Although it's not on a par with the best of Pixar-Disney, this Warner Bros. release recalls the golden age of Looney Tunes in its energy, inventiveness, and subversive humor.

It's mostly didactic, tuneless and dull.
October 11, 2018
Smallfoot may not be on the level of the best Pixar and Dreamworks efforts but it will make passable half-term viewing for family audiences.

The conceit is nicely done, and the film's unexpectedly heartfelt message about empathy and looking at the world through someone else's eyes just about makes up for its bland animation, smart-arsed script and generic clappy-blah songs.
September 28, 2018
Beneath the easy slapstick, there's a timely moral too: Don't fear the unknown, embrace it. Just try not to squish it.
September 28, 2018
"Smallfoot" satisfyingly operates on multiple levels and is much deeper than it appears to be.
September 27, 2018
Hollywood animation, your rut is showing.
September 27, 2018
Smallfoot has its heart in the right place, and mostly works -- managing to convey a pretty thoughtful lesson about tolerance, division and learning to see from the perspective of others within the loud, colorful, computer-rendered trappings of the genre.

This entertaining fantasy has intellectual ballast, but it's cleverly disguised.
September 27, 2018
The movie, directed by Karey Kirkpatrick, has just enough wit and visual invention to get by.
September 27, 2018
A think-for-yourself message makes this somewhat contrived kids' movie worth watching.
September 27, 2018
An animated feature that puts some clever thought into the fantastical, conundrum-filled world it creates.
September 27, 2018
It's a chore to get through the beginning, but builds a strong story, and leaves legitimate good feelings on the way out of the theater.
September 26, 2018
It's not often an animated children's movie features lessons about critical thinking, especially when the movie on the whole is a zippy, silly, zany, cheery little tale with the obligatory upbeat musical numbers.
September 26, 2018
If only the dialogue and visuals matched the daring of its ideology.
September 25, 2018
"Smallfoot" follows a familiar path, it's what it does with the journey that makes it worth watching.
September 25, 2018
It's harmless and toothless and plays well with the young target demographic.
September 21, 2018
Smallfoot doesn't always trust the music's ability to move the story along, so the movie proceeds in fits and starts...
September 20, 2018
Smallfoot really flounders with its obligatory message-mongering.
September 20, 2018
[Smallfoot] offers plenty of opportunities for the kind of physical comedy for which the old Warners teams were renowned.
