    Action Packed is probably my favorite of all in Season 2. It's funny, upbeat, and fresh! The pacing is good too.
  • My least favorite episode of all time.

    1.0
    Okay,the 2nd one was okay,but the 1st one was stupid.Okay,Timmy wishes that his life was an action movie.Now,that episode ruins action movies.I mean,Timmy fighting ninjas and getting chased by a rock.WTH?!They're ruining everything good about action movies.And then in a later episode,they just ruin 3-D too.They think it's a joke but it isn't.Now Smart Packed was okay,but Timmy was such a big fat jerk to A.J and once again,he cheated.See,this is the reason I think Fairy Oddparents went downhill.They're ruining everything.I just hated the 1st episode so much.They ruined action movies.That's all I got to say about this episode in this review.moreless

  • Excellent episode that I liked.

    9.4
    This episode was a good one and I truly enjoyed seeing many parts of it.



    I liked the way Timmy played the Crash Nebula game because it looked cool and also the way A.J kept talking in the telephone and Timmy didn't turn the phone off was really funny and I enjoyed that part of the episode.



    Another thing that was funny about the episode was the way the other school was named Snerd. Also the competition was tough and Timmy forgot about everything and that part didn't ended up good. But the way they won over the other school was great and it should be that way.



    Also the other episode was also good and the way the world was like a live-action movie was great and it was one of the best episodes in the series without a doubt. The way Timmy challenged those ninjas was a very good fight.



    In the other part Jorgen was the main villain of the live-action movie and wanted the power of all the fairies in the world to become more powerful, in which that wasn't a very good part but atleast it was fun seeing Timmy fighting against him for the first time was cool. The way Jorgen's cat attacked him in the face was funny and was a pretty good part in the episode.



    In conclusion for being a great episode I give it a 9.4 superb rating for my review.moreless

  • NOTES (6)

  • ALLUSIONS (8)

    • Dad: Apperance
      The apperance of Dad in the action world is similar to Neo in The Matrix.

    • Music: Mission Impossible
      When Timmy jumps out of a plane, the music in the backround sounds similar to the Mission Impossible Theme.

    • The game console that Timmy is playing with in Smarty Pants resembles closely Playstation One features. The game controller resembles the controllers from the Nintendo SNES controllers

    • Timmy chased by a big rolling boulder

      This is a reference from the famous scene where Inidana Jones is being chased by a huge rolling boulder after he steals the Hovito Idol from an ancient temple in Raiders of the Lost Ark. The way Timmy evaded the boulder seemed to be from Matrix

    • Quizmaster: The category is Potpourri.
      In Smarty Pants, the subject for the last question is "Potpourri", which is also the name of the grab bag category on Jeopardy!

    • Action Timmy: A parody off of Bruce Willis' appearance in the movie Die Hard

    • Dad: The boring dog who can shoot boring hoop
      This is probably a reference to the movie Air Bud, a movie about a dog that can play basketball

    • Wanda: Game Show
      In Smarty Pants, the set-up they used to test Timmy is the set-up for The Weakest Link.
