“..you get a lot to smile about..”
by Peter Howell [Toronto Star]
2 of 4

“..this might please young kids but torment discerning parents..”
by Jordan Riefe [Boston Phoenix]
“..the film's animation style is second-tier, lacking the attention to background detail of Pixar's efforts..”
by Brent Simon [Screen Daily]
“..passable animated entertainment is stronger on humor than adventure..”
by Stephen Farber [Hollywood Reporter]
Review rate : D+

“..offers crisp animation..”
by Laremy Legel [Film.com]
“..low-rent animation, this might please young kids but torment discerning parents..”

2.5 of 4

“..it still provides a few smiles, and a decent amount of rainy-day, kiddie entertainment..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]
“..has lots of high-flying escapades but fairly low aspirations..”
by Neil Genzlinger [NY Times]
“..feel-good but not cloying, zippy but not frenetic, and refreshingly free of snark, the default setting for a lot of kids' fare these days, the feature takes a pleasingly retro-futuristic stance on matters of decor and attitude..”
by Sheri Linden [LA Times]
“..a lightweight, warp-speed, brightly colored trifle that should delight small children and sporadically amuse their parents..”
by Joe Leydon [Variety]
2 of 4

“.."Earth" is something of a giant - OK, mini-giant - leap forward for The Weinstein Company. It's not much funnier than most of their earlier fare. But at least it's not as ugly as "Hoodwinked," "Doogal" and the rest..”
by Roger Moore [Movie Nation]
1.5 of 5
