Oliver & Company Reviews

March 30, 2016
At just 74 minutes, Oliver and Company is one of the shortest full-length features from Disney, but there's a lot packed into it. While no one will ever mistake Oliver and Company for one of the Disney's golden oldies, it's still doggone entertaining.

Suffers from a rote storyline and flat animation.

Can't compete with Disney classics, but still fun.

Quite insipid and wretchedly unengaging.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10

The computer-assisted animation is relatively stiff and inexpressive.

Lacks the classic Disney charm that works for adults as well as kids

November 13, 2009
The animation is fairly unexciting though serviceable, and the overall mystification of class difference would probably have made Dickens shudder, but kids should find this tolerable enough.
November 13, 2009
The general quality of the animation and script would disappoint more sophisticated viewers.

Even as a cartoon poodle, Bette Midler stops the show.
March 17, 2009
The last gasp of Disney Animation's post-Walt malaise before the 1990s Disney renaissance … retains Dickens's seamy milieu, but not his morality-play tableau.

Far from classic but it is interesting to watch for its take on the pre-Disnified New York landscape following the company's real estate foray into the iconic downtown core.
February 10, 2009
The animation is clumsy, the songs are forgettable, the attempts at late-80s relevance now come across as dated and slightly embarrassing.

I guess I can cut the Mouse House a little slack when it comes to paint-by-numbers mediocrities like Oliver & Company.

More notable for what it isn't than what it is, it's one of the gangly middle children of the Disney animation family, not quite sure how to fit in, or even if it's valued.

Surely one of Disney's weakest full-length animated features, Oliver and Company features terrible, badly dated songs and some shoddy, patchwork animation with precious few dazzling moments.

Much cornball adventure ensues, punctuated by healthy helpings of singing, dancing and general merriment.
June 13, 2005
Animated Dickens makes for a surprisingly successful translation, and in my book Billy Joel can do very little wrong.

Cute but forgettable cartoon musical; a solid voice cast does a decent job.

Pure '80s drivel.

...the virtual nadir of the Disney oeuvre.
