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?

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

[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.

Audience Reviews for Rugrats Go Wild


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.

I love Rugrats. I like the Wild Thornberry's. I do not care for them together.
