Wonder Park tells the story of a magnificent amusement park where the
imagination of a wildly creative girl named June comes alive. One magical day,
June is running through the woods to find her way home where she discovers an
old rollercoaster car and climbs inside. She suddenly finds herself in
Wonderland, an amusement park she had created in her mind and put aside. All of
her rides and characters are brought to life but are falling into disarray
without her. Now, with the help of her fun and lovable park characters, June
will have to put the wonder back in Wonderland before it is lost forever.
Animated Adventure Comedy - While this animated feature is aimed at families and children, there
is a somewhat downbeat idea at its core that isn't revealed in any of
the marketing--a parent fighting a serious illness--that may be of
some concern to parents of very young children. The known names in
the voice cast such as Jennifer Garner, Matthew Broderick, Mila
Kunis, Ken Jeong, and Kenan Thompson only have small supporting roles.
Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Good At times, Wonder Park feels like a square peg in a round hole. It tries something very different from the average kid-focused film and that's not necessarily a bad thing, but the decisions to "play it safe” and dumb down some of the deeply introspective aspects keep it from greatness.
Roger EbertFull Review Average Melancholy in all the wrong ways, this is a mostly forgettable movie that only makes a strong impression when it's being disturbing or saddening in a manner that the film itself seems only dimly aware of.
NY PostFull Review Average The animated movie has animals, relentless positivity and the most predictable journey ever. You must be no more than 4 feet tall to ride this one. The landscapes are lazy, and the voice work from funny actors such as John Oliver, Mila Kunis and Kenan Thompson is unmemorable.
