    Clearly, great fun.

    Brilliant, wacky, and utterly charming fluff, with millions of mad monkey minions to boot.
  3. What's really so appealing about the characters is their resemblance to everyday children. They're wildly energetic, competitive and (sometimes dangerously) impulsive. But they also learn from their mistakes, and their instincts are good. More power to them.
  4. Don't give the kids any sugar before this one -- it's so hyperactive it'll send them into overdrive without it.

    When the Powerpuff Girls blink those soulful dinner-plate peepers, you could forgive them anything - even their movie's wafer-thin excuse for a plot.

    The action sequences are so franticly dizzying that they make "Run Lola Run" look as though it unfolds in slow motion.
  7. While the series is smart enough to have inspired an army of adult fans, too little of its droll intelligence is on view here. Instead, the film feels like a rote effort made for some quick box-office bucks.
