Storyline

In the city of Townsville, the frustrated Professor Utonium is gathering all the ingredients to make a perfect little girl (sugar, spice, and everything nice). But when his lab assitant, a monkey named Jojo, causes the accidental addition of Chemical X to the mix, the Professor ends up with not one but 3 perfect, powerful little girls. It soon becomes obvious that Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup are not normal girls, they have superpowers and have not yet learned to control. The girls are treated like outcasts because they have inadvertently wrecked Townsville in a superpowered game of tag. To win the hearts of the people of Townsville, the girls are tricked into making a deal with Jojo who plans to take over Townsville. As the girls foil this threat and defeat an army of superpowered monkeys, the Powerpuff Girls learn that with great power comes great responsibility. Written by Britney

Trivia

The plans for Mojo Jojo's "make the city a better place" machine have the serial number "PPG-801." This was Cartoon Network's advertising campaign for the movie before the release date was bumped up. Originally, the film was set to release on 8-01-02 (August 1st). Numerous other references to 801 appear in the film. See more »

Goofs

During the movie's climax, when Mojo has the girls' gripped in his hand as he climbs the skyscraper, they switch from his right hand to his left and back again between shots. See more »

Quotes

Professor Utonium: Girls! You've come...
Mojo Jojo: Quiet! I was afraid of this. They have returned and figured out what their powers can really do. Come. You will make a good power-proof vest.

Mutant Bug-Eyed Weirdos Broke Everything
1 March 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie rocks... so hard.

Not in a teenage boy "XXX" kinda way, or in a preteen girl "Barbie" and/or *NSync kind way... but in a Cinematic, Fun Time at the Movies kinda way.

The cartoon is cute enough, and the writing is always sharp, with little in-jokes or puns thrown in... but how often do grown-ups watch Cartoon Network, anyway? (not often enough, I tell you!)

The film is storyboarded within an inch of its life... each little dramatic beat during the opening credits and up to the girls first day of school is hysterical. Things start to lag again once Mojo Jojo is thrown into the mix, however...

Jojo's trademark repetitive speech seems to have been toned down a bit, unfortunately, as he only occasionally breaks into those spiral Yoda-on-drugs monologues that are so fun to listen to. ("I will now speak the words that I must be speaking to you, for these are the words I will speak until they are spoken..." or whatever).

This is a minor complaint. The girls have to have an arch-nemesis, and to throw Mojo Jojo into the mix (voice of Roger L. Jackson-- a genius) is the best possible choice, like when Batman fought the Joker in the original Tim Burton classic. All other villains pale by comparison.

"PPG" doesn't talk down to kids, nor does it make adults feel like they've wasted their time sitting through this-- like just about every Disney film has that I've seen in the last 2 years. Too bad it didn't get marketed like a real movie.... many people are missing a real treat.

Here's hoping the girls never grow up.... but if they do, I hope I marry one like Buttercup. She kicks butt.

10/10
