Top Critic Reviews

Fresh: The pleasant surprise is that the film is a delight.

- Anita Gates, New York Times, Saturday, January 1, 2000

Fresh: Diaper-loads of fun.

- Chris Gore, Film Threat, Thursday, June 24, 2010

Rotten: An embarrassingly juvenile production that would seem more at home in the midst of Saturday morning cartoons than on a big screen.

- James Berardinelli, ReelViews, Saturday, January 1, 2000

Audience Reviews

"She's having a baby not a gefilte fish" - I was almost rolling on the floor laughing loudly when hearing this dialogue. This is exactly like the one shown on Nickelodeon.

It's hilarious, and it captures the originality and humor of the series on Nickelodeon.

The first big screen outing for the Rugrats is surprisingly a decent effort. The characters are well defined like the show, and its a lot of fun from start to finish. It never feels too stretched either.
