Rating:

Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius is the movie adaptation of the five minute shorts on Nickelodeon that follow Jimmy Neutron (Debi Derryberry), a young inventor who has to save the world from aliens. When an alien race called the Yolkians comes to earth in their chicken-shaped spaceship, they abduct all the parents, leaving fake notes to tell kids they have gone on vacation. Jimmy and his friends Carl and Sheen are off having fun at an amusement park against their parents wishes, and on the way home Carl wishes on a shooting star that there would be no more parents so they could have fun all of the time. When Jimmy finds clues that his parents didn't leave the note, he finds the Yolkians in another system. Jimmy takes on the task of organizing all the kids to make rockets from the theme park rides, and they take off into space to try to rescue their parents. The movie led to a successful animated series on Nickelodeon called The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius, as well as video games like Jimmy Neutron vs. Jimmy Negatron and the spin-off film with The Fairly OddParents called the Jimmy Timmy Power Hour. Join the big-haired genius on the interstellar adventure that started it all in Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius.moreless

    Los Angeles Times Gene Seymour

    The movie's clatter and whiz-bang suggests more humor than there actually is.
