The Rugrats Movie

The Rugrats Movie

Voices by EG Daily, Christine Cavanaugh. (U)


Those loveable (or, in the case of bullying Angelica, thoroughly unlikeable) animated babies get their own feature-length cartoon as little Tommy (Daily) takes his friends on all sorts of adventures following the birth of his little baby brother Dill.

There are some surprisingly scary notions here for a film aimed at tots (the babies are separated from their parents and have to find their way home), but then they’ve probably seen Jurassic Park on TV, so this will seem positively tame. The cool soundtrack (Lenny Kravitz, Beck, Lisa Loeb) is more likely to be appreciated by grown-ups watching, but this is nonetheless perfect fare for junior fans of the hugely successful TV series. Two more-of-the-same sequels, Rugrats in Paris (2000) and Rugrats Go Wild (2003), which teamed the toddlers with the Wild Thornberrys, followed.

As mentioned above, younger viewers may be scared by the idea of the babies being apart from their parents.
