Time Out says

2 out of 5 stars
For this animated, rites-of-passage time-passer, the directors have sifted elements of the orthodox teen schoolyard yarn into a rambling folly about a pair of young wolves. Kate, the alpha female of the pack, is ready to find a mate but custom dictates that an alpha female must pair with an alpha male. So where does that leave Humphrey, a clumsy, happy-go-lucky omega male besotted with Kate’s daredevil antics and dandy hairstyle?
To flesh out what could easily be a shorter tale about social mores, rejection and the need to follow your heart, the filmmakers opt for a sideshow of tired quips, weak action sequences and flirtatious fluff. Still, easy-to-please infants will warm to its primary colours and slapstick jollities and won’t be remotely bothered by the dodgy 3D animation and make-do voiceovers – or the fact that the insipidly cute lead characters resemble the occupants of a Polly Pocket playpen.
