Critic Reviews for Over the Moon

All Critics (99) | Top Critics (22) | Fresh (80) | Rotten (19)

  • Some reviewers have criticized the film for being too Disney-esque. I'm not sure why that's a bad thing--but I'll grant you that the movie feels comfortably familiar.

  • The acclaimed animator behind such powerful figures as Ariel, Aladdin, Tarzan and Rapunzel has a new heroine and she's going further than any of his creations - the moon.

    October 30, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Over the Moon's emotional journey is solid and well-expressed. Again, it draws on calculated iconography... But Fei Fei's emotional journey is a universal story about feeling pain and learning to move on.

    October 26, 2020 | Full Review…
  • What started off like a mournful but fairly standard fairy-tale becomes, at least for a while, a candy-colored, throbbing extravaganza.

    October 26, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Although the movie is visually impressive, the Chinese-American co-production suffers from a too-thin story, built upon a heavy-handed message soaked in that oldest of Disney tropes: a dead mom.

  • The best fables linger in the heart and mind. This one never makes it past the eyes.

Audience Reviews for Over the Moon

  • Mar 08, 2021
    In understanding the context of how this film came to be and what it was intended for there is no questioning the "why" of its existence, but I might humbly suggest that if you found Over the Moon to be particularly moving that you seek out Jill Culton's underseen Abominable from last year. The two animated films are surprisingly similar with Culton's film succeeding more in the realm of utilizing the folklore and mythical elements of its story to lend real soul to the proceedings. The animation in Glen Keane and John Kahrs film is undeniably breathtaking with the visuals that accompany Fei Fei's trip to the moon certainly matching her expectations as well as ours, but while the film seems to desire a more substantial weight it feels executed more in the vein of a kitschy fantastical tale solely for the kiddos. One won't be mad if they end up spending 90 minutes on this adventure, but I feel the obligation to suggest the comparable Abominable for, even as Over the Moon will sit well, the one with the yeti gets the same job done in a more impactful fashion.
