Critic Reviews

  1. Packs appeal for both kids and parents.
  2. Reviewed by: Robert Koehler
    Though animated sequels of popular kids' fare tend to perform lower than their progenitors, this one should buck the trend.
  3. 80
    A running spoof of "The Godfather" is especially hilarious, as are numerous, sly digs at all things Disney.
  4. 75
    The point is, adults can attend this movie with a fair degree of pleasure. That's not always the case with movies for kids, as no parent needs to be reminded. There may even be some moms who insist that the kids need to see this movie. You know who you are.
  5. Remarkably poignant (and pungent) when it comes to child psychology.
  6. Your children are almost certain to have a great time.
  7. 70
    Nicely conveys a family trip abroad as seen from both the exhausted-parent and bewildered-infant points of view.
  8. 67
    If you're a parent, you could do a heck of a lot worse than taking the spawn off to catch Rugrats in Paris and if you're a kid, well, you probably already knew that anyway.
  9. More chic and movie-savvy than its predecessor.
  10. 64
    The frequent song interludes will distract the kids (but send the adults into comas), and the anti-Disney satire rages as never before.
  11. 63
    Seems more like a merchandising ploy than a successful attempt to entertain kids and their parents.
  12. Will Rugrats fans love it -- Wee, we -- er, oui, oui.
  13. Reviewed by: Gemma Files
    Has a soundtrack crammed with infectious music gleaned from fairly surprising sources.
  14. 60
    A one- way ticket to infantile heaven.
  15. A rare sequel that's better than the original.
  16. 58
    Filled with skewed humor, inventive animation and earthy jokes.
  17. 50
    The makers of this eclectically animated adventure, a follow-up to "The Rugrats Movie," know their audience, though all the "Godfather" references will be thoroughly puzzling to at least half of it.
  18. It's a mass of interchangeable moving images, none much more significant than the others, linked to a plot looser than a 2-year-old's shoelaces.
  19. 50
    Isn't novel entertainment, but adults who accompany kids to it are not likely to feel that it is a form of abuse for either of them.
  20. 50
    Predictable and not terribly clever, but among the slim pickings of movies geared to the pre-school and grade-school set, it could be much worse.
  21. 50
    Where it succeeds smashingly is in the sound department.
  22. 50
    All of this film's faults are nearly forgiven for the short but memorable scene of sumo wrestlers singing a karaoke version of "Bad Girls."
  23. Great movies are sometimes described as filet mignon or champagne, but this one is more like a pacifier.

    Its considerably better than the original in both the animation and story. Adults may find it more appealing this time around.
