    Has a whirligig wit, and 11 songs crammed into its 67 minutes: that's more melodic content than in most Broadway musicals.
  2. Smart and stylish, Disney's Teacher's Pet is one family film that has appeal for adults as well as children.
  3. 80
    Continues Disney's trend of crafting animated movies as much for adult viewers as for their pre-adolescent progeny.

    You don't have to be a fan of the TV show to enjoy watching this dog chase his shtick.
  5. 70
    Impatient adult escorts ought to appreciate the brevity, and their kids should find plenty of good-natured diversion in the film's generally charming story.
  6. More like the kid shows that populate Nickelodeon.
  7. The problem here isn't how the figures look; rather, it's what they do and say -- the story is lame and the dialogue no better.

    The movie was fun to say the least. Entertaining for children and possibly adults as well.
