Critic Reviews of "Shorts"New York Daily NewsAugust 21, 2009
The latest child's-eye adventure from Robert Rodriguez, Shorts doesn't hit the heights of his Spy Kids series. But it provides just enough smart, silly fun for families desperately seeking an easy escape from hazy August humidity.New York PostAugust 21, 2009
The movie is as lumpy and misshapen as a giant booger.Miami HeraldAugust 21, 2009
Shorts may not be destined for long-term greatness -- it feels cheerfully disposable in every way -- but the film is also fast and funny, and grown-ups will not suffer sitting through it.Los Angeles TimesAugust 21, 2009
Yes, I realize this is a kids' movie, but that's no excuse for short-circuiting creativity.Houston ChronicleAugust 21, 2009
My fourth-grader giggled maniacally. The 9-year-old in me did, too.Toronto StarAugust 21, 2009
Be careful what you wish for, Shorts reminds us; you just might get it. Especially if that wishing was along the lines of a smart and funny kids' flick.TheMovieReport.comJanuary 25, 2014
Light, silly fun, amiably performed by both its veteran cast and exuberant young 'uns.sbs.com.auAugust 09, 2010
It is a wildly self-indulgent fantasy adventure that should have gone straight to Youtube, where all 'Dad-thinks-he's-cool-with-a-camera' home videos belong.Cinema CrazedDecember 12, 2009
Chaotic, messy, and horribly mind-numbing...Window to the MoviesDecember 07, 2009
Yes, it's definitely made for the much younger set, but it also has quite a few zany little off guard touches, resulting in genuine laughs for anyone who can appreciate the humor.Cinemalogue.comDecember 06, 2009
...what poignancy is served injecting heavy messages about parenting... into a movie which glorifies the suburban existence, makes light of bullying, and gratuitously employs property destruction for comic effect?Movie MetropolisNovember 20, 2009
...a mishmash of slapstick fights, tiny green men, galumphing alligators, nose picking, giant booger monsters, and endless silliness.
