All Critics (76) | Top Critics (20) | Fresh (56) | Rotten (20)

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

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

    January 6, 2002 | Rating: 3.5/5
  • 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.

    January 6, 2002 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • [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.

    January 3, 2002
  • After Monsters, Inc., this movie may be a bit of a letdown, but there are some scenes that will delight elementary -school-age children and older preschoolers.

  • There's barely more invention in the animation than in the concept.

    It stands up there with Monsters, Inc. and Shrek.

    ehhh... generally too kiddish for an adult watching this alone.

    For its time, the animation is actually pretty good in some ways. But overall this is just a funny, well-written kids movie. Nickelodeon going backwards and having this movie preceding the show shortly after was pretty odd as we just had to get used to the characters without having much background, but it worked out somehow.

    Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius is one of my childhood favorites, a must see for all animation lovers.
