Hayao Miyazaki is off his game with this film that has weaker art and animation than his usual films and a script that needed another draft or two.
(Mark R. Leeper, rec.arts.movies.reviews)
Ponyo is something of a disappointment. Leaving aside the plot deficiencies and storytelling awkwardness, Mr. Miyazaki's latest simply doesn't look good.
(Sonny Bunch, Washington Times)
Never coheres into a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts, as Miyazaki's true classics have done.
(David Cornelius, Flick Filosopher)
One of the anime master's weaker efforts.
(Andrea Gronvall, Chicago Reader)
