Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
Walt Disney's The Little Mermaid is a jolly and inventive animated fantasy - a movie that's so creative and so much fun it deserves comparison with the best Disney work of the past.
New York Daily News - Kathleen Carroll
Audiences of all ages are bound to fall in love with this bubbly, thoroughly enchanting fish story.
The New York Times - Janet Maslin
A marvel of skillful animation, witty songwriting and smart planning. It is designed to delight filmgoers of every conceivable stripe.
Time - Richard Corliss
For 82 minutes, The Little Mermaid reclaims the movie house as a dream palace and the big screen as a window into enchantment. Live-action filmmakers, see this and try to top it. Go on and try.
Los Angeles Times - Michael Wilmington
Impudent, grandiose, a multilevel crowd-pleaser--almost returns the Disney animated features to their glory traditions of the '30s and '40s.
