Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (8 ):
Kids say (20 ):

The characters remain endearing, but situations aren't quite as hilarious as in the original series. Rugrats built episodes out of the babies' radical misinterpretations of the adult world. The stories in All Grown Up are thoughtfully crafted but less satiric, focusing on more standard preteen fare such as handling the emotions of jealousy and embarrassment, becoming an individual, and experiencing a first crush. Kids who grew up with Rugrats will enjoy seeing these familiar characters deal with middle school. Real middle-schoolers, though, are likely to find the cartoon too juvenile. The parents are often oblivious to their kids' struggles and antics, but family members generally value and respect each other and sibling relationships are especially positive.
