“..instead of swinging for the fences, The Book of Life bunts, and still strikes out..”
by Simon Abrams [Village Voice]
“..gloriously colorful animated musical, which almost (but not quite) makes up in visuals what it lacks in snappy dialogue..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]
“..The Book Of Life is gorgeous. Its colorful visual palette..”
by Katie Rife [A.V. Club]
