The humans are little more than dress-extras for the mechanics.
(Variety)
A nightmare... It is aimed at children, but its gory conflicts will scare them out of their wits.
(Richard A. Blake, America)
Won't do any good and it might even do some harm: it could put a dent in any eight-or-ten-year-old's moral development.
(Daphne Merkin, New Leader)
Degenerates into meanness. Not only is the violence vicious and cruel, but Gilliganís girlfriend, Phoebe Cates, tells a nauseating story about why she hates Christmas: her father got stuck in the chimney and died. Is this supposed to be tongue-in-cheek?
(Danny Peary, Guide for the Film Fanatic, 1986)
