"This is one vintage film that fully lives up to its classic status and should play with outstanding success to contemporary audiences of all ages."
- Todd McCarthy, Variety
"This wonderful romp of a movie looks magical on the big screen: colors are a picnic for the eyes, details loom so clearly you can practically touch them and there's a sense of the larger-than-life with a film that's already larger than life."
- Peter Stack, San Francisco Chronicle
"Not only is it wonderfully entertaining, but the issues it addresses, and the way it presents them, are both universal and deeply personal. And therein lies The Wizard of Oz's true magic."
