Here’s what the distributor says about their film: Based on the popular TV series, RUGRATS, this animated movie, RUGRATS IN PARIS THE MOVIE, features a group of outspoken toddlers who, by chance, get to travel to Paris. As the story goes, Chuckie wants a new mother and can think of nothing else. But when the father of his pal Tommy gets assigned to go to Paris on business, taking the whole Rugrats gang with him, Chuckie gets to go on a great adventure, make French friends, and also thinks of a way to get a new mom.

Viewer Comments
We rented this movie for family night and watched it with our children tonight. (Yep, we are too “cheap” to pay the movie theatre rates). I honestly cannot believe the comments that were displayed with this movie. They were all so positive. I found it offensive—a lot of bathroom humor. (Passing gas/poopy diapers/a bag of vomit being carried around etc.) The kids attitudes were pathetic—they treated each other with almost no respect. They were running freely as the parents never seemed to notice that they weren’t about. Chuckies dad was described as “spineless”. I don’t think this movie was acceptable or funny—I think it is yet another example of how not to bring up our children… There is enough rudeness in todays society without showing these examples to young kids.

As a fan of the cartoon, this was just another great Rugrats’ Adventure! The animation was consistent with what one expects while watching Rugrats, with the exception of the background scenery of Paris which was quite well done. Angelica is still a snotty brat and we see her become once more remorseful of her evil actions; Chuckie finds he *can* be brave; Tommy still takes the lead; Phil and Lil are still obsessed with gross objects and bugs; Dill is becoming quite the cutie; and with the addition of Kimi to the Rugrats gang, I can’t wait to see where the adventures go! This was a very heart-warming story and so great to see into the past of Chaz Finster and see him find “true love” (although in such a short time!). Susan Serandon played a great character in “Coco”, which a great flair for portraying such an evil woman easily likened to Cruella DeVil and Madame Medussa! I highly recommend this for kids of all ages. There are fun scenes, great songs, many laughable parts, and overall a great way to spend time with your kids. My Ratings: [Excellent / 4]

My kids and I really enjoyed the movie, however, the kids didn’t understand why the amusement park head was contriving to marry Chuckie’s dad. Other than that, they enjoyed the fast pace of the movie. One warning-If you don’t like the cartoon show, don’t go to this movie. My Ratings: [4/4½]

This was a great movie not only for the kids but the adults as well. You don’t have to watch the show in order to follow the movie. It started out a bit sad, but it proved in the end that happiness is not in money or things, but in love. My children 7 and 3 loved it, as did their father and I. My Ratings: [5/5]

This was a great movie about the Rugrats and how they get Chuckie a new mommy! I really enjoyed it! Only once did I think I heard a bad word. Wonderful move overall! My Ratings: [5/5]

Very enjoyable movie for our family. I got a message that I was not expecting from a cartoon. I think my boys realized that all kids don’t have both Mom and Dad. It gave me an opportunity to talk to them about how lucky I feel to be with them everyday. My husband will like this movie too. Very nice—very nice. My Ratings: [4½/4]

My daughter and I enjoyed this movie. The mild potty humor (poo-poo jokes, flatulence jokes) may offend some. However, the movie contains no bad language, sexual situations, children in serious danger, or other adult situations that I can recall. There are no explicitly pro-Christian statements, but many positive values (greed is bad, deceit is bad, people of all kinds can get along) are presented. I would suggest a guideline: if the rhyme “I saw Paris, I saw France, I saw someone’s underpants” offends you, do not see this movie. Otherwise, I recommend this as a film that both you and your children will enjoy. My Ratings: [NOTHING Offensive / 4]
