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

Philadelphia Inquirer
Refreshingly subversive.

If your kid is a fan of Disney's "Recess," one of the hotter properties on ABC's Saturday morning cartoon lineup, the new inspired-by-the-TV-show movie, Recess: School's Out, will be quite a hit.

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.

Chicago Tribune
An amusing and entertaining animated feature, and it's harmless enough for the elementary-school set.

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.

The result is passably speedy on the level of other TV retreads that seem miscast on the big screen.

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

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

Mr. Showbiz
The movie is so slovenly in its animation and graceless in its writing that few viewers over the age of 9 are likely to notice.
