    The animation is of variable quality; the story is a garbled pastiche of "Oliver Twist" and "Little Miss Marker;" the songs, including four by Charles ("Annie") Strouse, are eminently unhummable. [17 Nov 1989]

Sure, you can find reasons that it would probably offend parents because it deals with issues such as gambling, drinking, and the mafia, but All Dogs Go To Heaven has a lot of heart to it. There is no reason to miss this astonishing animated film because it's a cult classic and it teaches good moral values (Unlike today's animated garbage). A definite must-see for all ages.

It was the last film I ever watched with him and it still holds a very special place in my heart. So is it a perfect film? No. But the critic reviews are way unjust for this film and it does deserve better than what it's received! Personally it's what I'd call a classic that is very much worth a watch and likely you'll find something to enjoy in it. And to this day the ending still makes me cry! No matter how many times I've watched it now. Full Review »

Excellent Don Bluth's animation, the story is funny and touching, enjoyable songs and well detailed characters. Sometime I think this is the last good movie of Don Bluth, apart Anastasia, because I can see that he has put maximum effort and heart in doing. Maybe is bleak and frightening, but of course it's very entertaining Full Review »
