  • Amy Biancolli

    The animation, sparkling and graceful, also ranks as the studio's best traditional work in ages.

    The Princess and the Frog invite viewers to see the world as a lively, mixed-up, even confounding place, to recognize essential parts of ourselves in what we see, and to say: This is what we look like.

  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    What matters is that Tiana triumphs as both a girl and a frog, that dreams are fulfilled, wrongs are righted, love prevails, and music unites not only a princess and a frog but also kids and grown-ups.

    In an amazing year for animation, The Princess and the Frog is up at the top. Go on, give it a big kiss.

    Time Full Review
  • Carrie Rickey

    The film billed as the first Disney animation to boast an African American "princess" is really about a resourceful bootstrapper in New Orleans, a young woman allergic to the fairy-tale pap spoon-fed to young girls.

  • James Berardinelli

    Randy Newman's songs are catchy and are effective within the movie's context, but I can't see any of them having "legs" beyond the screen the way tunes from the earlier animated musicals did.

  • Lawrence Toppman

    Two things keep the film off Disney's top shelf. First, Naveen is a dull hero; his good-natured vanity isn't engaging until late in the story. Second, Newman's songs are less bland than usual but no more memorable.

  • Mike Scott

    Local viewers will be tickled by the wealth of New Orleans details in the production. One of the best just might be in the film's music.

    It's no "Fantasia" or "Sleeping Beauty," but it's no "The Rescuers Down Under," either.

  • Tasha Robinson

    Disney’s triumphant return to hand-drawn 2-D animation still holds an awful lot of familiar, comfort-food charm.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Kirk Honeycutt

    Marks Disney's rediscovery of a strong narrative loaded with vibrant characters and mind-bending, hilarious situations.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Helen O'Hara

    Exactly as good as Musker and Clements’ earlier efforts, so a return to the form of Disney’s early 1990s classics. The animation is gorgeous, the heroine feisty and the animals amusing -- but this may be too scary for the very small.

  • Mary Elizabeth Williams

    The sweetest, most sincere romantic comedy to come along in ages, and a luminous love letter to a great American city. Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    The dialogue is fresh-prince clever, the themes are ageless, the rhythms are riotous and the return to a primal animation style is beautifully executed.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Dan Kois

    Represents a course-correction for Disney's multibillion-dollar princess franchise: It attempts to celebrate the virtues of hard work and pluck, even if the movie itself can feel at times like a lesson rather than an enchantment.

    Slate Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    It's Disney's best traditionally animated outing in ages.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    The Princess and the Frog inspires memories of Disney's Golden Age it doesn't quite live up to, as I've said, but it's spritely and high-spirited, and will allow kids to enjoy it without visually assaulting them.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    Overall, the film is not quite up to "Aladdin" and "The Little Mermaid" from the same directing team of Ron Clements and John Musker, not to mention the recent string of masterpieces from Pixar.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Emphasizes backing up wishes with hard work. That proviso is a thoughtful message for young moviegoers.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Andrea Gronvall

    A welcome return to the Disney tradition of 2-D animation, this lively musical spices up Hans Christian Andersen's "The Frog Prince" by transplanting it to New Orleans in the early 20th century.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    The movie slam-jams its overpacked story in a frenetic, needlessly complicated manner. It lacks for nothing in setting and atmosphere but comes up short where it counts: the characters.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    This is minor Disney at best, forgettable at worst.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    The voice actors are also excellent, especially Michael-Leon Wooley as a bouncy trumpet-playing alligator and Jim Cummings as a lovelorn Cajun firefly.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    Part of the problem with "P&F" is that Tiana and Naveen's connection feels superficial.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • David Fear

    Eye-candy–wise, the film plants a big wet smooch; everything else about this happily-ever-after tale, however, feels like a mere air-kiss.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    It's a worthy cause and an honorable film, the first full-length Disney cartoon with an African-American heroine. But without a strong story, it's a case of one step forward and two steps back.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Scott Foundas

    The Princess and the Frog is pleasantly, if unmemorably, drawn. But the movie as a whole never approaches the wit, cleverness, and storytelling brio of the studio's early-1990s animation renaissance (Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King) or pretty much anything by Pixar.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    It’s not easy being green. But to judge from how this hand-drawn movie addresses, or rather strenuously avoids, race, it is a lot more difficult to be black.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    This cheeky update of a classic fairy tale boasts almost as many talking points as merchandising opportunities.
