Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: If the movie, which starts out shakily, improves in the second half, it is a discombobulated grab bag of jokes peopled with characters who have little emotional resonance.
Rotten: What is there to say about a movie that beats its eccentric premise to the ground in the first scene, and doesn't stop?
Fresh: "Toy Story" goes Shakespearean in this animated retelling of the tale of the star-crossed lovers of Verona.
Fresh: Uneven is the course, as the Bard might say, but the ride is plenty of fun.
MUCH BETTER THEN WHAT I HAD EXPECTED!!!
I REALLY HAD NO INTENTION ON SEEING THIS MOVIE, BUT I DID ANYWAY & I WAS REALLY SURPRISED AT HOW GOOD IT WAS. IT'S CUTE, FUNNY, & VERY ENTERTAINING!! IT'S A GREAT KIDS MOVIE & I THINK PARENTS WOULD LIKE IT AS WELL. DEFINITELY RENT IT BEFORE YOU BUY.:D
Not a personal favorite, but it has its good moments...
Disney has been cranking out some great movies lately, including Princess and the Frog, Toy Story 3, and Tangled, so I was equally excited to see this one. The Shakespearian theme is an interesting idea, if not also ambitious, and I know many people were wondering how in the world they could handle the themes of Romeo and Juliet in a way that's suitable for children. They definitely succeeded at keeping it generally light for the young ones, with some funny moments mixed in, but as an adult viewer, I didn't feel the same magic that I did while watching the the three above listed movies. Adults may get bored quickly, and some of of the disputes between the two "gnome families" might be above kids' heads, but again, there's no inappropriate material to worry about, the Elton John music fits in nicely, and it's worth at least one viewing.
I thought it was so cute!
