    The cartoon is obnoxious, foolish, and a waste of time. This has terrible animation and is a shameless rip-off of the wonderful art of anime. It is not an original idea at all; girls with super powers and dresses sounds an awful lot like Sailor Moon to me.... Skip this movie. Save your sanity and intelligence.

    The only two things to say about this movie: It's stupid; and...It sucks.

    It was pathetic. Utterly stupid. And it was 87 minutes too long. They should have just made an extended PPG episode!

    Has all of the heart, exciting action and engaging story qualities that made the cartoon it's based off so lovable. This is one television show inspired movie that hits its mark.

    High-larious! Hey, if you luv the cartoon, you'll this, it's not those shows that repeat itself, (eg: Scooby Doo) it's highly entertained and really full of sugar, spice and everything nice! POWERPUFF!

    A Tour de Force for McCracken and company with more monkeys than you can swing a stick at. What more could you want? How about some studio support....Iron Giant anyone?

    The plot is not much and the animation is very simple ( but still attractive). But, compared to other animated films this year, namely Lilo and Stitch and Spirited Away, it is mediocre and unnecessary.

    This movie absolutely ROX!!! I love everything about this movie, plot, animation, voices, everything! This movie almost replaces every movie on the face of this planet. The best, well, almost the best in movie history!!

    The rapid-fire satirical sophistication (scatology notwithstanding) and lovingly rendered pulp surrealism of this sequence should delight adults, while kids will get a charge out of the heroines' grown-up-defying chutzpah.

    Brilliant, wacky, and utterly charming fluff, with millions of mad monkey minions to boot.

    Forgoes that split-level wit to concentrate on mere rock 'em sock 'em mayhem.
