[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.

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.

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

Though it looks cool in a funky sort of way -- it has characters and situations that likewise feel more than a little pre-fab.

Maybe I'm hopelessly mired in my own private Retroville. After Jimmy Neutron was over, I felt glassy-eyed and a little headachy.

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

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.

Suffers in comparison to the year's other animated fare. Innocuous.

It's certainly nothing worse than a Saturday-morning cartoon. But, aside from the sparkling animation, it's not substantially better either.

This is a kids-only flick and anyone over the age of twelve will be squirming in their seats.

Works better on television.

Dexter's Laboratory, but without the irony.

It's loud -- so it's as though it's trying to over-compensate for a decided lack of heart.

Though Nickelodeon insists the target audience is six to 14 year olds, the plot, characters and design seem far more appropriate for preschoolers.
Jon Munn

Lacks the quality of story, character, humor, and animation that we've come to expect in the seven short years of computer-animated film history.

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