The Rugrats Movie

Animated adventure for children

If you have ever seen an episode of The Rugrats on TV, then this film won't hold many surprises. It's just an extra long show, which bobs along quite nicely, and you would probably mistake it for a normal episode if you missed the titles at the beginning.

The Pickles have a new baby boy, and Tommy's younger brother gets the unfortunate name Dylan (or Dill for short, gettit, Dill Pickles). Later, whilst the kids are all playing together, Grandpa Pickles falls asleep, and they all get accidently carted off in the back of a lorry, and end up stranded in a forest. Angelica is left in the house, but discovers that the babies and her doll Cynthia are missing, so sets off with the dog to search for them.

When the parents return, a full scale police hunt is started; but after spending the night stranded out in the cold it is actually Mr. Pickles in an experimental toy flying dinosaur who finds and rescues them.

If you've paid money for this, either at the cinema or on video/DVD, you might be a bit disappointed. Your kids will enjoy it, but they'd enjoy watching a couple of episodes on Nickelodeon better. There isn't really anything wrong with the film, but it's nothing special either.
