The New York Times
"In some ways his [Anderson's] most fully realized and satisfying film. (...) Amazing ingenuity and skill (...) it is precisely the movie that a child smitten with Roald Dahl’s fiction and fascinated by the enigmas of the adult world would dream of making"  POS

"I found it utterly beguiling and entirely consistent (...) In its cheerful anarchy and brutality it's very Dahlian – in spirit, anyway (…) Rating: ★★★★ (out of 5)"  POS

"Genuinely original: a silly, hilarious and oddly profound adaptation for adult-sized children (…) Rating: ★★★★ (out of 5)"  POS
