    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.

    Seems more like a merchandising ploy than a successful attempt to entertain kids and their parents.
  3. Will Rugrats fans love it -- Wee, we -- er, oui, oui.

    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.
  5. Your children are almost certain to have a great time.
  6. 60
    A one- way ticket to infantile heaven.
  7. 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.
  8. 58
    Filled with skewed humor, inventive animation and earthy jokes.
  9. Remarkably poignant (and pungent) when it comes to child psychology.

    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.

    Though animated sequels of popular kids' fare tend to perform lower than their progenitors, this one should buck the trend.
  12. More chic and movie-savvy than its predecessor.
  13. 64
    The frequent song interludes will distract the kids (but send the adults into comas), and the anti-Disney satire rages as never before.

    A rare sequel that's better than the original.
  15. Great movies are sometimes described as filet mignon or champagne, but this one is more like a pacifier.

    Has a soundtrack crammed with infectious music gleaned from fairly surprising sources.
  17. 50
    Where it succeeds smashingly is in the sound department.

    Wildly entertaining.

    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.

    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.

    Packs appeal for both kids and parents.

    A running spoof of "The Godfather" is especially hilarious, as are numerous, sly digs at all things Disney.

    Nicely conveys a family trip abroad as seen from both the exhausted-parent and bewildered-infant points of view.

    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."

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