Reviews:
3 stars out of 5 -- "[L]ively and amusing....ARTHUR is at its best during a world tour that takes McAvoy, his granddad and their sleigh from Toronto to the Serengeti." - 12/01/2011 Total Film


"[A] tender and upbeat spirit informs the writing and the execution." - 11/23/2011 Los Angeles Times


3 stars out of 5 -- "Animation here is top notch....It does have a secret weapon in its stellar, mostly British voice cast lead by McAvoy who brings a nice sense of sweetness and sincerity to his likeable goofball Arthur." - 11/22/2011 Box Office


"What makes ARTHUR sing is that it plays as much like a family comedy as a holiday film." - 11/22/2011 USA Today


"[T]his scrappy, smart animated tale can hold its own against the rest of the genre....The script by Peter Baynham and Sarah Smith has plenty of sly jokes for grown-ups." - 11/23/2011 New York Times


"[W]ith an avalanche of charm, wit, and enlivening, highly oxygenated performances....[A] fleet, sweet-natured film." - 11/22/2011 Movieline


"[A]n endlessly amusing 3D, CG-animated Yuletide romp with lively innovation at every turn and a dream voice cast headed by James McAvoy, Hugh Laurie and Bill Nighy." - 11/09/2011 Hollywood Reporter


3 stars out of 4 -- "[A] worthy addition to the Christmas movie canon. It's funny and good-looking, with an impeccable voice cast of U.K. actors." - 11/23/2011 Washington Post


"[It] strikes just the right combination of naughty and nice, reverent and irrelevant, holiday-sweet and Aardman dry." -- Grade: B+ - 11/22/2011 A.V. Club


"[It's] genuinely sweet, and the complicated relations among Santa's clan are surprisingly believable." -- Grade: B+ - 12/02/2011 Entertainment Weekly
