Released:
1998
Rating:
G
Based on the popular Nickelodeon TV series Rugrats, this is the first full-length feature animated movie to star the little tots. It's the story of diaper-clad kids, told from a baby's point- of-view, and they were one of the hottest-selling toy franchises of the late '90s. The film features a hilarious musical number in the hospital nursery, where newborns have the voices of major rock stars that include Jakob Dylan (Bob Dylan's son), Iggy Pop, Lou Rawls, Lisa Loeb, and Patti Smith, to name a few. The story escalates when self-proclaimed leader Tommy Pickles is thrust into an impossible situation with the birth of his new brother, Dil Pickles. This new kid is grabbing all the attention and won't stop crying. With the help of other toddlers Lil and Phil, Tommy decides that the baby should be returned to the hospital for fixing. They all hop on their little wagon and take a high-speed ride straight into the deep woods where they realize they're lost. Chased around by animals (or so they think), the Rugrats clan must get home in one piece. Other celebrity voices include Whoopi Goldberg and The Rocky Horror Picture Show's Tim Curry, as well as Saturday Night Live's Andrea Martin and David Spade.moreless

    Dil is usually noted by fans as evidence of Rugrats "jumping the shark". He serves absolutely no purpose to the show apparently and his debut significantly lowered the "fun factor" the previous episodes used to have. All in all, the movie's crammed with potty humor, physical humor and a few corny songs, but no big deal. While the movie was alright, I was turned off by Angelica's apparent apathy to the whole situation. She caused to wagon to go astray, and the only thing she's worried about is her stupid doll. Aside from that, it's a good flick for any kid! :)moreless
