Critic Reviews of "The Star (2017)"Time OutNovember 20, 2017
Unless you have tiny, religious children, it's probably best to avoid it.NewsdayNovember 17, 2017
All told, The Star should be a safe bet for families during the upcoming holiday season.RogerEbert.comNovember 17, 2017
This outing is a bit toon-deaf in how it tries having it both ways by mixing the holy with high jinks.Globe and MailNovember 17, 2017
Drifting through brainless slapstick, mixed metaphors, moral high ground and back again, it is the latest entry in a recent procession of communion bread and circuses.AV ClubNovember 16, 2017
Never overcomes the impression that it exists only because it's guaranteed to make a certain sum of money.Washington PostNovember 16, 2017
The movie is sincerely Christian in its outlook, while also a slapstick animal 'toon. It's a mix that works only intermittently. But when it doesn't pop, it thuds.Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)November 26, 2017
A sweet and often (tastefully) funny story of The Nativity told from the perspective of the animals involved.Sunday Times (UK)November 26, 2017
It's reasonably lively, and not impious (if you ask me), but set against the best cartoons, it's not the greatest story ever told.GuardianNovember 24, 2017
Some future shelf life in seminaries seems likely, but as festive treats for kids go, it's like asking for a selection box and being force fed communion wafers instead.Daily Telegraph (UK)November 23, 2017
Delivers ... a preachy, bland and fastidiously inoffensive kind of ersatz fun - a little like those knock-off Christian video games from the early 1990s that mimicked existing hits, but which made you pray for people instead of shoot them.Black Girl NerdsNovember 22, 2017
The children I watched it with seemed engaged enough in the animated hijinks, although the overall design aesthetic seemed to me more reminiscent of an unskippable Clash of Clans ad than the characterful top-shelf animated film its cast suggests.The ListNovember 20, 2017
This is a bible-based, animated adventure for children, with the emphasis on cute comedy and familiar pious tropes; it's somewhat dry and bland, but simplicity and an over-qualified voice cast help see it through.
