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
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the principal voice actresses Cathy Cavadini, Tara Strong and Elizabeth Daily went on strike because they felt they weren't being paid enough to do a movie, so Cartoon Network threatened to replace them with more popular voice actresses for the movie as well as for the TV series. Fortunately, a deal was made and Cavadini, Strong and Daily were able to reprise their respective roles as Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup. See more »

I love the TV show, so naturally I wanted to see this movie. And I really enjoyed it, perhaps it is a little short and one or two parts are repetitive, but as a standalone and as a movie to compliment the series it succeeds wonderfully. The animation is excellent, keeping to the style of the show while adding some promising CGI to it too. The music is energetic and kitsch, the dialogue is hilarious and has a lot of wit and the story with its fast paced kick-ass action and wonderfully chaotic finale is enormously entertaining, it actually felt more than an extended TV episode. The characters are as infectious as ever, the Powerpuff Girls are still cute and Mojo Jojo is a welcome presence, while the voice work is top notch. All in all, great fun and worthy. 8/10 Bethany Cox
