  1. There's a real gee-whiz kick to the fantasy of being the brainiest kid on the planet, and a down-to-earth quality to Jimmy and his not-so-bright, but ever-so-stalwart best buddies.
  2. 80
    A witty, well-crafted comedy that combines primal slapstick with sharp satiric banter to keep children and parents laughing together.
  3. 75
    It doesn't have the little in-jokes that make "Shrek" and "Monsters, Inc." fun for grown-ups. But adults who appreciate the art of animation may enjoy the look of the picture.
  4. 70
    For the sake of more irony--the movie is lousy with it--the precocious characters have an infantile response to the discovery that their parents are missing: all want their mommies after a night of junk-food excess.
  5. Reviewed by: Todd McCarthy
    Moppet appeal of the present feature rests in three can't-miss concepts -- cool gadgets, the desire to see grownups disappear and space travel. Pic delivers on all three points and doesn't have to do a whole lot more.
  6. The movie's clatter and whiz-bang suggests more humor than there actually is.
  7. Reviewed by: Dan Via
    Frenetic and uninvolving.

    Some people don't like the visuals of this show, but it just wouldn't be the same if it were any different. The real thing that makes this show great is the title character and the fun story. Expand

    very entertaining for a CGI movie

    The plot was close to ridiculous, the graphics are great, the voice acting was good and some scenes are cheesy and too predictable. Overall, a good film especially for kids.... Expand

    Although the plot and lead character is fair enough, I only wish the rest of the characters were as humorous as they were animated.

    La pelicula es un desastre destaco la edicion para ser del 2001 por parte de Paramount Pictures, el tema es pesimo ademas de personajes que siempre me han parecido catastroficos. Expand
