    One of my favorite Disney movies.

    This may have been the first film I saw at the theaters without my parents. I remember going to see it with my neighbor Kalle (though it probably was his older brother Ville, who was my age, at 7-8 years old). Given that the movie opened in 1977, this was a likely matinee showing during summer of 1978. I remember loving the film and then returning to the theater to see it again the next day. This also was a first.

    I saw the film again last year (2013) on dvd with my wife and still REALLY liked it.

    Bob Newhart does wonders as being a worried mouse. I found the whole concept interesting though. Having animal rescuers who work like the Red Cross. It isn't as good as "The Many Adventures of Winnie The Pooh" in my opinion, but still enjoyable. The animation looks odd and out of place at time. Sometimes it looks cheaply made; mostly with Medusa. Medusa is fairly creepy as a villain, but forgettable. Her only real motive is to make money. The film…

    I remember loving this when I was 6 or 7. I can't imagine why. The only things that I remembered about it were the song "Someone is Waiting" and the two alligators, who are drawn a lot more like crocodiles. That I do understand, as those are the best things about the movie. My main observations are: some of the backdrops are so stylistically different from scene to scene, that it's easy to tell there were different animators; and the…

    Watching this decades later is very disorienting, because it's not at all what I expect from children's animation. The pacing's slack, and instead of comedy or action the film exudes pure, naked sentimentality. Especially when the soft voice of Shelby Flint comes on the soundtrack (performing some wispy, instantly forgettable songs) it's as if The Rescuers is trying to squeeze tears out of its viewers' eyes like juice from a lemon. This is a very old-fashioned, very simple melodrama to…

    A bizarre setting and dark themes mesh well to create a unique bayou experience.

    Whilst The Rescuers is Disney at heart, it's a bleak and often frightening tale of Penny, a little orphan girl longing for a better life, it feels a bit Don Bluth in its exposition.

    Penny lives down in the Devil's Bayou under the gruelling rule of Madame Medusa where she is forced in to daily ordeal of searching for a diamond called The Devil's Eye, in a deep, dark cavern.

    Fed up with life, Penny writes for help and dispatches…

    Much like the Hunchback of Notre Dame, the Rescuers (1977) is one of Disney's more overlooked titles. I couldn't even count how many times I've seen this, the mice are a cute couple. This title deserves more recognition.

    Ugh. The lowest low for Disney animation up to this point in time. It starts with absolutely horrible animation; it looks cheap, more of the quality of a Saturday morning cartoon (and not a Disney Saturday morning cartoon, but a Hanna Barbera one). It continues with a weak plot and weak characters. It's not that the actors are bad; I love Bob Newhart! But he's given nothing to do in this film. The script is dull, with few jokes (and…

    The Rescuers is one of the most dark and gloomy Disney animated movies, but also one of the laziest. The characters are decent and the story is actually pretty interesting, but it's overall a pretty forgettable film.
