Philadelphia Inquirer
It's aimed at adults as much as children, with jokes that work on multiple levels, and contraptions.

Seattle Post-Intelligencer
People who have seen it seem to be crazy about it.

It will be the most talked-about comedy of summer.

That rare movie, a clever and unabashedly fun adventure that has as many winning moments as it has hen's teeth -- which is quite a lot.

Poetry in motion: It's eggsquisite.

Chicago Reader
A scene set inside the chicken-pie-making machinery proves that the Rube Goldberg formula is infallible.

Rolling Stone
It may sound silly, but Lord and Park conjure up a world of visual miracles.

Chicago Sun-Times
Not only funny and wicked, clever and visually inventive, but . . . kind and sweet. Tender and touching.

USA Today
A little slapstick, a little action, rich characters and a whopping serving of wit. All baked to near-perfection.
78
Austin Chronicle
Absolutely delightful filmmaking, chock-full of gorgeously goofy animation and a storyline that cleverly echoes everything from "Stalag 17" to "Cool Hand Luke."
