The kids will like this animated romp about summer vacation, and so will the adults sitting next to them.
June 24, 2006
Its well characterised comedy of playground manners and teasing social awareness rings confidently through.
July 30, 2001
The film works because it is peppered with sharp, smart, and sometimes wonderfully odd comic moments.
February 16, 2001
Whimsical, engaging.
February 16, 2001
Refreshingly subversive.
February 16, 2001
About as exciting as a lunchbox full of carrot sticks.
February 16, 2001
Passably speedy on the level of other TV retreads that seem miscast on the big screen.
February 16, 2001
It's fun, it's kind of somber and it succeeds in making you think about how you might be squandering middle age.
February 16, 2001
There are times when I wonder why so much energy is expended finding alternatives to funny animals who hit each other with anvils.
February 16, 2001
There's nothing new here, not even the idea of Mikey's singing voice coming from Robert Goulet.
February 16, 2001
A reasonably entertaining cartoon feature aimed at Baby Boomers and their children.
February 16, 2001
Though Recess, the feature film, is far from innovative, it is agreeable.
February 16, 2001
Thematically thoughtful but technically feeble.
February 16, 2001
An appealing, contemporary piece of animation.
February 16, 2001
Although it lacks the zany exuberance of the recent Rugrats in Paris, it's fast-footed and fun. Rugrats in Paris had charms for grownups, however, while Recess: School's Out seems aimed more directly at grade-schoolers.
February 16, 2001
A degradation of the Disney name.
February 15, 2001
Great fun, particularly for kids used to that satirically hard-edged kind of kid show, stuff like Rugrats.
February 15, 2001
A lot of the jokes land.
February 15, 2001
The deadly combo of leaden animation, sorry scriptwriting, and limp pacing throttle every attempt at humor.
February 15, 2001
It will never be mistaken for the usual cut-above Disney animated product.
