Lively characters, snappy dialogue, and snazzy visuals make this an uncommonly fine animation.

With braces on her teeth and preteen gawkiness, Eliza's a nerdy girl on the surface, but her backbone and chutzpah manage to save human and animal family alike. Move over Bond; this girl deserves a sequel.

Chicago Sun-Times
An energetic and eccentric animated cartoon.

It all adds up to a cheekier "Lion King" on a lower budget. But what you miss in spectacle you will make up in laughs.

The movie features a musical score aimed more at boomer parents than their tykes.

Philadelphia Inquirer
A clever feature-length cartoon just as entertaining as the hit Nickelodeon series on which it is based.

New York Post
Smart, funny and good-looking animation.

Entertainment Weekly
An average kid-empowerment fantasy with slightly above-average brains.

Fans of the animated wildlife adventure show will be in warthog heaven; others need not necessarily apply.

New York Daily News
So well intentioned that its flaws may be generously overlooked by parents desperately planning activities for school breaks.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
Moderately witty children's entertainment.
