AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic 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.

Critic Reviews for Jojo Rabbit

Taika Waititi's comedy about a budding young Nazi exhausts its satire early...

February 10, 2020 | Full Review…

Combining a tragedy of this proportion with humor, even if it is satirical, is a precarious tightrope walk that director Taika Waititi performs with panache.

January 31, 2020 | Full Review…

Taika Waititi's film is tender, daring, and sharp -- precisely pitched so that it keeps its path steady and its ambitions in check.

January 10, 2020 | Rating: 5/5

I suspect the strangely good-natured feel of the film will win the hearts of many viewers, but my own head remained too muddled by its uneven and oddly indecisive approach to embrace whatever quirky virtues it may possess.

January 5, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The tonal shifts in Jojo Rabbit don't work because they're not seriously intended, the intention here being instead to remain consistently cute.

January 3, 2020 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Taika Waititi's most daring film isn't his most successful. But among the tonal clashes there's real hope, humanity, and no-bones-about-it Nazi-bashing at a time when that's depressingly necessary.
