Movie Info

After the death of his mother, Toby Morgan (Matthew Harbour) is sent to spend Christmas with his strict grandmother (Kevin Jubinville). The boy seems destined for an unpleasant holiday -- until he discovers an attic full of magical toys. The happy crew includes a prissy swan (Ellen Burstyn), an overeager horse (Tom Skerritt) and a lovely velveteen rabbit. The rabbit was left to him by his mother and, with its help, Toby might be granted his biggest Christmas wish of all.

Critic Reviews for The Velveteen Rabbit

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (1)

  • A low-key charmer that's bound to enchant small children and amuse their parents during many hours of repeat viewings.

    February 27, 2009
  • A family drama, based on the popular children's book, about how loving makes us real.

    March 19, 2009 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Family film lacks frills but has sweet message for kids.

    February 27, 2009 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The live-action cast may be unknowns, but they're effective enough; the 2-D (drawn and digital) animation is winning; and the story will engross any 8-and-younger with the patience to watch it.

    February 27, 2009 | Rating: 2.5/4
  • While it isn't exactly a classic, it expresses the power of hope in the imaginary world and the importance of communicating our love for one another in the real world.

    February 27, 2009 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • These days, even employing the traditional, 2-D cel style of animation seems like a quaint notion.

Audience Reviews for The Velveteen Rabbit

  • May 22, 2012
    When I saw this movie, it had been years since I glanced at the kid's book the Velveteen Rabbit, and compared to my great memory of the book, I found the movie a little disappointing. But the movie is cute - and for the kids everyone lives happily everafter.

    This movie I think had the absolute WORST line in movie history: "Greater love hath no toy than he than laid down his life for a child." I feel so bad for Tom Skerritt who had to say this line with a straight face. I cracked up hysterically and had to pause the movie to get my giggles out. Despite being SO CORNY at times, this movie was actually quite touching and well-done.
