Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: James and the Giant Peach, the latest animated film from Disney, is a technological marvel, arch and innovative with a daringly offbeat visual conception. But it's also a strenuously artful film with a macabre edge that may scare small children. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Nov 11, 2014

Fresh: At its lyrical best, James and the Giant Peach, an adaptation of Roald Dahl's 1961 children's classic, evokes the casual enchantment of a book that, for many kids (including me), cast the spell of a goofily blissed-out mirage. – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, Feb 17, 2012

Fresh: We fully anticipate the wrath of several generations of possessive children when we declare that the new Disney film of James and the Giant Peach is an improvement on Roald Dahl's 1961 backyard fantasy. – Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: An extraordinary achievement. – Jeremy Gerard, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

I sure wish you could buy this movie I have loved it since I was a kid/

At least the book was good

My wife and I loved the book, so we thought we would check out the movie and WOW is it AWFUL! First, I don't have a problem with movies that aren't exactly like the books they are based on, but this was ridiculous! In the book each of the characters were interesting and lovable in their own way, but in the movie made them into annoying stereotypes you've seen a million times. The Centipede is the new yorker (complete with the cigar, wisecracks and jokes about new jersey), The Ladybug is the British Grandma (Think Mrs Potts in Beauty and the Beast, lots of "Why yes dearie" type dialogue), The Grasshopper is the Broadway Showman ("Good Show, my boy!", and yes he has a monocle), The spider has an accent that veers between french and russian. Roald Dahl's writing is so original and imaginative, but this movie took every creative idea swapped them for predictable cliches. Don't get me wrong, I know it's a kids movie, and I'm not expecting high art here, but GOOD GRIEF THIS WAS TERRIBLE! The book was awesome, check it out instead!

absolutely love it!

i grew up watching james and the giant peach, and it's one of my favorite animated films. gotta love tim burton!
