"It was refreshing to see an entertaining movie with a "G" rating.

The story is a little weak but engaging nonetheless.

there is a lot of action,but i still found the movie boring and tedious.

I don't know if I'd see it without taking kids along, but it was surprisingly enjoyable.

Many parents who take their children to see this movie will be bored out of their minds!

It was really disappointing and I found it really dragged on.

Consequently, around the beginning, I found the movie a tad hard to follow.

Of course, the adults in the film are just as entertaining as the Rugrats.

Worth watching!

Overall then a professional and enjoyable film for child fans of the series which fills the running time well.

The most obvious aspect of the movie is its fascinating visualization of a world viewed from people one foot high and no frame of reference for anything.

My 7 year old son enjoyed it except for the singing.

Sure the film has some good parts but mostly it was pretty ordinary and dull which is a shame considering how successful its TV show is and this movie basically put a massive dent on its show.

Bottom line: If you want a good "Rugrats" movies, watch "Rugrats In Paris", where at least some of the jokes don't speak down to kids, and the plot and such is mildly enjoyable (if again implausible).

"The Rugrats Movie" is a really fun, enjoyable movie for more than just kids.

The familiar artwork is breathtaking and fares far better than the recent DOUG in movie form.

Nickelodeon and Klasky-Cuspo has made one exciting film.

A disappointing feature-length adaptation of the enjoyable TV show.

Imagery, always compelling.

Overall this is a decent and mildly entertaining film.

The Rugrats Movie falls somewhere in the middle, being engaging enough for adults without really having that much specifically for them.

The kids are so sweet it's amazing and the whole film is stunning.

For me, that loudness is okay for awhile, but it gets tiresome.

A solid, colourful and enjoyable film .

One day, under the supervision of their sleeping grandfather, they decide to go on an adventure in the wilderness, which causes a bunch of boring and literally agonizing commotion that lasts and lasts and lasts…for over 80 minutes.

The part where the babies get lost and stuck in the forest and wonder around aimlessly in hopes of getting back home, drag on WAY too long and Dil's overall presence in the movie is more irritating than it is pleasing to the typical viewer.
