The Rugrats go global!

The Rugrats go to Paris after Tommy's father gets a call from Coco to come to Paris to see Reptar. When I seen this movie, I thought it was going to be good, and it was good! There are some gross rumored (G rated), Coco is seemed to hate children, and Chuckie is sad because he does not have a mom.

This title has:

Too much violence
Educational value
Great messages
Great role models
age 4+
Nickelodeon-style fun. The plot is effectively character-driven. Catchy songs. Great celebrity voice-acting.
