Movie Info

When the Rugrats family vacation goes awry, they suddenly find themselves on a deserted island. Hopelessly stuck in the middle of nowhere--without cell phones or cookies!--the Rugrats encounter lizards, leopards and bug eating plants, not to mention the wildest discovery of all--the Thornberrys! But poor Spike isn't having nearly as much fun. His sniffer is on the blink and his reckless Rugrats are wandering through the rainforest alone. Can Eliza Thornberry, who speaks fluent Dog and all animal languages, help the hapless rugmutt find his diapered gang before Siri the white leopard turns their island adventure into a castaway's nightmare?

Critic Reviews for Rugrats Go Wild

All Critics (86) | Top Critics (30)

As matinee probations go, the movie's tainted by too many bad songs and too much of Bruce Willis.

June 17, 2003

[T]his is harmless entertainment for very young children. Everyone else though, will be wriggling in their seats like 2-year-olds with wet diapers.

June 16, 2003

For all the doubling of franchises, Odorama- smelling and smart-aleck references to famous movies and songs, there's nothing particularly bright and charming about the film.

June 13, 2003

The end product is surprisingly engaging, thanks at least in part to a pair of very stinky feet.

June 13, 2003 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

The creators of Rugrats and Thornberrys have done a clever job of figuring crossover points for bringing the two together.

June 13, 2003 | Rating: 3/4

Who would have thought those bright minds at Nickelodeon would come up with a stinker?

Audience Reviews for Rugrats Go Wild


Decent movie to pass away time... but unfortunately should've ended up being what the Jimmy Timmy Power Hour series are right now.

A good crossover but it has one thing i dislike about it, Bruce Willis as Spike. It just seems out of place for him to play Spike

This was both boring and entertaining. Liked their adventures, there was some sad moments.
