Jojo Rabbit

Critics Consensus

Jojo Rabbit's blend of irreverent humor and serious ideas definitely won't be to everyone's taste -- but either way, this anti-hate satire is audacious to a fault.

Movie Info

Writer director Taika Waititi (THOR: RAGNAROK, HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE), brings his signature style of humor and pathos to his latest film, JOJO RABBIT, a World War II satire that follows a lonely German boy (Roman Griffin Davis as JoJo) whose world view is turned upside down when he discovers his single mother (Scarlett Johansson) is hiding a young Jewish girl (Thomasin McKenzie) in their attic. Aided only by his idiotic imaginary friend, Adolf Hitler (Taika Waititi), Jojo must confront his blind nationalism.

  • It's a well-meaning idea that never quite succeeds on the levels of either comedy or drama. Call it a noble failure.

  • An awkward, uneven film, with writer-director Taika Waititi conjuring some touching moments, but unable to pull off the magic act this "Rabbit" trick requires.

  • Waititi is trying to strike an impossible balance here, and while he wins a few big battles, he ends up losing the war.

  • There is genuine zest in the unease of "Jojo Rabbit," and it's weirdly convincing as a portrait of childhood under surreal strain.

  • The film doesn't lack for audacity, or ultimate purpose -- it's against hate and in favor of love. But the adaptation isn't funny enough to sustain the style, which owes an overt debt to Mel Brooks and amounts to Springtime for Hitler Youth.

  • Director Taika Waititi's self-described "anti-hate satire" blossoms into a big-hearted black comedy with the thorniest possible subject at its center.
