What matters is that Tiana triumphs as both a girl and a frog, that dreams are fulfilled, wrongs are righted, love prevails, and music unites not only a princess and a frog but also kids and grown-ups.
80
Marks Disney's rediscovery of a strong narrative loaded with vibrant characters and mind-bending, hilarious situations.
80
The dialogue is fresh-prince clever, the themes are ageless, the rhythms are riotous and the return to a primal animation style is beautifully executed.
80
The sweetest, most sincere romantic comedy to come along in ages, and a luminous love letter to a great American city.
75
Emphasizes backing up wishes with hard work. That proviso is a thoughtful message for young moviegoers.
60
Part of the problem with "P&F" is that Tiana and Naveen's connection feels superficial.
60
Eye-candy–wise, the film plants a big wet smooch; everything else about this happily-ever-after tale, however, feels like a mere air-kiss.

Variety
This cheeky update of a classic fairy tale boasts almost as many talking points as merchandising opportunities.

Village Voice
The Princess and the Frog is pleasantly, if unmemorably, drawn. But the movie as a whole never approaches the wit, cleverness, and storytelling brio of the studio's early-1990s animation renaissance (Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King) or pretty much anything by Pixar.
50
It’s not easy being green. But to judge from how this hand-drawn movie addresses, or rather strenuously avoids, race, it is a lot more difficult to be black.
