Goofs

While everyone is at Retroland having the time of their lives, Cindy Vortex is at home with her friend Libby practicing her Tai Chi while Libby is trying to pick out a new ring tone for her phone. There is no scene after that to suggest that Cindy & Libby left the house, so wouldn't they have been home at the time that Cindy's parents were abducted by aliens? Wouldn't they have heard Cindy's parents scream when they were being beamed up? Wouldn't they have saw the other spaceships going around to the other house from Cindy's bedroom window? Because later when everyone gathers at Jimmy's house to get answers about their parents' disappearance Cindy is argumentative about where her parents are and as far as we (the audience) know, she never left the house & was home at the time when her parents were taken.

Goddard was also present at home too when Jimmy's parents were taken. Why didn't he alert Jimmy? Why did he wait until he showed Jimmy the simulation of his parents saying goodnight to him? He could've told/alerted/notified Jimmy about the abduction way beforehand.

Not to mention that later when Jimmy has Goddard do a full on scan of Retroville to scan for any signs of grown ups/parents anywhere within Retroville the scanners says no signs of parents/grown ups anywhere, yet there were possibly several grown ups present at Retroland with their children and those who were operating the rides. So if there are no more grown ups/parents anywhere in Retroville during the time when the kids were all out enjoying themselves at Retroland, then who were operating the rides since children aren't allowed to operate heavy machinery in case of explosion or accident causing harm or death.

Quotes

Jimmy: What girl wants to dance with a guy who looks like he should still be in Gymboree?
Carl: [quietly] I didn't think we liked girls yet, Jim.
Jimmy: Oh, we don't, we don't, no, not yet. However, one day, Carl, an influx of hormones that we can't control will overpower our better judgment and drive us to pursue the female species against our will.

Smart Family Film!
2 January 2002 | by (Miami, Fl) – See all my reviews

I am sure glad that I have gone to see one of the most witty family films in `Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius'. The film does not have an ingenious plot: Jimmy and his friends must save their family who have been abducted by aliens. But boy o boy! It sure does have a very witty screenplay and one-liners that were sure the bomb! It will be very dumb for you not take your family to see `Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius'. **** Good
