Not only safe for Junior and Grandma but also pretty entertaining.

Turteltaub manages to stitch it all together well enough so that the ludicrous nature of the characters' quest doesn't hit you until the final credits roll.

A mild holiday caper, for the wettest of afternoons.

The treasure hunt is cool in this DVD, it's a whole game of numbers and quizzes go get to some of the Easter eggs.

The film plays on every cliché and every stereotype imaginable, and part of its charm is playing them exactly to an audience's happiest expectations.

The historical touches make the film more akin to classics like "Raiders of the Lost Ark" than to duds like "Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins (and ended simultaneously)".

This is a bravura film that genuinely understands the nature of true family entertainment and provides it in spades.

National Treasure may be dumb and relatively short on action scenes, but it's still a lot of fun, largely thanks to Cage and Bartha.

Few can argue that the movie is totally unbelievable, but if one is able to leave all sense of logic at the door, it's very hard not to have a darn good time in the process.

Stealing the Declaration of Indepenence is easy - making an interesting film is tough!

... a semi-historical mystery-thriller... too many chases and clichés keep this good movie from being great.

Works fairly well as slick, enjoyable hooey… in its general approach if not all particulars, this could represent a promising new approach in family entertainment.

[Cage] ust cannot cut it playing an intellectual, and his Ben is convincing only in the scenes where he is evading bullets or hanging by one hand over an abyss.

As realism, Turtletaub's movie flops. As escapism, though, grab the popcorn, kick your feet up, and have a blast.

About as edgy as a child-friendly TV movie.... And despite being at least a half hour too long, it's great fun while it lasts.

Strangely, I...found myself liking this movie.

It's fun and occasionally amusing and it didn't give me a headache. That's not the sort of endorsement that gets you quoted in the ads, but it's the best I can muster.
