There's probably not much of an audience for Elmo in Grouchland beyond the toddler crowd.

New York Daily News
Gentle, funny and full of the lessons one expects from the scions of the late Jim Henson.

Full of that wonderful junky, clunky, huggable smartness that has made "Sesame Street'' an enduring phenomenon.

For those in the 3 to 5 bracket, Elmo doesn't often aim wrong.

The film is simplicity itself.

Variety
Too tepid to interest anyone old enough to operate a TV remote control.

It looks as if no one bothered to deliver more than the minimum requirement of magic or artistry.

The somewhat complicated plot may disappoint or confuse some tiny Elmo fans.

Chicago Reader
Elmo's obsessive reaction is never examined, compromising the ability of this rambling minor spectacle to put across its obvious lesson about sharing.
