Not as good as the first & second, but still a good movie.
16 July 2003 | by (Las Vegas, Nevada) – See all my reviews

Rugrats Go Wild is the third movie about Tommy, Chuckie, Phil, Lil, Angelica & the rest of the Rugrats & their parents get stranded on a deserted island & then meet the Wild Thornberrys. It's funny & entertaining, but there's nothing real interesting throughout the movie. Like for example, in the first one, the conclusion is that the babies are just yards away from the lizard's house & they scare the monkeys away & then there's a wolf ready to eat them & then Spike comes in & saves them & both Spike & the wolf fall to the water making it look like Spike is dead. Then, Stu lands, looking like the lizard. Tommy wishes instead of going home, he wants Spike back. Then, they get both. That was touching. The finale in this is so lame. There were many jokes that kept me entertained. I liked this a little better, because it was in Odorama. A Scratch & Sniff card. I could only really smell the flower. And I could smell the Root Beer & tiny bit. The first 2 Rugrat movies are great movies, this is a good movie. I give the first one 9.3, the second one 9.6 which for me is A-. I give this a 7.9 which for me is a B
