    Peter Hartlaub San Francisco Chronicle

    As cluttered as the movie gets before the ending, it's funny throughout, with some 1970s and '80s music thrown in to keep adults happy. show more

    With one of the year's busiest scripts, Little launches 76 zippy minutes. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    If I could find some facet to praise, I'd be glad to do so, but the production's mediocrity is all-pervasive -- story, character, graphic design, even music -- and it all points to a failure of corporate imagination, or maybe just nerve. show more

    Chicken Little is entirely lacking in anything "Disneyesque." show more

    The studio's fresh corps of CG animators may get up to speed before the current four-picture cycle is completed, but if they don't get better material to work with, the sky will be falling along Dopey Drive. show more

    A consistently amusing, often inspired family romp. show more

    Angel Cohn TV Guide

    This wild and unexpected ride should delight younger children with its bright colors and constant chaos, while adults are likely to be charmed by the witty banter, subtle one-liners and a sweet father-son relationship that highlights the need for good communication. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    The movie did make me smile. It didn't make me laugh, and it didn't involve my emotions, or the higher regions of my intellect, for that matter. It's a perfectly acceptable feature cartoon for kids up to a certain age, but it doesn't have the universal appeal of some of the best recent animation. show more

    Robert K. Elder Chicago Tribune

    For all the whiz-bang visuals, however, "Little" could use a little consistency in tone. show more

    Ty Burr Boston Globe

    Shiny and peppy, with some solid laughs and dandy vocal performances, but even a small child may sense how forced this movie is -- how hard it tries to be all things to all audiences. show more
