Nauseating gags suggest the makers of this eclectically animated adventure... know their audience, though all the Godfather references will be thoroughly puzzling to at least half of it.

With its melange of poo poo humor and pop culture in jokes, Nickelodeon's Rugrats packs appeal for both kids and parents.

Not as fresh as the first film.

The writing team is adept at childish malapropisms and the skewed perspectives of 5-year-olds, but the characterizations and plot lines are witheringly simplistic.

What I enjoyed most about Rugrats II is that the filmmakers are completely aware they must work just as hard to entertain the parents as the diaper set.

The Rugrats are back for an all-new adventure, and one that is by far much funnier and more entertaining for both youngsters and their guardians than the first bigscreen outing.

This effort from Stig Bergqvist and Paul Demeyer is tolerable for indulging adults -- and likely heaven for their own droolers.

There are also nice themes about bravery, honesty and trust, the animation is astonishingly good, and the constant mayhem makes the very obvious plot bearable.

We get nauseating homilies on the values of friendship, family, and parenting and a soundtrack full to bursting with vacuous pop acts.

Fundamentally, a lot like a TV instalment, only bigger, longer, more extravagant. Fine attributes for an animated kidpic really.

Just as good as the last outing, this is great kiddie fare with some filmic references for the adults.

They deserve better than to wind up as collateral damage in Nickelodeon's excursion onto the Mouse King's turf.

Despite its hackneyed premise, the plot has a few imaginative twists, and the pack of Japanese sumo-wrestler waiters who grunt out a karaoke version of Bad Girls are a riot.
