With Paris and the babies and their new French friends set out on a quest to make Chuckie's wish come true.
Animated Adventure - Second big-screen Rugrats movie comes across much as the first one
did -- a long version of the TV cartoon. Young children will love
the film, but adults will find it merely tolerable.
After the astonishing (and, to some degree, incomprehensible) success of The Rugrats Movie, it was only a matter of time before a sequel reached theaters. For better or for worse, that time is now. As was true of the first film, this new episode provides solid entertainment for its target age group. Those in the four-to-seven year-old demographic will have little to complain about. All of their favorite characters are there, looking basically the same; there's enough music, color, and adventure to hold their notoriously short attention spans; and the running length isn't excessive. The difference between this Rugrats installment and the last one is that the number of adult-oriented in-jokes and additional "sophisticated" material has increased. Rugrats In Paris is less deficient than its predecessor in finding suitable diversions for the over-the-hill crowd. Granted, the Paramount/Nickelodeon feature doesn't match the average Disney animated effort when it comes to across-the-board entertainment, but it's a step in the right direction.
OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
As expected KIDS LOVED IT! The few teens in attendance also gave it high marks. Most adults, both male and female, rated it towards the higher end of the scale. There were only a few who rated it as low as "Good." So, if your kids like the Rugrats TV show, they'll likely enjoy this big screen version, and you will probably find it somewhat enjoyable.
