All Critics (22) | Top Critics (11) | Fresh (13) | Rotten (9)

  • The production values are first rate. But you will wait in vain to hear a good reason for this movie's existence.

    October 30, 2009 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • At a time when Hollywood doesn't remember last year, is obsessed with the bottom line and is run by men who often have no sense of history, Walt & El Grupo evokes a better time.

    October 22, 2009 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • While skimming over the troubled waters of impending war and ongoing labor unrest, it's both a vicarious vacation and a crash course in animation.

    October 21, 2009 | Rating: 3/4
  • [Thomas] may need more distance from the subject -- Walt & El Grupo could shed about 20 minutes -- but there's no questioning his sincerity or his instinct for revealing anecdotes.

    September 24, 2009 | Rating: 3/4
  • This may be the first documentary that contains not a single American, living or dead, who is anything but merry of disposition. That cheer carries over to the on-the-spot gusto of el grupo's sketchbooks -- a more accurate tribute than the final cartoons.

    September 21, 2009 | Full Review…
  • A relentlessly upbeat vanity project destined for the Disney family archive.

    September 11, 2009 | Rating: 2.5/5
