Trivia

Marked the first use of the infamous Klasky Csupo robot logo (the graffiti logo had been used more for Rugrats before then and, up until a certain point in the series, was still used) by Rugrats media and in the theatrical releases of Nick's movies. See more »

Goofs

At the end the movie, when the parents find them, we see the cars' headlights shine light on the babies' backs; they turn around, but the lights are coming from the wrong direction (when they see Stu and Spike under the bridge, the babies are facing the ranger station, where the cars pull up to, indicating the light should have been in their faces, not at their backs).

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.
