...THE BORROWERS is a charming, whimsical family adventure....[The film] has fun with the special effects and the cliffhanging adventures...
...A marvel of visual magic....Their hidden miniature world is a clever mosaic...
Rating: 2.5/4 -- a touch of Dickens, a spritz of Rube Goldberg, and a dash of Monty Python Full Review
Rating: 3/4 -- The film is wisely modest in its scope: It sets up the situation, involves us, has fun with the special effects and the cliffhanging adventures, and is over in 83 minutes. Full Review
Shows that courtesy not only keeps civilization humming but benefits all who practice it. Full Review

...Entertaining and imaginative....The effects are fine and the filmmaking refreshingly rich...
...Charming....This visually witty film is perfectly up to date in its technological ambitions...
New York Times
Children's author Mary Norton's storybook creations, the four-inch-tall family of "borrowers" who live among humans and co-opt their possessions, get a first-rate big-screen translation. When a crooked lawyer (a gleefully over-the-top John Goodman) takes over the Lender family's house, he's got to reckon with the "borrowers" therein, who launch a campaign to oust the invader and restore the home to its rightful tenants.
