The new school year starts off terrible for Kim. In her ordinary life her best friend is moving away, and in her heroic crime-fighting life, three of the most notorious villains in her world plan to use time travel as a weapon against her.
New circumstances forces Lilo and her alien friends to part ways while Gantu and Dr. Van Hamsterviel create the Stitch clone, Leroy, in order to capture all of the experiments and take over the galaxy.
David Ogden Stiers
Stitch, an alien living on Earth disguised as a dog with his human family, continues his adventures when he discovers that the alien family he never knew he had is now in Hawaii, being hunted down by galactic forces.
Kim and Ron start out a new school year, only to find out that Ron's family is moving to Norway. This puts a strain on their partnership, just as Dr. Drakken, Monkey Fist, and Duff Killigan team up to find and use an ancient time travel device to rule the world. Attacking Kim in the past, present, and future, can these villians succeed? Or will an unforeseen force be more destructive? Written by
As a parent, I love this show. It's hip (far as I can tell, anyway), funny, exciting, teaches gentle moral lessons without an unduly heavy hand, and manages to hint at being sexy without remotely getting close to any boundaries. At its best, KP is better than lots of "Buffy" was.
Alas, this film isn't up to KP's own standard. Like many feature-length excursions from a TV series, it goes off in directions that are not really part of the canon, including some time-travel into the near future that lets us see some things about the characters' destinies that are just not all that interesting.
Regardless, the devotion Kim and her sidekick Ron have for each other, which is--to my mind--the greatest strength of this show, comes through clearly, and that's a good enough reason for KP's fans to see this one. If, however, "Sitch" is your first meeting with the high-school superspy who "can do anything," give the series a try too; it's better than this not-bad film.
