Gizmos and villains are delightful!

Although it's quick, mischievous and full of visual trickery, there's not much magic in Inspector Gadget.

Watching Inspector Gadget is like watching a human Swiss Army knife for nearly an hour and a half.

Inspector Gadget demonstrates how a movie with little more on its mind than tickling the eyeballs of 7-year-olds can feature spiffy, jack-in-the-box special effects and still end up a dud.

Disney has struck once again, taking a passably entertaining cartoon and turning it into a motion picture so lifeless that it's almost unwatchable.

If 700 monkeys typed for 700 years, one of them would come up with Hamlet. Give them a week, and six would come up with Inspector Gadget.

Inspector Gadget is the longest 80-minute movie ever made!

A scrap heap of jokes and sight gags lifted from half a dozen super-sleuth spoofs.

The new live-action feature from Disney is in its own way just as much of a cartoon as Tarzan. It's almost as much of a wonder, too.

Plenty of chuckles!

There's nothing like watching actors fighting their way out of a movie they know is crap.
January 1, 2000
It has going for it a lot of expensive-looking special effects, but little in the way of wit or excitement.

This is the worst live-action Disney feature since 1997's That Darn Cat remake!
