Younger kids will find the pranks and schemes funny, while the enviro-activist theme is an important message to which they may just latch on. The eco-responsibility part, not the venomous snake part, one hopes.

A cute movie with good characters, a message about saving the environment, and still enjoyable. Better than the usual drek they try to pass off as fun family entertainment.

Fun to watch although falling short of a real hoot, this latest in a barrage of family movies largely succeeds at keeping the kiddies entertained and their parents from nodding off.

The new movie has some of Hiaasen's anti-development vinegar, yet given the milkshake spin of a family-time teen picture.

One wishes that a film about the fight against a bland restaurant chain were more piquant. But movies for tweens, like burrowing owls, are an endangered species that need preservation.

This is a story about kids and nature, with strong messages about standing up to bullies, facing conflicts and why it is important to stand up for both the people and creatures that need protection.

Hoot tells kids they can make a difference in this world, and that's worth a hundred Ice Age 2's.

it's refreshing to see a movie in which the teenage characters have something on their minds besides getting to the prom, sneaking out to a concert or winning a popularity contest.

the superficial approach to the issues and casual attitude toward dangerous and illegal behavior by the kids undermines the story's credibility.

This is a film that may inspire kids to become more eco-friendly and/or go out and read Hiaason's novel...

Its target demographic will probably react favorably to it, though I can't say it did much for me, a grownup who notices things like plot holes and logical fallacies.

In a time when so many "family" films are lazy or send mixed messages, it's incredibly refreshing to see one that is as brainy, funny, and charming as Hoot.
