Boston Globe - Jay Carr
You're never unaware of the calculation underlying this Jetsons movie. Still, it succeeds in teleporting the clan to the movie screen. [6 July 1990, p.61]
TV Guide Magazine - Unnamed
Though by no means a great animated feature, JETSONS does offer unqualified family entertainment, and it even includes a socially responsive message. While the film is neither brilliant nor hilariously funny, it is frequently quite enjoyable, and fans of the Jetsons will not be disappointed.
Washington Post - Hal Hinson
A feature-length version of the popular Hanna-Barbera cartoon series, it's an elaborate social critique done in cartoon terms -- a combination of Care Bears and "Das Kapital." And for what it's worth, it comes closer to having an actual cultural vision than any other movie of the summer. That doesn't mean it's good, mind you, but for kiddies it's colorful and bouncy at least, and for adults it's weird enough to keep you open-mouthed with disbelief.
Chicago Tribune - Dave Kehr
Jetsons: The Movie is a throwaway; with a little effort, it might have been something else. [6 July 1990, p.C]
Miami Herald - Unnamed
The result: Rather than being funky, Jetsons: The Movie is plain fluffy. [6 July 1990, p.G5]
