Time Out says

3 out of 5 stars

The Pixar revolution has left its mark on the world of animation. And a few bodies in its wake. Any attempt to make an animated film without the latest and greatest technology, and without a story that grabs adults as much as (if not more than) it does the kids is considered a bomb. 'Friends Forever' won't go down in film history, but children will enjoy it. The plot has no surprises: a movie star mouse ends up on a farm, where he dazzles everyone recounting adventures that only took place on the screen. With limited resources, 'Friends Forever' manages some good moments: the presentation of the character, in a scene reminiscent of the old days of animation in times of Roger Rabbit, and the way the film plays with film references to treat cinefiles. What they really got right is using the tales of Helme Heine when creating the script, so that its technical limitations can be ignored and the story can stand out.
