If you dismiss the flaws and pretty unimaginative plot line, you'll really have some fun with the film...

[T]his is more like a TV sweeps month stunt than the beginning of new chapter of Rugrats history.

Nothing about Rugrats Go Wild is particularly bad or crass; it's just exhaustingly mediocre.
| Original Score: 2.5/5

Unless you're a Nickelodeon executive or a six-year-old who's never heard of Pixar, you'll be fervently hoping such desperate tactics signal the end of this tiresome spin-off franchise.

Rugrats Go Wild boasts tiresome plotlessness, TV-grade animation, and doesn't even propagandize the kids with hearty moral messages
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

As a Rugrats neophyte, I found it hard to understand what makes them so beloved: their voices are shrill and charmless, and so much of the humour springs from grating babytalk.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

Parental love combined with guilt can make you do anything for your child.

Nickelodeon calls this a "crossover" adventure. I call it a crowded movie with too many characters and a tendency toward hyperactivity.

Can adults sit through it with minimal doses of Novocaine from the concession stand? The answer: A qualified yes.

Television-loving children will scream for Rugrats Go Wild!, and in this case, their parents can go ahead and let them-they won't be missing much.

The highlight is when Stu makes like some weird love child of Gilligan and MacGyver and crafts a radio out of a coconut, a razor and a pen.
| Original Score: 5/10

Rugrats Go Wild! is an interesting experiment in character cooperation, but plays out like an extended television episode rather than a well-thought-out feature.
| Original Score: 2/4

Rugrats Go Wild! doesn't have an iota of that sweet, cynical charm that has made the show something parents could watch
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

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.

It's a message movie, as are all kids films these days, but these environmentally-aware messages are sweet and unforced, and well worth hearing.

Your attention never flags, mainly because the filmmakers are so determined to hold it, whether through the thunderous sound, in-your-face imagery or surfeit of (literal) potty humor.

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.
