Like a rollicking adventure from the fevered boyhood imagination of Calvin from Calvin and Hobbes: the gooey aliens, the boy-genius gadgetry. Except with Jimmy it's real.

The characters are comical and dynamic -- especially Jimmy, Carl and Sheen -- and the outer space scenes are no less than stellar.

After seeing this don't be surprised if your toaster goes missing and Jimmy becomes a fixture on big and small screens for years to come.

The story is slow in parts but as this is a Nickelodeon film, it is filled with all sorts of fun moments that children are sure to love.

Apesar da trama engraçadinha, Jimmy Neutron falha em dois aspectos importantes: em seu roteiro e na qualidade de sua animação.

One of those movies that you watch when you've got nothing better to do, munching jelly babies and smiling at the exuberance on the screen

As frothily entertaining as this caper is, it's unlikely to prove as popular with grown-ups as Shrek and the Toy Story movies.

It has some quality computer-generated graphics, while the story and artwork are imaginative.

The ultimate 'love your parents' message is simple and obvious, but the film offers a lot of fun on the way to that end.

Clever, funny, and even has a great lesson.

Children up to age 4 will be diverted, while those from 5 to 10 will secretly pull out their Game Boys. Anyone over 11 will be bored to tears.

This little charmer both celebrates and kids the corny conventions of family sitcoms.

Jimmy Neutron just doesn't have enough power to sustain itself to feature length, though children -- the movie's real audience -- may be so dazzled by the spectacle of Jimmy flying through space with his robot dog that they won't notice.

Jimmy emerges from his debut film as one of Nickelodeon's most promising and compelling characters.

[W]hen they went into the outerspace adventure it just got so silly and it didn't really go anywhere and it just kind of lay dead there.

Jimmy Neutron is one righteously neat piece of glossy animated entertainment.
