Tim Brayton @ Antagony & Ecstasy
Francisco Cangiano @ CineXpress [Spanish]
Excerpt: Aunque lamentablemente no añade nada nuevo a su propio universo y/o a su género, The Peanuts Movie sí termina siendo completamente respetuosa de lo que vino antes – demostrando que todavía puede ser relevante a nuestros tiempos.
Robert Cashill @ Popdose.com
Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
Excerpt: plays much like a greatest hits package, an approach that’s just fine for introducing a new generation to Charlie Brown and his gang while giving those more familiar a nostalgia trip.
Andy Crump @ Paste Magazine
Excerpt: They’ve spread too little seven-minute frosting over too much angel-food cake, but the narrative coherency is admirable.
Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
Excerpt: Schulz’ spirit of suburban innocence and down-home sweetness continues with this most recent film adaptation of his comic.
Kenji Fujishima @ Slant Magazine
Hugo Gomes @ Cinematograficamente Falando … [Portuguese]
Susan Granger @ www.susangranger.com
Excerpt: Amiable and satisfying, it’s sweetly nostalgic family fare…
Vadym Grygoriev @ kinoblog.com [Ukrainian]
Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews
Excerpt: The Peanuts Movie is amiable, but if you’re looking for creativity or imagination, you’re watching the wrong movie.
Courtney Howard @ ReelVixen.com
Excerpt: It will make you feel like a kid again, and is destined to make cartoon hearts flutter out of your head.
Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie
Excerpt: The Peanuts Movie is not as moving or deep as the Christmas special but if its G-rating grabs hold of a new generation of kids saturated with superheroes and Spongebob, it will accomplish its mission.
Benjamin Kramer @ The Voracious Filmgoer
Dan Lybarger @ ArkansasOnline.com
Excerpt: While the filmmakers appear to love Charlie Brown (Noah Schnapp) as much as I do, they have great difficulty coming up with a story worthy of him.
[New – 1/22/16] | Alan Mattli @ Facing the Bitter Truth [German]
Excerpt: It’s a nice charming homage to Schulz’s creation, albeit without the potent undercurrent of darkness that ran through the comic strip.
Jared Mobarak @ Jared Mobarak Reviews
Excerpt: The filmmakers found a way to stay true to that trademarked appeal despite rounding out the character designs in a sort of relief 3D. There’s whimsy to the juxtaposition of past and present styles lending it a uniqueness that sets it apart from Dreamworks and Pixar polish.
Stefan Pape @ HeyUGuys
Eddie Pasa @ DC Filmdom
Excerpt: The Peanuts Movie is a dashing slice of nostalgia served up the right way, honoring the man who created the Peanuts world and encouraged us to be our best.
Kristy Puchko @ Pajiba, Comic Book Resources
Excerpt: Just as you’d expect from a “Peanuts” property, the film is cute, sweet and totally inoffensive. But if you’re over the age of six, I suspect you’ll be bored.
Diego Salgado @ Guía del Ocio [Spanish]
Courtney Small @ Cinema Axis
Excerpt: Steve Martino’s film succeeds in part because it never feels like it is a slave to the source material, nor does it veer too far astray from it.
Frank Swietek @ One Guys Opinion
Excerpt: Brings Schulz’s classic creation up-to-date in technical terms while remaining faithful to the spirit and tone of the beloved strip.
