The kids will like this animated romp about summer vacation, and so will the adults sitting next to them.

Simply a TV episode blown up for the big screen.
June 24, 2006
Its well characterised comedy of playground manners and teasing social awareness rings confidently through.
December 6, 2005
It has my favorite characters and it's kind of like a mystery.
March 10, 2003
The film never gets too far beyond disposable youth fare, best consumed like mouthfuls of sugary cereal.

If you have to take the kids to a low-rent cartoon, this experience at least is enjoyably trippy.
June 5, 2002
This is a smart story and well paced.

Director Chuck Sheetz spins it into an enjoyable breeze. The humor regularly hits the mark, and the kid lessons are well baked.

These are definitely characters with comedic promise, but the movie is so concerned on establishing its big story, that it leaves them too far behind.

Adults will enjoy it more than they expect.

The film works because it is peppered with sharp, smart, and sometimes wonderfully odd comic moments.

The writing is clever and never patronises its youthful target audience.

Watching this big-screen adaptation of the television cartoon, "Disney's Recess" is about like having recess on a rainy day.

While none of it's anything particularly spectacular or memorable ... it works as needed.

"It's kid-friendly fun."
March 5, 2001
A fast paced actioner built around the growing solidarity between the kids and the teachers.
March 5, 2001
It is amusing and mostly devoid of crude humor, which is worth mentioning with kids' films nowadays.
February 27, 2001
Standard kids movie stuff.
February 20, 2001
Why would people pay movie ticket prices for films that are nothing more than another episode of a television cartoon series that they could stay at home and see for nothing?
