      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Although it adds little to the long tradition of Dickens adaptations, Spirited is so genially overstuffed that it's easy to at least intermittently enjoy.

      Christy Lemire FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) It just keeps going, my goodness. Nov 30, 2022 Full Review Thelma Adams AARP Movies for Grownups It’s a funny, bouncy romp with strong singing and dancing talent and just the right touch of snark to please any Scrooge. Rated: 4/5 Nov 19, 2022 Full Review Kevin Maher Times (UK) There’s a delightfully eccentric song called Good Afternoon that rocks... The rest of the film is a turgid yawn that struggles with its too-high concept. Rated: 2/5 Nov 18, 2022 Full Review Tamma Moksha The Hindu The chemistry that Ryan Reynolds and Will Ferrell share feels forced, making their friendship feel phony to the audience, for a film whose main attraction is the bromance. Jun 11, 2024 Full Review Kevin Slane Given its 127-minute runtime, “Spirited” could have been even better if director Sean Anders had trimmed some of the self-referential humor and fully embraced the holiday spirit. Rated: 2.5/4 Aug 9, 2023 Full Review Gissane Sophia Marvelous Geeks Media While there’s no such thing as too many Christmas Carol adaptations, Apple TV’s Spirited falls a bit short in its emotional heart as it focuses more closely on the music and the comedic beats.

      Emily Good Holiday movie. Like the Scrooge twist and the flip at the end. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/12/23 Full Review Kuro Easily one of, if not, my favorite Christmas movie now! The story is great! The comedy is excellent! The actors are wonderful! I love the songs and dances and it's just full of that seasonal spirit! Glad this went to theaters cause I would have missed it had it only been on Apple's service. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/06/23 Full Review William C One of the best Christmas movies EVER!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Thomas great musical, humor and story line. Lead actors great in their roles. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/11/23 Full Review Fern Y Clever premise, and I really wanted to love it, but unfortunately the movie was just okay. It had a few clever moments but overall it was just okay. In addition, the movie was way too long. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/10/23 Full Review Karen I loved it! It suits my quirky sense of humor. The dance numbers were fabulous! I look forward to making this a yearly must-watch Christmas movie! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/06/23 Full Review Read all reviews
