Village Voice by

It's a movie for anyone who, like Miyazaki himself, can still happily commune with his inner five-year-old.


Chicago Sun-Times by Roger Ebert

There is a word to describe Ponyo, and that word is magical. This poetic, visually breathtaking work by the greatest of all animators has such deep charm that adults and children will both be touched.


Variety by Ronnie Scheib

Though targeted at tots, Ponyo may appeal most to jaded adults thirsty for wondrous beauty and unpackaged innocence


The A.V. Club by Tasha Robinson

It’s essentially a stroll through a fantastically detailed pastel world, in which the plot is little more than an excuse for Miyazaki to dive into a world teeming with colorful (and sometimes prehistoric) life.
