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

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

The filmmakers apparently believe their audience suffers from ADD, and so they supply breakneck action and screaming sound volumes at all times.

Too mild, too crude by far.

Adults won't need a scratch-card to sniff what's in the air: the stink of a shoddy cartoon movie.

[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.

As one of the characters says, 'I feel like this has all happened before.'

Nickelodeon's Rugrats and The Wild Thornberrys should learn one thing from their combined effort, Rugrats Go Wild: stick to your own kind.

Some might call Rugrats Go Wild a harmless time-killer. But it doesn't just kill time, it tortures and murders it.

The result is rather lackluster.

Sacramento Bee
June 13, 2003
A shrill, pointless animation in which two highly profitable Nickelodeon TV franchises come together with all the finesse of a direct assault.
| Original Score: 1.5/4

Too many boogers, not enough heart.

"Rugrats Go Wild!" combines two successful franchises with woefully tame results.

Like a play date that gets so totally out of hand, you just throw up your hands and just wait for everyone to go home.
| Original Score: 2/4

Not much more than a TV episode writ large -- and probably best strictly as a something-to-do stopgap before the Sinbad cartoon opens next month.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

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.

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