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

Trippy fun, but bring some aspirin
8 July 2002 | by (Owensboro, KY) – See all my reviews

Whoo! Talk about the noisiest roller coaster ride you can watch right now! The Powerpuff Girls is 90 minutes of bright neon fun, and it is definitely worth a look, but be warned: some kids and adults may find that the experience is too loud or taxing. I think the creators of the film just didn't know when to quit at some points, throwing a thousand images at the screen in succession for over half a minute until my eyes were just watering. Like when the monkeys are screaming, "I!" "I!" "I!" at the screen one right after the other, or when the Girls are punching everything in sight. After a while, it gets tiresome. If you can take the ride, however, it's a hoot and a holler. There are some groovy action sequences (like the destructive game of tag), great jokes for the kids, adults, and movie-buffs (Jay and Silent Bob are there, man, just look for them!), and some amazing animation. More humor would have been welcome, however, since the Mayor doesn't get a lot of screen time and the Narrator, who's always good for a laugh, only talks at the opening and closing of the movie. Also, we don't get nearly enough of the Girls just by themselves, in moments where the audience can have some down time and just connect with the characters before moving on to the next action sequence. Despite these flaws, PPG is still a must-see flick for those who can bear down and take the pulse-pounding imagery (seriously, Grampa may have a seizure with this one). 3 out of 4 stars.
