Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

Disney’s Pixar acquisition is starting to pay dividends. Executive producer and newly crowned animation CEO John Lasseter reportedly performed extensive storytelling surgery on this gimmicky 3-D sci-fi romp inherited from the previous administration, and the new version is a surprisingly winning mix of orphan pathos, goofy plot twists and non sequitur zingers. What might have been a bland Back to the Future rip-off suddenly hums with a screwball sensibility chockablock with singing gangster frogs and evil bowler hats.
