There's unwieldy mess -- but there's also unruly brilliance to this dark and funny story about the havoc that ensues when a man's uncensored Freudian id is allowed the run of the place.

Wildly uneven collage of effects and live action is no Disney-bland vision of dreams gone bonkers. There's enough Freudian material to reupholster a thousand therapy couches.

Looks like a very cheerful and imaginative accident.
50
Too grotesque for children and just too silly for their parents.

Miami Herald
A shapeless, chaotic, overly frantic comedy that manages to make almost no sense, even if you're paying close attention.

Chicago Tribune
Isn't much more creative than your average gross-out comedy.

Chicago Sun-Times
The movie never takes off; it's a bright idea the filmmakers were unable to breathe life into.

Philadelphia Inquirer
Feels like it's been homogenized and Hollywoodized to death.
25
Boston Globe
For all its antic grasping it lies flatter on the screen than its graphic novel source lies on the page.
25
Baltimore Sun
A raunchy, remorseless "Curious George."
