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.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (10 ):

If you haven't seen Rugrats before, you may have a bit of trouble figuring out which babies belong to which parents and what they're all doing in the movie. This movie is very much an extension of the television series; in fact, Nickelodeon televised a prequel to the movie just before its release. But although fans will be more in the know, even newcomers will enjoy the eighty minutes of visual surprises and clever comedy.

Younger kid viewers won't get the touches of social commentary but will find the babies hilarious and their far-fetched adventures exciting. Amidst all the ooey gooey action is a heartfelt story about the love between parents and children. The usually timid Chuckie, whose mommy is in heaven, grows up a little and gets to show his brave side. The expertly voiced cast gets a multiracial boost with the addition of Kira and Kimi, an Asian mother and daughter who are now be regulars on the series.
