Critic Reviews of "Penelope"Ebert & RoeperMarch 03, 2008
I think it's a sweet film.I.E. WeeklyMarch 02, 2008
A precocious fairy tale made for and starring people too old for whimsyUSA TodayFebruary 29, 2008
While uneven, this Ugly Duckling redux is hipper and funnier than a Disney movie, and the positive message to young girls can't be discounted.Toronto StarFebruary 29, 2008
The semi-satirical treatment of celebrity culture, as Penelope is treated first as a tabloid sensation then a media darling, is lame and dated.Seattle TimesFebruary 29, 2008
Sweet as gingerbread, Penelope deserves to find an audience; those with a taste for happily-ever-afters should look for it, before it too-quickly disappears.San Francisco ChronicleFebruary 29, 2008
Director Palansky and screenwriter Leslie Caveny seem to have many of the right ingredients for creating something beguiling, but the film is, finally, surprisingly pedestrian. What a shame, with all these good performers.TheMovieReport.comAugust 12, 2012
This quirky, snarky contemporary fairy tale could have been a family blockbuster.Looking CloserMay 11, 2010
Penelope suggests that peace comes through character, not cosmetic surgery. In this, it's smarter than Twilight...GuardianOctober 18, 2008
I can truthfully say that watching this abysmal fantasy-comedy is less rewarding than being slapped across the face with a large wet fish.ViewLondonOctober 18, 2008
Watchable but patchy fantasy romance that doesn't quite work, despite strong performances from Ricci and McAvoy.Times (UK)October 18, 2008
A modern-day fairytale, the film is tarted up like a hyperactive five-year-old's lurid fantasy of interior decor.Urban CinefileAugust 29, 2008
Visually stylish, what might have been a cute fantasy becomes tedious due to its banal script and a relentless overload of pig-jokes.
