Critic Reviews for The Velveteen Rabbit
A low-key charmer that's bound to enchant small children and amuse their parents during many hours of repeat viewings.
A family drama, based on the popular children's book, about how loving makes us real.
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.
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.
These days, even employing the traditional, 2-D cel style of animation seems like a quaint notion.
Audience Reviews for The Velveteen Rabbit
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.
Cute movie with animated characters. Toby is sent by his dad to stay with his strict grandmother. He finds friends in the magic attic when toy come to life in his imagination.
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.
