6 July 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

OK. Rugrats WAS an awesome show. They had good plot lines but the show was on t.v. too long. They ruined the reputation they previously had by allowing Nick to take over. Rugrats "all growed up" was an okay movie and a cheap excuse for a television show. I remember as a child running through the door, and grabbing the remote so that i could turn on my favourite show. Then it started to get ridiculous. The simple plot lines where babies outsmart adults morphed into plot lines where they, forced their parents to get married (or not get married), grew up and started dating, and i can't say what else because i found it too pathetic to watch. Nick took a great show and decided that it needed a larger audience (which was totally wrong). They polled people and decided that teens like watching shows about other teens (which is true) and they decided to lose the audience they had and gain a very,very,very small audience. I give the old rug rats a 10 out of 10 and the new rug rats a 0 out of 10 i vote a happy medium with a five out of ten. Good luck to the rest of you forced to watch the pathetic new episodes.
