Chicago Sun-Times
An intelligent, upbeat, happy movie.

New York Post
The most delightful family movie since "Stuart Little."

The film's full of in-jokes, from the Spanish-language billboards to the name of Banderas' character.

Entertainment Weekly
It's Alan Cumming who takes over the movie as the impish mastermind Fegan Floop.

San Francisco Chronicle
It's entertaining and inoffensive.

By emphasizing surreal humor and fast-paced action instead, Rodriguez has crafted a prepubescent version of James Bond without aping that series' style.

Philadelphia Inquirer
Yummy and weightless.

New York Daily News
An adorable family movie.
75
Chicago Tribune
A throwback to the family films of the 1970s, like one of Disney's goofy capers crossed with "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory."

Miami Herald
If I were 8, I would want to see it 800 times.

Rodriguez has made a movie for kids, and the most and least that can be said about it is that parents, while hardly being catered to, will experience profound relief that the movie knows how to entertain and does so.
