      Audience Member The point is a cute and charming animated film that can have its pacing issues and dome pretty simple characters, but breaks out solid with some fun and creative moments, good voice acting and a bed time feeling that gives the film a lot of charm. I will recommend you to watch it if you want. Its far from one of the best movies out there, but it is cute in its own way and definitely charming and deserves some attention. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member A sharp adaptation, with Wolf's characteristically minimalist animation style capturing the soft yet ebullient whimsy of Nilsson's album—but of course, that's the point. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member I first saw this movIe as a kid. It's one of my all-time favorites. The music is wonderful and memorable. The themes are great and stand the test of time. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Expected this to be absolute trash, but it was actually really good! ( the music gets a 5/5 too) Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member I'm a huge fan of Harry Nilsson, and I heard about this film through the documentary about him (Who is Harry Nilsson?). I enjoy the film because the animation makes me nostalgic of the Tootsie Pop commercials that ran in the 90s. I also enjoy the story. It teaches a good message about acceptance that is watered down enough for children to enjoy, but not dumbed down so that adults can't enjoy it either. The soundtrack, done by Nilsson, is the best thing about the film. It goes along perfectly with the story, and plays as a commentary about the story. And it's also narrated by Ringo Starr, which is always a plus. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member Everyone needs to see this at least once..

      Kathy Fennessy Seattle Film Blog Through The Point!, [Harry] Nilsson, the boy who grew up without a father, got to live out his fantasy of having one who was there for him. Rated: 3.5/4 Jun 26, 2021 Full Review Kathy Fennessy City Pages, Minneapolis/St. Paul There may be better family films, but few that are more personal and less condescending to young people. Apr 3, 2020 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy The Point is exceptional enough in its charm, its whimsy, its animated style, and its musical lyricism to draw favorable comparisons to The Beatles' classic Yellow Submarine as well as the earliest of the beloved Peanuts TV specials. Rated: 3.5/4 Feb 29, 2020 Full Review Phil Hall Film Threat The film's message about tolerance and self-affirmation should find an audience with today's youngsters. Rated: 3.5/5 Dec 24, 2012 Full Review Read all reviews
