Critic's Review Heading
Good
Sadly, most children's movies these days are of embarrassingly poor quality -- the scripts, which are largely devoid of intelligence, have been written for audiences that frequently don't care. Aside from anything labeled as a "Disney animated classic," parents have become understandably wary of taking their children to the movies. Fortunately, from time-to-time, a solidly entertaining family film comes along with enough pleasures (both subtle and obvious) to captivate viewers of all ages. One reason for Madeline's success is that it eschews the toilet humor and tedious flatulence jokes that have become staples of many so-called family films. With the exception of one "damn," there isn't a vaguely offensive moment in the entire movie. And, while there is a little slapstick humor associated with a couple of inept circus clowns-turned-criminals, the picture doesn't rely on the kind of relentless physical pounding that characters in films like Home Alone and Flubber are subjected to.
