I was entertained. The music is great. However, sections drag and there are too many bland characters.

[T]he first animated feature from the new Disney studio regime, which is promising one such picture each year. Their first effort, measured against the Disney legacy of classics, is not up to the highest standard.

''Oliver & Company'' is impoverished technically, and it is also impoverished emotionally.
August 17, 2013
Suffers from a rote storyline and flat animation.
November 24, 2009
Quite insipid and wretchedly unengaging.
November 13, 2009
The computer-assisted animation is relatively stiff and inexpressive.
November 13, 2009
Lacks the classic Disney charm that works for adults as well as kids.
November 13, 2009
The general quality of the animation and script would disappoint more sophisticated viewers.

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.

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.
January 29, 2009
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.

Pure '80s drivel.
August 1, 2003
...the virtual nadir of the Disney oeuvre.
May 21, 2003
It is incomprehensible how 'Oliver and Company could have issued from the studio that set the standards by which all animated films have been judged for nearly 60 years.
March 11, 2003
Simply put, Oliver & Company didn't work for me not because I'm many years past my sixth birthday but because it never scared me into forgetting that fact.
