This movie represents a low point in Disney animation, occasionally resembling a high-budget Saturday morning cartoon.

Never does "Lilo & Stitch" reach the emotion or timelessness of Disney's great past, or even that of more recent successes such as "Mulan" or "Tarzan."

Not every animated film from Disney will become a classic, but forgive me if I've come to expect more from this studio than some 79-minute after-school "cartoon".

[A] crushing disappointment.

Maybe someday, just once, a Disney animated film will surprise us.

This shameless animated rip-off of E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial is the worst-ever Disney animated feature (yes, even worse than The Black Cauldron).

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

This is a very disappointing effort from Disney.

What's a bit disappointing is the hand-drawn animation, resembling the old Looney Tunes cartoons.

A kiddie movie in need of some Ritalin -- and a decent script.

A tiresome feature that could be made into a wonderful 20-minute film.

A half-hearted effort by Disney's traditional animation department.

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

Stitch is a bad mannered, ugly and destructive little ****. No cute factor here.... Not that I mind ugly; the problem is he has no character, loveable or otherwise.

Stitch's antics eventually grow tiresome -- it's more fun to watch the old Warner Bros. toon gang get wild and crazy than this Gremlins toss-off...

Overall, though the message is solid, it is too convoluted and graphic, and even more unfortunately, the music is uninspired and the animation is generic.

[Stitch] would have been stuck somewhere in the back of a closet in the Toy Story films.

June 20, 2002
Despite its charms, and the refreshingly non-traditional characters, Lilo & Stitch seems diluted and too derivative to be as effective as one wants it to be.

One of the most unpleasant things the studio has ever produced.

Mostly the film is just hectic and homiletic: two parts exhausting Men in Black mayhem to one part family values.
