It's fun, it's kind of somber and it succeeds in making you think about how you might be squandering middle age.

The movie's great fun, particularly for kids used to that satirically hard-edged kind of kid show.

Chicago Sun-Times
It's fast-footed and fun. "Rugrats in Paris" had charms for grownups, however, Recess: School's Out seems aimed more directly at grade-schoolers.

New York Post
A reasonably entertaining cartoon feature.

Entertainment Weekly
Creator producers Paul Germain and Joe Ansolabehere have come up with some unexceptional children and underdeveloped adults.

New York Daily News
Seems to have been made entirely for people who were kids during the Johnson administration.

Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Pretty silly stuff, designed to appeal more to older kids and adults than the toddler brigade.

The movie's uninspired animation (including primitive, blocky computer imagery) doesn't help, nor do its astonishingly stereotyped characters.

Los Angeles Times
Complacent yet competent animation kids will enjoy despite its mundane nature.

The unfortunate thing is that children will probably waste their summers indoors watching "Recess" over and over again.
