Reviews

Washington Post - Desson Thomson
FernGully is neither weighty nor whiny. It sings its message unobtrusively through -- and for -- the trees. And most importantly, it never forgets to be delightful, for children and their moviegoing guardians.
75
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
The story tells a useful lesson, the jungle inhabitants are amusing, and although the movie is not a masterpiece it's pleasant to watch for its humor and sweetness.
75
Washington Post - Hal Hinson
An animated feature with political agenda -- a didactic cartoon. But that doesn't interfere with its being a whopping good time.
75
Chicago Tribune - Dave Kehr
FernGully is surprisingly courageous in its politics and adventurous in its stylistic choices.

Miami Herald - Bill Cosford
FernGully -- The Last Rainforest is pretty much what you'd expect, only better. It's an animated feature aimed straight at kids and bulging with environmental consciousness, well made and just scary enough to get its point across. [10 Apr 1992, p.G5]
