More Info:
  • C.W. Nevius

    It works. "Lizzie" is wholesome, smart and sweet.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Scott Brown

    Let's face it: Lizzie McGuire (Hilary Duff) is just too darn polished to be a junior-high underdog, even by the standards of her 'luxe suburban environs.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Desson Thomson

    Doesn't try to be more than what it is: a romantic fantasy caper.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • David Sterritt

    The action is light and lively all the way, poking inventive fun at everything from nosy little brothers to clueless hotel managers and romantic Romans who aren't as glamorous as they claim to be.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Laine Ewen

    Duff is a charming heroine who carries the movie cheerfully, if not gracefully--the pratfalls come early and often.

    Premiere Full Review
  • Dave Kehr

    The picture unfolds as a light romantic comedy that adults will probably find familiar but tolerable, while their age-appropriate offspring will be transported to new heights of cinematic enchantment.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Allison Benedikt

    By filling in what the story lacks in originality with easy attractions like pretty faces, set to fluffy music, the filmmakers lose the outsider edge the Lizzie McGuire franchise was built on.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Christine Dolen

    The success of The Lizzie McGuire Movie, in which Duff acts and sings while playing both her beloved character and an Italian look-alike, is probably a slam dunk. That doesn't mean it's a great movie.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    Not a single moment of creativity or intrigue is to be found in the big-screen debut of the Disney Channel's most popular sitcom character.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Karen Heller

    Lizzie McGuire is an old-fashioned, harmless dolce, made all the more charming by Duff's winning appeal.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    So who am I to carp that the film trades in the amiable realism of the show for just another watered-down pop star fantasy? Heck, it beats the Olsen twins. But not by much.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Kevin Carr

    Classic adolescent coming-of-age tale.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • J. Hoberman

    Disney's big-screen expansion of their hit TV show is nirvana for the pubescent crowd.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Jean Oppenheimer

    The movie lacks the adult humor of such kid flicks as "Shrek" and "Lilo & Stitch," but the target audience at an advance screening was shrieking with joy throughout.

    Dallas Observer Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    Just two weeks after successfully targeting boys with "Holes," Disney is giving girls something they want with this mild, quasi-romantic romp.

    Variety Full Review
  • Ted Shen

    Director Jim Fall smoothly paces the action while staying true to the girlie thrills (luxury hotels, scenic jaunts, a fashion makeover), delivering an empty-headed but enjoyable romp.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • William Arnold

    So fluffy and sitcom shallow that it makes "Gidget Goes to Rome" and its other many predecessors in the young-American-girl-goes-to-Italy-and-falls-in-love genre look like high art.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    Hilary Duff is beautiful and skilled, and I hope she finds something worthwhile to do with her talent before she truly does become the next Britney Spears and has to start worrying about the next Hilary Duff.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Megan Lehmann

    Lizzie McGuire's "Movie" doesn't try to be anything more than a superficial escapist fantasy for fans of the show.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    The movie is sure to appeal to fans of the show. But when quality family films, such as "Holes" and "Bend It Like Beckham," are also in theaters, why waste your time on this drivel? The answer, of course, is the kids will insist on it.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Chris Kaltenbach

    How much adorable can one person take?

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Angel Cohn

    Fans may be disappointed that some of the show's secondary characters, like Lizzie's pal Miranda, are AWOL from this Prince and the Pauper-style escapade, and some of the scenes involving Gellman are disappointingly flat.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • David Grove

    The film is corny, predictable, and manipulative to the point that you feel like there’s electrodes attached from the screen to your brain, but, by the end of this film, I’ll be damned if I didn’t feel genuine affection for it and Lizzie in particular.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • Gene Seymour

    The movie, with all its brashness and crassness, can still claim noble motives in encouraging insecure young people to seek the pop diva buried deep within.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • David Chute

    The cast of the Disney Channel's Lizzie McGuire romped strenuously through a plot that would be old hat as a two-parter on a sitcom.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Keith Phipps

    As it goes with the TV show, so it goes with the movie, which benefits from being shot largely in Rome and suffers from trying to stretch its sitcom antics to feature length.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Ray Conlogue

    There's not a scrap of imagination in the script.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Jane Horwitz

    If your kids are too young to sit unsupervised, get together with other parents and pay an older sibling or sitter to go.
