The epic rants denouncing the movie signify writer/director Waititi's brilliantly successful provocation. "Jojo Rabbit" is meant to make you mad, while it, also, touches your heart.

Based purely on audacity, without regard for outcome, Jojo Rabbit would have the potential to win [all the awards] ... [but] Waititi's [performance] is emblematic of the whole film: it can be brilliant or really flat, often in the span of the same moment.

Bold, offbeat and borderline blasphemous in its sardonic wit, Jojo Rabbit is at times uneven in its edgy humor, but still manages to pull off its fair share of mixing the absurdity with observational amusement.
December 4, 2019
not just frequently hilarious, but genuinely moving and thoughtful at the same time

Presenting the story through a child's eyes makes for the perfect canvas on which to effectively blend goofy humour with a chilling recognition of true horrors, and moments of tenderness and deep sincerity.

Jojo Rabbit is clever, charming, laugh-out-loud funny and deeply humane.

This oil-and-water mix of comedy and drama works, but the sudden contrast between whimsical romantic comedy and the horrors of war can sometimes be jarring. Waititi has a gift for absurdist comedy, but the fantasy scenes seem intrusive at times.

Jojo Rabbit works for me on the surface level with good acting and fun direction. Digging a little deeper shows me tons of the film's flaws, so I'll enjoy this from afar.

As is Taika Watiti's style, Jojo Rabbit is a strange and quirky film highlighting the deranged narrative of Adolf Hitler as seen through the eyes of German youth. The comedy lies a bit too close to the tragedy.
November 24, 2019
Really entertaining, surprisingly emotional, very rewatchable, and absolutely worth seeing in theaters, on the big screen.
November 23, 2019
Whereas the comedy of To Be or Not to Be and The Producers was largely rooted in slapstick and dialogue, Jojo Rabbit finds Waititi taking a more surreal approach.
November 22, 2019
Jojo Rabbit is terrifying, heartbreaking, violent, tender, cruel, surreal, and occasionally hilarious. I ask you again, are you up to the challenge?
November 21, 2019
Making fun of Nazis by directly portraying Hitler onscreen is making comedy with the difficulty level turned up to maximum. Waititi is up to the challenge.

It's hard to balance all of those tones correct, Taika Waititi does it really well. It won't be everyone's cup of tea, but you won't see another film like it this year.
November 20, 2019
Jojo Rabbit takes an unusual route, to say the least, in condemning the politics of hate. But it's also one of the boldest films in years.

[Taika Waititi] plays the imaginary Adolf Hitler. He nails it. He makes Adolf just a ridiculous, funny imaginary friend.
November 17, 2019
Taika Waititi has created something very new, fresh and different "Jojo Rabbit!" Is a reminder that we shouldn't be quick to make judgements and that we should follow our hearts and do what is right. The comedic aspects are hysterical!

Narcissistic, lying megalomaniacal strongmen, even dead ones, are always wounded by being made to look small. Jojo Rabbit reduces the uni-testicled failure and his entire ideology to cartoonish boobery.
November 15, 2019
There is a lot to like about "Jojo Rabbit," not the least of which is Waititi's bold, brave attempt at an irreverent skewering of the mindless acceptance of dehumanization.
November 15, 2019
Fueled by 11-year-old Davis' powerful performance, the film's message is that simple human kindness is the greatest strength of all.
