This stylish Disney production is an ideal family film.

Village Voice
A modest, enjoyable fairy tale that easily outcharms its animated stablemates of the past decade.

Washington Post
Fitfully amusing comedy from director and one-time sitcom king Garry Marshall, the fantasy is alive and well among little girls of all ages.

Charlotte Observer
A mixed bag with a huge amount of heart.

Christian Science Monitor
Goes on much too long, stretching a modest story into a marathon that outlasts its welcome by about 30 minutes.

Boston Globe
Unfortunately, the filmmakers seem to have forgotten that comedy is a requisite feature in a comedy.

Miami Herald

This is "Pretty Woman" for children.

Chicago Sun-Times
A march through the swamp of recycled ugly duckling stories, with occasional pauses in the marsh of sitcom cliches and the bog of Idiot Plots.

Salon
