A heartfelt, hilarious movie that embraces change
9 August 2019 | by lindell-alexSee all my reviews

Even though this show won't appear familiar to people who haven't watched the original Rocko's Modern Life, it managed to exceed my expectations as a standalone film, actually. This was a hilarious movie, and it never once felt like it was just made for the sake of reviving an old show. All of the jokes and characterization of the old show is still there, but it has a message to tell about accepting change, in a world where everything in our lives change rapidly.

It's recommended to check several episodes of the show out first before seeing this special however, as most of the special would be lost without certain context. Regardless, this was one of the best things Nickelodeon has ever decided to green-light and I'm so glad I was able to sat through it the whole way, laughing along with my favorite characters from 20 years ago. If Rocko doesn't get revived in the future (which I doubt), this is the perfect conclusion to wrap the show up in a perfect bow.

In general, this show and this movie are a must watch.
