3 stars out of 5 -- "[L]ively and amusing....ARTHUR is at its best during a world tour that takes McAvoy, his granddad and their sleigh from Toronto to the Serengeti."
Los Angeles Times
11/23/2011
"[A] tender and upbeat spirit informs the writing and the execution."
Box Office
11/22/2011
3 stars out of 5 -- "Animation here is top notch....It does have a secret weapon in its stellar, mostly British voice cast lead by McAvoy who brings a nice sense of sweetness and sincerity to his likeable goofball Arthur."
USA Today
11/22/2011
"What makes ARTHUR sing is that it plays as much like a family comedy as a holiday film."
New York Times
11/23/2011
"[T]his scrappy, smart animated tale can hold its own against the rest of the genre....The script by Peter Baynham and Sarah Smith has plenty of sly jokes for grown-ups."
Movieline
11/22/2011
"[W]ith an avalanche of charm, wit, and enlivening, highly oxygenated performances....[A] fleet, sweet-natured film."
Hollywood Reporter
11/09/2011
"[A]n endlessly amusing 3D, CG-animated Yuletide romp with lively innovation at every turn and a dream voice cast headed by James McAvoy, Hugh Laurie and Bill Nighy."
Washington Post
11/23/2011
3 stars out of 4 -- "[A] worthy addition to the Christmas movie canon. It's funny and good-looking, with an impeccable voice cast of U.K. actors."
A.V. Club
11/22/2011
"[It] strikes just the right combination of naughty and nice, reverent and irrelevant, holiday-sweet and Aardman dry." -- Grade: B+
Entertainment Weekly
12/02/2011
"[It's] genuinely sweet, and the complicated relations among Santa's clan are surprisingly believable." -- Grade: B+
