The Rugrats and family become stranded on an island, and Stu Pickles (Jack Riley) is blamed. The kids wander off into the jungle, and Spike (Bruce Willis) loses his sense of smell due to sneezing. This becomes a problem when a clouded leopard named Siri (Chrissie Hynde) finds out about the babies and goes after them, and the situation only gets worse when the kids become trapped underwater with an amnesic Nigel Thornberry (Tim Curry), losing oxygen fast.
Did You Know?
(At around one hour and five minutes) Angelica Pickles (Cheryl Chase) soils her pants in the little submarine (bathysphere) at the climax of this movie. It is so obvious that no other explanation for Nigel Thornberry (Tim Curry) saying, "Somebody needs a diaper change. I won't say whom!" makes sense. He even winks at her, as the other Rugrats laugh, because they know that to be the only reason she wouldn't yell-out the name of the one who did it. This was her comeuppance for being mean to everyone, including Nigel, all day. See more
