Not great. Not an all-time legendary accomplishment of family-friendly cinema. But pretty darn decent altogether.

O visual oitentista e os efeitos visuais datados acabam contribuindo para o charme do filme, que ainda consegue divertir.

They don't make pre-teen entertainment like this anymore, and that's a crime...retains a filmmaking purity that's timeless, aging well against a summer of now dated motion pictures.

The special effects have moved on a bit since the 1950s, but this is old-fashioned Disney fun.

[It's] in the best tradition of Disney -- and even better than that, because it is not so juvenile that adults won't be thoroughly entertained.

The special effects are all there, nicely in place, and the production values are sound, but the movie is dead in the water.

Though it relies on special effects, this cutie-pie caper never loses sight of the protagonists amid the bigger-than-life Cheerios and 40-foot blades of grass.

This Disneyfied version of The Incredible Shrinking Man isn't so bad -- it at least features some reasonable special effects.

A funny, silly, even exciting adventure for younger audiences with a nice pro-family message that doesn't get in the way.

Except for the demise of an endearing ant, the film keeps everything in perspective and is amusing and light-hearted throughout.
