Critic Reviews of "The Wizard"New York TimesMay 20, 2003
Video-addicted kids may well find this exciting, but for anyone old enough to stay out later than 9 P.M. it's a distinct bore.Washington PostJanuary 01, 2000
Hollywood hucksters, zap them, have borrowed from Japanese game-pushers in this shameless attempt to sucker America's children.Chicago Sun-TimesJanuary 01, 2000
It was only after the three kids arrived safely at the championships that I began to question the ethics of the film, which is, among other things, a thinly disguised commercial for Nintendo video games and the Universal studio tour.Antagony & EcstasyJuly 30, 2015
An ad for video games that makes video games look like a peyote hallucination.Cinema CrazedJune 21, 2013
A solid and entertaining road film that is never cloying or abundantly sweet.TV GuideMarch 12, 2010
The runaways' actions provide anything but responsible models for the children who make up the film's target audience, and the likable cast flails against the rampant idiocy and gross commercialism.sbs.isJuly 14, 2007
one of the best movies about the nintendo entertainment system...Arizona Daily StarSeptember 15, 2006

This movie sucks so bad, I didn't even like it in the 80s.Deseret News, Salt Lake CityJanuary 01, 2000
Granted, Nintendo has cornered the video game market, and all the kids in the audience seemed to know each game as it appeared on the screen, but why pander to that Saturday morning commercial television sensibility?
