June 24, 2006
This rather mushy combination of animation and live-action remains one of Disney's most controversial efforts.
September 10, 2003
The film is not racist, but it stupidly regurgitates the old myth of happy, singing slaves who just love working on massah's plantation.

Better save this for nostalgia only -- kids won't be missing anything if they never encounter this relic.
March 25, 2006
Apparently the Disney wonder-workers are just a lot of conventional hacks when it comes to telling a story with actors instead of cartoons.

The central drama is only intermittently successful, and not only because any rational modern viewer will be seriously put off by the jolly racial ignorance of it all... but its heart is in the right place.

Warrants watching for its misguided naive look at slavery.
April 14, 2005
A visão deturpada de uma vida feliz de escravidão compromete o filme, mas sua história lúdica e simpática, ressaltada pelo carisma de Baskett, acaba nos conquistando.
| Original Score: 4/5

Song of the South is essentially a nostalgic valentine to a past that never existed, and within those limits, it offers a pleasant, family diversion for holiday afternoons when the children get restless.

If only Disney had been as aware of the environment they were depicting as they were inventive in their combination of live action film, cartoon animation and unforgettable songs.
November 3, 2009
Song of the South's cartoon sequences are as fine as anything produced by the Disney animators.
