosity -- but that's about it.

An incredible feat of satirical culture-jamming and gonzo movie-making, Escape from Tomorrow, for better or worse, won't be forgotten by those who agree to buy the ticket and take the ride

Anyone with a filmmaking background should watch the movie to see what real guerrilla filmmaking can accomplish.

The more Escape From Tomorrow lingers in the mind, the more disturbing and fascinating its implications on modern American culture become.

Cleverly shot guerrilla-style in Disney's Florida and California theme parks, this offbeat thriller is an exercise in relentlessly inventive filmmaking, vividly proving that pure imagination can overcome a micro-budget.

It's not so much disrespectful to 'Uncle Walt' and his beloved creations as it is honest about the primal urges and shameful desires that motivated the myths and fairy tales that inspired many of Disney's more famous projects in the first place.

Not quite demented enough, but it scores major points for degree of difficulty and treating a Disney World vacation as the surreal nightmare it sometimes is.

Less provocative for its assault on the false ideals of corporate-controlled family fun than its clever repurposing of many of the same German expressionist and gothic horror tropes that are at the root of much Disney iconography.

In a world of corporate moviemaking, Escape From Tomorrow is the ultimate unstudio project. It says that when you wish upon a star, you may land a couple of sexy, underage French schoolgirls.

It's a fascinating hypothesis, entertainingly told, and we can forgive the script some of its narrative lapses as we admire the sheer chutzpah of the on-the-fly guerrilla filmmaking it took to complete the project.

Even if this ride leaves us wanting more, it's impossible not to marvel at the exceptional craftsmanship behind its construction.

Chasing Jim down all those meandering, dead-end rabbit holes sure is a lot of escapist fun.

That Moore is able to take Disney's own product and twist it into a disturbing, perverse, satire with very little tampering is remarkable in its own right.

It might not be as fun as a day filled with carnival rides, but this surreal black-and-white comedy has plenty of oddball amusement

Even if it's not great as a movie, it's intriguing as a reflection of an experience familiar to most viewers.

It'll ... leave you overstimulated, a little confused, and feeling like you've seen something you've never seen before - in other words, like you've just been to Disneyland.

Cheekily bizarre, sly and audacious if imperfect. Some of (director Randy) Moore's critiques are clearer than others and he tends to over-emphasize the sexual innuendo.

Escape From Tomorrow is the kind of movie you watch with your mouth hanging open in disbelief of the ballsiness you're witnessing onscreen. A deliriously entertaining, you-gotta-see-it-at-all-costs motion picture experience.

Will be a polarizing film, but an entertaining one for the experimental to dabble in.

This is not agitprop. Moore is not promoting a political agenda with Disney as his target. Instead, this is a filmmaker exploring the discrepancy between reality and the fantasy world Disney represents.
