Making a kids' movie that's also funny for grown-ups is a very fine line, and Shark Tale has fallen way over the wrong side of it.

The whole experience just makes you feel dirty, patronized and exhausted.

Dreary, damp and derivative.

With all the talent involved, Shark Tale should have been so much better than this.

A surprising dearth of action means kids may tire of this comparatively talky and character-driven film.

Lame undersea kid-flick mob comedy is rotten from head to tail, despite all the talent involved.

Shark Tale feels like a modest step backwards [for CGI films], a regression not visually but conceptually.

... has a few clever ideas and some impressive artwork but relies mostly on weary, recycled humor: it'll likely be a big hit.

Not even the eye candy animation is all that great. The film has a flat look that matches it comedic tone.

A star-studded spectacle that confuses shallow of-the-moment jokes for human emotion.

Quite simply the most middle of the road CG movie I think you'll ever see.

There are a couple of laughs, but for me, it's a film that's mainly just going through the motions.
