Ohana means family, and family in this fun and feisty 2002 animated Disney feature means a little Hawaiian girl, her caretaker sister, the sister's boyfriend, and a mutated monster of an alien that little Lilo adopts, thinking he's a dog.

It is the sweetest Disney movie of its generation; but the lengthy beginning and somewhat shorter climax drag it down at the worst possible points.

It's a bright, engaging bauble with half a dozen Elvis Presley songs for Mom and Dad, and just enough sass -- Stitch sticks his tongue into his nose and eats his snot -- to keep the tweeners giggling.

It's funny, it's sad and, frankly, it's a bit weird.

Regrettably, towards the end the film veers off into a mess of weird aliens and Cartoon Network silliness.

Easily one of the strangest products to ever emerge from the Disney animation pipeline.

The movie does manage to tug at your heartstrings with its themes of loneliness and finding a place to fit in, but it does it without ever rising too high on the sap-o-meter.

Similar to most contemporary American feature-length animation, the film's overall structure is frayed.

... it unapologetically affirms that love can make good things happen in a broken family.

A raucous comedy/adventure [and] easily one of the strangest products to ever emerge from the Disney animation pipeline.

Putting aside the Pixar computer animated offerings, this is the best Disney animation in nearly a decade.

Make sure your kids don't get too much sugar in the cinema - the house mightn't be up to the mayhem when they get out.

All the sentiment and charm you'd expect from a Disney movie, but easier to swallow thanks to mature themes and realistic characters.

It's not in the same league with the likes of Beauty And The Beast or Aladdin, but it's much better than, say, last year's Atlantis: The Lost Empire.

Lilo & Stitch could be considered a safe and amiable vehicle for the powers-that-be at the Disney stable. But that's probably this movie's main downfall--it's TOO safe in a time where the sophisticated outlook of cinema is progressive
