What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Theresa Smith Let the rotten tomatoes flood in.
Laetitia Pople Snaaks by tye.
Rebekah Kendal An inoffensive, big-budget family comedy, complete with the obligatory poop jokes, visual gags, mildly diverting puns and feel-good messages.
|Mail & Guardian|
Shaun de Waal
Peter Feldman The premise is stupid, the laughs are silly and the morality lesson is annoying.
Barry Ronge This quirky comedy is one of the most misunderstood movies of the year.
Eddie Maluleke The movie has some good moments and delivers all-round family entertainment with a pleasant message.
Tiisetso Tlelima In this so-called family comedy, Carell attempts without much success to make the audience laugh at strange faces and silly little dances.
Chad Greene Just say Noah: God stages a not-so-divine intervention.
Adam Nayman Plodding, predictable and sitcom-broad, it's a numbing populist cocktail of slapstick, sentimentality and special effects that, in failing to acknowledge the true tenor of these A.D. (After Dubya) times, feels distressingly au courant.
James Berardinelli Not funny enough, clever enough, or spectacular enough.
Peter Travers It's too lame to be mighty, except in budget that is.
Not enough laughs or even chuckles, and too much reliance on special effects and clearly not enough on the plot.
Tomatometer Big on special effects but short on laughs.
What the People say
