News & Interviews for The Rugrats Movie
Critic Reviews for The Rugrats Movie
The dialogue reproduces infantile idiom even as it parodies the baby talk of adults, and a touching, didactic scene involving a baby blanket that's become the object of sibling rivalry may appeal to a broad age range.
Those unfamiliar with the series will have a chance to marvel at Klasky and Csupo's refreshing innovations: their affectionate play with traditional presentations of 'sweet' baby behaviour and 'pretty' toddler looks.
Although it works on two levels, one thing makes it work for any age: the sense of the id unloosed.
It's a fun-filled oddity among G- rated animated movies. But some folks may conclude that the babies' creators have gone off the deep end to satisfy a '90s sensibility that favors edgy entertainment.
Audience Reviews for The Rugrats Movie
Tommy Pickles: Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of yum!
"An adventure for anyone who ever wore diapers."
When I was a little kid, my favorite cartoon on television was Rugrats. I could watch it all day long. I remember watching this movie when I was little as well. I remember liking it, but I also remember, even as a little kid, thinking it wasn't as good as the tv show. This movie is short, and that's one of its few positives. It's got a quick paced feel to it is as well, so the whole film just speeds by. After it does, you're left with a lot of disappointment, especially if you are a lover of the cartoon.
Tommy is excited for the arrival of his new baby brother. When he comes home, everything isn't as great as he thought. The baby cries all the time, and is extremely selfish. When an accident happens leaving the four friends and the new baby on their own in the wilderness with Angelica and Spike on their heels; a search team is put out to find them. The babies battle a wolf and a bunch of monkeys, in order to make it to the lizards house.
Most of the writing for this movie centers around the babies mispronunciation of words. It's cute a few time, but the extent to what it is used gets quite annoying. The songs are annoying as well. I guess that's the lasting impression of The Rugrats Movie. It's annoying. I was annoyed by the adventure, by the situations, by just about everything. It's just a big disappointment.
If you want to introduce your kids to one of the best cartoons ever; do it through the television show and not this sorry excuse for a movie. This doesn't come close having the same fun feeling the series had. A lot of that may come from the television adventures only being fifteen minutes each. When you have to fit a plot into a feature length movie of an hour and twenty minutes, it gets a little harder. So, I'll cut them a little slack.
An okay film version of an okay kids cartoon. It's nothing special, and it's a lot like the show too. Overall, it's okay.
its no masterpiece but it was pretty good
