Simply put, it's terrific.

Boston Globe

By Ty Burr
Almost as funny as it is hyperactive, the new computer-animated family comedy is luscious to look at and as fizzy as a can of soda popped open in your face.

New York Post

By Lou Lumenick
It's hard not to like a PG-rated 'toon that works in references to "Pulp Fiction" and "Fargo," even if Meet the Robinsons, a delightful, quirk-filled riff on "Back to the Future," proceeds in fits and starts.

Chicago Tribune

When it enters the future, it's a new-fangled, old-fashioned jim-dandy of a show.

A visual treat with an engaging story that has an uplifting, but not maudlin, message.

New York Daily News

It takes nearly an hour before Stephen J. Anderson's 3-D, animated comedy Meet the Robinsons begins to make sense, and when it does, the film literally takes off. But unless you're familiar with the children's book by William Joyce from which it's adapted, that first hour is a cluttered, noisy, nearly unendurable mess.

A 3-D fantasy that's lovely to look at but less than delightful to know.

San Francisco Chronicle

By Peter Hartlaub
Frenetically paced but mostly pointless computer-animated film that will satisfy children but may give parents a headache.

Entertainment Weekly

By Lisa Schwarzbaum
Who knows whether the project is meant to be earnest, ironic, post-ironic, made for adults, made for kids, made to teach lessons, or made to be watched in an altered state? All or none...jeez, this thing is one bumpy ride.

The Hollywood Reporter

By Kirk Honeycutt
The most un-Disneylike cartoon yet from Disney animation. The thing is a hellzapoppin' of eccentric characters, zany situations and wacky gizmos, but little effort has gone into making any of this connect with an audience.
