Leap! kept me surrendered from beginning to end with a quiet earnestness and simplicity that was refreshing.

There is something charming, visually compelling (especially during the dance numbers), and inspiring about Felicie's journey.
August 5, 2019
The animation team spent over two years bringing Paris to life for Leap! and their hard work and dedication pay off with detailed scenes that are very well done.

Heavy-handed, hideous and humorless, the talented supporting voice cast can't do much with this tripe that even the little kids in the target audience will assuredly rip to shreds on the way home.

Leap is a European animated film that will satisfy its target demographic of little girls dreaming of being a ballerina.

If you enjoy classical dance, especially ballet, it's enchanting to watch how those tricky movements are captured so elegantly in an animation format.
December 20, 2018
It's a formulaic underdog story that, while mostly tiresome and bland, could prove to inspire some of the budding dreamers who watch it.
November 8, 2018
A low-key throwback with charm that's hard to resist.

Leap! is a familiar story, but it flows from point to point naturally and while it does not hold any surprises, neither is it entirely predictable.

Dreams of being a famous ballet dancer dressed in bright pink tutus and a life filled with dazzling pirouettes, all viewed under the spotlights is what makes this sweet new animated story Leap! such a charming cinematic family viewing experience.

At least the ultimate message is a positive one, and the villains get their comeuppance, but this is rough stuff, indeed.
November 7, 2017
Leap! is an absolutely delightful, fun, and at times heartbreaking film that's perfect for girls.

The Weinsteins' latest animation is a faux pas de deux.
September 22, 2017
Leap is a little rough around the edges, but you won't mind at all because its positivity is downright contagious.
September 2, 2017
Inconsistent, often anachronistic and barely functional animated feature, aimed at pre-teens. Wait for the DVD.
August 31, 2017
The final product just isn't strong enough to share the stage with the kind of animated heavyweights that will justify movie tickets for all the kids.

Leap! wants to be a grand jeté, but it's stuck in first position.
August 31, 2017
The well-chosen voice cast helps make this a fairly engaging tale, even though the film is riddled with a wealth of head-scratching anachronistic errors.
August 30, 2017
It's an insipid film, to the surprise of, I hope, absolutely nobody.
August 28, 2017
Leap! follows a pretty simple formula, but the animation during the ballet scenes is lively and well-done. It's spirited enough to keep the film from feeling too familiar.
