Entertainment Reviews:

Entertainment Weekly - 12/20/1996
"...An ideal rental for the legions of kids..." -- Rating: B+
Variety - 08/05/1996
"...A delightfully twisted fairy tale that artfully juggles broad tom-foolery and sly drollery, along with a generous serving of sight gags enhanced by special effects..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 08/02/1996
"...Darkly comic....MATILDA doesn't condescend to children, it doesn't sentimentalize, and as a result it feels heartfelt and sincere. It's funny too..."
