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
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 »
During the "tag" game in the City of Townsville, the subway exit sign above where Blossom comes out reads "Subway West". When Bubbles brakes to a stop just before Blossom tags her, it changes to "West Subway". Then after Bubbles flies off (and just before the Professor drives up), it becomes "Subway West" again.

I have been a big fan of the Powerpuff Girls for a long time now. As far as I can see all they are meant to be is some rock em sock em cute entertainment for the kids and also, as a bonus, some very very funny entertainment for the adults as well. There are many jokes for the adults that would go nicely over the kids heads but retain their humour for the adults.
Anyone who would go to see this movie is either a) a kid or b) an adult with kids or c) just an adult fan. I fit into the last category and saw it with a friend of mine and haven't laughed so hard for quite a while. The kids in the cinema were also laughing a lot, just at different times to us.
Anyone who goes along and says "This movie is only to market some toys" kinda missed the point of some harmless yet funny entertainment. Of course it's there to market the toys, companies are there to make as much money as they can and if they are providing a good entertaining product then who is to deny them the fruits of their labour.
All up this is a hilarious movie about the genesis of the Powerpuff Girls which has never really been covered beyond the opening credits and as such was interesting for the completion of a storyline and also very funny for the foibles of 3 pre-school aged girls with super powers trying to come to terms with their place in the world.
Many funny moments such as the game of tag through the city (causing massive destruction of course) as well as many many funny monkey jokes, corny as they are.
Enjoy the movie, it doesn't answer any of lifes deep questions, but does fulfil one of lifes deep needs. That of laughter!
