  1. It's fun, it's kind of somber and it succeeds in making you think about how you might be squandering middle age.
  2. Refreshingly subversive.

    It's fast-footed and fun. "Rugrats in Paris" had charms for grownups, however, Recess: School's Out seems aimed more directly at grade-schoolers.

    The result is passably speedy on the level of other TV retreads that seem miscast on the big screen.

    The movie's uninspired animation (including primitive, blocky computer imagery) doesn't help, nor do its astonishingly stereotyped characters.
  6. 40
    A cute send-up of preadolescent stereotypes.

    Animation is dull and characterless, and vocal talent has evidently received blanket direction to, when in doubt, shout.
