"Finally, a new generation of kids can float away on the entrancing cartoon creation of Harry Nilsson (1941-94), the American singer-songwriter who counted the Beatles among his admirers. The Point is a prime example of mass-culture outreach by a countercultural artist (dig the psychedelic number ''P.O.V. Waltz''). B+"
- Ken Tucker, Entertainment Weekly

"Never has nonconformity been celebrated with such charm."
-Jeff Miers, Buffalo News
