The Rugrats and family become stranded on an island, and Stu is blamed. The kids wander off into the jungle, and Spike loses his sense of smell due to sneezing.

A solid, colourful, amusing and enjoyable family film
4 January 2007 | by bob the mooSee all my reviews

Drew offers to take his family and friends on a paradise cruise and everyone is excited. However when it transpires that his "cruise ship" is a tiny fishing boat nobody is that impressed but go along anyway. A perfect storm sees them cast adrift on an uninhabited island. While the adults come to terms with never making it off the island alive the babies are pumped about the whole thing, with Tommy convinced that he can find his idol, Nigel Thornberry somewhere in the rain forest.

Having found the other two Rugrats movies to be reasonably colourful and fun I decided to give this franchise amalgamation a try despite my low expectations. The film does deliver what you expect though and will be loved by fans of both series. The plot is nonsense of course but it gets the two series together well and provides enough story to keep it going with nary a dull moment. Although it is no Pixar, the film does have a lot more adult references than the first two films put together and they did enough to keep me interested. It also helped that the baby humour is minimised and replaced with just solid family humour.

The animation is colourful and warm and flows really well – not the most imaginative stuff but perfect for a family audience. The regular voice cast are all as good as normal in the forms of Curry, Daily, Cartwright and others. Meanwhile the additions of Bruce Willis and Chrissie Hynde are both amusing. Overall then a solid and enjoyable family film – colourful and amusing and worth a look if you are seeking out something to distract a family audience.
