Jojo Rabbit

Critics Consensus

Jojo Rabbit's blend of irreverent humor and serious ideas definitely won't be to everyone's taste -- but either way, this anti-hate satire is audacious to a fault.

Movie Info

Writer director Taika Waititi (THOR: RAGNAROK, HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE), brings his signature style of humor and pathos to his latest film, JOJO RABBIT, a World War II satire that follows a lonely German boy (Roman Griffin Davis as JoJo) whose world view is turned upside down when he discovers his single mother (Scarlett Johansson) is hiding a young Jewish girl (Thomasin McKenzie) in their attic. Aided only by his idiotic imaginary friend, Adolf Hitler (Taika Waititi), Jojo must confront his blind nationalism.

  • Director Taika Waititi's self-described "anti-hate satire" blossoms into a big-hearted black comedy with the thorniest possible subject at its center.

  • Jojo Rabbit is gently comic for a while, and then surprisingly affecting at the end, so perhaps it's not fair to wish that Waititi had opted to deal more directly with the horrors of the Third Reich.

  • It risks going wrong in a dozen different ways and manages to avoid at least half of them.

  • As much as it makes you laugh, Waititi's must-watch effort is a warm hug of a movie that just so happens to have a lot of important things to say.

  • Waititi injects enough heart and wit into this enterprise to make a case that artists like him should at least be trying to find creative ways to educate new generations about the horrors of the past.

  • You'll laugh, you'll cry - sometimes at the same time. But love or hate Jojo Rabbit, Taika Waititi's hit-and-miss Nazi dramedy is damn near impossible to shake. Our suggestion: Stick with Waititi, he's worth following anywhere.
