The Tykes Run Wild in the City of Love.

I'm an adult and I enjoy watching "The Rugrats". The show, like all great children's entertainment, speaks to both adults and kids; it works on several different levels. I was disappointed by the original Rugrats movie and didn't expect too much out of this second outing. I was pleasantly surprised. Though the movie doesn't delve much into the imaginative world of the kids, it is full of imagination and more inspiration than the first picture. I especially liked the GODFATHER and GODZILLA parodies. There's plenty of stuff that kids will find funny (there's at least three poopy references), but there's a lot of stuff that adults will find amusing as well. A movie that's truly for the whole family.

I have seen the 3 big screen Rugrats films and this is by far the best. Lots of laughs. My kids love this one too! Some touching moments involving Chuckie and his dad.

About this movie


The second theatrical film from the popular television show is better than the original surprise hit. Instead of delving into their rich fantasy life, the Rugrats gang goes on a real adventure when their families visit Paris together. Mr. Pickles is brought over to fix his giant Reptar robot, the centerpiece of EuroReptarland (a biting version of the trouble-plagued EuroDisney). The underlying story has Chuckie (the one with the square glasses) looking for a new mommy, as his dad (who has a square personality) starts to fall for a villainous executive (voiced by Susan Sarandon). Soon Paris takes it on the chin as the diaper gang tries to save Chuckie's dad from the altar. The success of the Rugrats is in the writing, where much thought goes into finding comic gems for the adults (there are wonderful parodies ofThe GodfatherandKing Kongthat will sail over kids' heads). The garble-mouthed youngsters keep up their joyful ways in this 78-minute feature that feels no different from their Nickelodeon series except in length, some 3-D animation sequences, and an eclectic song score (with Cyndi Lauper's "I Want a Mom That Will Last Forever" the real catch).
