Critic Reviews for The Adventures of Pinocchio (Les aventures de Pinocchio)

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (5)

It's the woodsy children's movie Walt Disney didn't want to make: chockablock with mischievous mayhem and light on the sap.

January 1, 2000 | Rating: 3/4

The Adventures of Pinocchio places an animated Pinocchio in a real world, where he looks so out of place that we can scarcely think of him as anything but a special effect.

A bland reworking of the classic tale

November 29, 2007 | Rating: 1/5

Far from Disney, but still quite charming

September 17, 2002 | Rating: 3/5

Borderline-creepy live-action adaptation.

July 26, 2002 | Rating: 2/5

If there is a single reason why this version works so well, it has to be the design of the visual effects (Angus Bickerton) for Pinocchio.

This movie is a travesty. A piece of the original Pinocchio died with the creation of this film.
