Great animation and characters
12 August 1999 | by (By the beach in California!) – See all my reviews

"The Rugrats Movie" is a really fun, enjoyable movie for more than just kids. If you like and/or follow the tv show.. you'll like this movie. Angelica (being my fave character), Tommy, Chuckie, Phil and Lil have gotten into another wacky situation and it's fun watching them say words wrong and stuff.

Watch this movie for a fun ride with GREAT animation (especially on the clouds in the end!)

My rating: 7 out of 10
