fun, silly, cute... exactly what it should be
2 March 2004 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I loved this movie! In the style of a good tween fun comedy, in similar style as such shows like Lizzie McGuire, two very personable best girl friends deal with being unpopular, with no boys to date at the annual school dance, and a fun story of a magical ring that brings a faery-tale like wish that turns two cute pet ratties, Scooter and Spike, into two cute boys for the girls.

Casting was great with this movie, the girls Marci Kornbalm and Summer Weingarten, played by Vanessa Lengies and Caroline Elliott, are a wonderful very likable pair. The movie also has two other sub-plots going on at the same time, with veteran actors Ron Silver, playing the part of Herb Sonic, a lonely shy timid guy who's had a forever crush on the local antique collectibles store owner, a very homely nerdy looking Doris Trowbridge, played by the very funny Kathy Baker, who's wishes of becoming as pretty as her favorite soapstar actress, also come true with the powers of the magical ring, and Herb Sonic trying to find out where Doris disappeared too, making for a very sweet love story. Another story, of the two typically silly neighborhood boys who haven't discovered girls yet, Rod and Tod, keep us laughing at their animated silliness, as they also get in trouble with the magical ring, though they never knew it was magical.

If you like the comedy style of shows like Lizzie McGuire, and like fun G-rated TV tween movies, you'll love Ratz. Fun for the whole family, simple, and even my critical hardcore punk/metal friends loved the movie...

"AIRBAG!!" - Scooter 'n Spike lol... Ratz is great!
