Crazy Credits

After the credits there is an additional scene of the goat bucking the Reptar wagon down the street with Grandpa Lou inside napping. Edmund (Suzie's older brother) comes out of his house and waves as he watches them go down the street. After the scene ends, the Klasky Csupo logo and the Paramount logo are shown. The Klasky Csupo logo shown is different from the logo shown in the seasons leading up to the movie. See more »

A Cute Film
1 January 2005 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

I remember seeing this movie when I was eleven years old in theaters. I saw it the opening weekend and then again two weeks later. I have always been a fan of the Rugrats ever since it started back in 1991 when I was four years old.

The plot of the movie evolves around the addition of Tommy's new baby brother Dil. The part when Tommy and Dil were alone in the woods together was so sad and cute. I also liked how there were many different parts occurring at the same time. Plus the songs on the movie were very catchy especially the one Angelica sang while looking for Cynthia.

Overall this movie was really good. However this movie led to the downfall of the "Rugrats". I give this movie 10/10 stars.
