The Fox and the Hound is a flawed, but effective kids' flick.

August 11, 2011
not one of the studio's best efforts, but nonetheless it remains a fascinating product of an era of upheaval as well as a meaningful statement about the nature of prejudice
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
August 10, 2011
A work of both learned, assured poise and triumphant freshman determination, not far away from other benchmark-status works like Snow White or Pixar's Toy Story.

Sweet but a bit dull...Overall, the picture is good-hearted and colorful, with an ending that carries a nice touch of ambiguity about the tussle of nature and nurture. [Blu-ray]

Cloying and cutesy, a helpless callback to a number of truly classic movies that it couldn't hope to equal, let alone better.

All charmingness aside, this cute but rather thinly plotted yarn exposes the cracks that were present in the pre-renaissance Disney empire.

Against all odds, a tear or two is effectively jerked, and there was enough skill on display to encourage some hope for the new generation of Disney animators, who made their debut here.

Importantly, the story relies on plot to carry it along and serves as a welcome reminder that audiences don't require a popular reference or in-joke every five minutes to sustain their interest.

It was a self-contained story that didn't try to change the world, and that was part of its charm.

A southern gothic--and a damn good one at that

...boasts an old-fashioned vibe that proves impossible to resist...

Disney may have gone off the rails for a few years after The Fox and the Hound, but this one still feels like a classic. Or at very least, a mini-classic.

A wounded and unresolved movie free of the expected Disney cutesiness and complacency.

...very sweet and no doubt a delight for children, but I found it quite slow and tedious.

The bottom line, I suppose, is: Will kids like this movie? And the answer is, sure, I think so.

Ainda que apresente algumas das falhas habituais das produções Disney dos anos 70, tem personagens carismáticos e marca a estréia de uma nova geração de animadores.

The most charming of Disney features of the 1980s, with two appealing protagonists and a worthy story.
