    Inflammatory talk-show host Morton Downey Jr. sparked, delighted, and quickly faded like a firecracker--not unlike the erratic, quick-fire presentation of his persona in this documentary.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 50 Nick McCarthy
    What results is a lopsided, put-upon narrative of survival where humans, and not the animals themselves, are the ones to be celebrated.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 Nick McCarthy
    This safe, solemn tale of an aged artist whose vitality is briefly revived by a pretty young thing is unconvincing as an articulation of the potentially spiritual nature of the artist/model relationship.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 50 Nick McCarthy
    Unfortunate proof that the animation studio previously known for its brains is now resting a little too heavily on its nominal brawn.

    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Nick McCarthy
    Candy-colored to a potentially cavity-causing degree, the film is a bubbly regurgitation of retrograde romantic comedy tropes and reactionary sexual politics.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Nick McCarthy
    Despite the counter-culture subjects at its core, Daniel Algrant's film possesses a put-upon hipness that cannot mask its disarming dorkiness.
