Critic Reviews for Four Kids and It

All Critics (41) | Top Critics (17) | Fresh (20) | Rotten (21)

  • Even at a time when new family entertainment will always be gratefully received, it doesn't feel too much to wish for that films for children - sorry, kids - should be built a bit more rigorously than this.

    November 27, 2020 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • The problem boils down to this question of sincerity. Director Anthony de Emmony does not feel the magic of this story.

    September 24, 2020 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Sky Cinema's new family adventure seems built to be consumed and quickly forgotten.

    August 10, 2020 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Ros and Smash begin to understand how acknowledging they cannot have what they really want makes it possible for them to begin to move forward. That's the real magic.

    July 2, 2020 | Rating: B | Full Review…
  • There's a certain level of absurdity you have to accept with Four Kids and It, but once you do that, it's a pleasant-enough diversion.

    July 1, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • This apparent lack of conviction leaves the pic feeling too trivial in comparison to a host of children's literary classics and too innocuous to make much of an impression as a memorable movie.
