Chicago Sun-Times - Unnamed
Kids 6 to 9 years old will probably enjoy this fare, but as a Hollywoodized classic, it doesn't quite wear the crown. [11 Aug 1995, p.41]

Entertainment Weekly - Unnamed
Watered-down versions of once-winning formulas, with recycled charms best suited to snowbound preteens.
40
TV Guide Magazine - Unnamed
Lame and surprisingly awkward from start to finish.
40
Washington Post - Hal Hinson
Because of the square, lackluster way that director Michael Gottleib has staged his material, the whole production seems sort of limp and perfunctory.

Variety - Leonard Klady
Run-of-the-mill modern retelling in which a schnooky kid is transported to days of yore to revivify the glory of Camelot. But the juvenilization of the hero turns into an ill-fitting concept that unbalances an already fragile fantasy.
