Hey Arnold! The Movie

Critics Consensus

Bland, unoriginal, and lacking the wit of the TV series, Hey Arnold is a 30 min cartoon stretched beyond its running time.

    Hey Arnold! The Movie is a fun movie for kids and fans of the show. I loved the show, and this almost was as good.

    Unoriginal script and pretty much the same as the TV show but the animation was a little lighter and crisper to make it feel like a theater movie. Yet you have to be a fan of the show to appreciate anything that is going on, I'd rate this as more of an average Hey Arnold episode more than an average movie.

    The TV show, one of the greatest shows Nickelodeon has ever created, & one of the greatest shows ever made that teaches morals without it even intending to. This movie, the consensus sums it up, perfectly. When the commercials to this movie showed up, it made it seem like it was going to be nothing but fun, some ass-kicking action, & great storytelling. Instead, it was bland, dull, boring, predictable, corny, & unoriginal. Everything an animated movie should not be. I can't say much on the movie because the consensus already summed it up. But I remember my whole family almost wishing to just walk out on the movie, & everyone saying "It was so dumb." It almost ruins the charm & silliness of the original show it's based on, seriously.
