Revolting Rhymes Reviews

June 20, 2018
This adaptation of Roald Dahl's 1982 parody of nursery rhymes is more Sunday morning cartoon than anything approaching the genius of The Witches.

Dahl's rhymes are undeniably infectious and some of the subversive moments do prove intermittently hilarious, but overall it's just fine, really.

Simply sensational. [Full review in Spanish]

Doesn't capture the same enchantment as either the original fairy tales or Dahl's book, but should get a pass from most indiscriminate children.

A good slice of storybook fun with some funny dark twists...

It's a sly, subversive mash-up of classic tales conveyed in Dahl's waspishly elegant verse.

Jakob Schub and Jan Lachauer have not only preserved Dahl's agile wordplay and amusingly macabre sensibilities, but they've also captured the look of the drawings Quentin Blake illustrated them with.

It's a dark twist on several familiar Roald Dahl fairy tales, with some slightly adult themes and very funny action, all narrated by a rather sage old wolf.

Their voice work, combined with some amusingly expressive animation, and of course, Dahl's peerless writing, means that aside from being just the longest of the nominees, Revolting Rhymes is also one of the very best.

Revolting Rhymes Part One (UK) is based on a Roald Dahl book, and has plenty of the subversive, wry humor you'd expect from the author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Matilda.

The effort isn't quite as good or memorable as some of the shorter competitors, but it should be a lot of fun for anyone familiar with the source material.

The animation isn't terribly fresh or inventive, but the storytelling is engaging and witty.

In my favorite -- Revolting Rhymes -- we're treated to the story of the wolf from Little Red Riding Hood and other fairy tales as filtered through the urbane and slightly macabre sensibilities of Roald Dahl.
