“..time has not been kind to the thin charms of this Shrek wannabe..”
by Lisa Schwarzbaum [Entertainment Weekly]
1 of 4

“..this wasn't just a comically fractured fairy tale, but one with a compellingly fractured narrative as well..”
by Tom Russo [Boston Globe]
2 of 4

“..there's nothing especially noteworthy about Hoodwinked Too! in its 3-D iteration..”
by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer]
“..seems designed to be forgettable - the type of throwaway kid-friendly movie that comes out a month or two before expectations start to rise in the summer..”
by Peter Hartlaub [San Francisco Chronicle]
“..s all-sugar rush, its potential to charm adults and their young charges routinely drowned out by a bigger/faster/jokier ethos..”
by Robert Abele [LA Times]
“..one of the most obnoxious and least necessary animated films of the century thus far..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]
“..more peevish than plucky..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
1 of 4

“..is that rarity - a film in which practically nothing works..”
by Robert W. Butler [Kansas City Star]
1 of 4

“..is memorable for being one of the most obnoxious animated movies of recent years..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
2 of 4

“..has prettier colors, a beefed-up voice cast, and if the plot's no more original than in the first film, at least there are more gags..”
by Roger Moore [Orlando Sentinel]
“..feels as computer-generated as its creepy, talking-ceramic-toy style of animation..”
by Michelle Orange [Village Voice]
2 of 5

“..despite cosmetic surgery, this 3-D sequel reprises the original's formulaic failings: infantile humor, unrelenting wisecracks and popcult references, and flat characters who don't engage one's eyes or interest..”
by Kat Murphy [MSN Movies]
2.5 of 4

“..are irreverent, fast, funky and funny..”
by Bruce DeMara [Toronto Star]

CANTINFLAS :

“..Moreno was famous for verbal innovations and linguistic skill in his portrayal of the underdog, but the film doesn't capture the hilarity it seeks..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

THE LAST OF ROBIN HOOD :

“..but in the end it's a fond, fairly toothless B-movie take on a romance that wasn't so much May-December as straight-up statutory..”
by Leah Greenblatt [Entertainment Weekly]

GHOSTBUSTERS :

“..deliriously inventive, evergreen 1984 family comedy..”
by Tom Huddleston [Time Out London]

AS ABOVE, SO BELOW :

“..boasts sporadically electrifying visuals but a frustratingly messy mythology..”
by Matt Risley [Total Film]

THE CALLING :

“..the puzzle at the centre of the tale just seems so outlandish and preposterous, it's difficult to take the film seriously..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

LIFE OF CRIME :

“..nothing about Life of Crime is going to linger in memory, save the unassuming way Leonard devoted himself to character and story mechanics..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]

THE DAMNED :

“..is The Damned scary? Yes, a bit..”
by Ernest Hardy [Village Voice]

JAMIE MARKS IS DEAD :

“..the film uses its phantasmagoric conceit, a sickly-hued poetry, and eerie sound design to build metaphors for closeted homoeroticism and melancholic unfulfillment..”
by Aaron Hillis [Village Voice]

LAST WEEKEND :

“..the most striking moments in Last Weekend are not the expected ones..”
by Serena Donadoni [Village Voice]

THE CONGRESS :

“..Ari Folman, however, is a filmmaker who, almost to a fault is, determined to make movies in his own inimitable way..”
by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com]
