Your favorite animated toddlers from Nickelodeon’s hit show go on an international adventure in their second feature-length film.
When the Reptar robot that Stu Pickles (Jack Riley) is building for a show at EuroReptarland isn’t working, theme park head Coco LaBouche (Susan Sarandon) demands he come right away to fix it. He brings the whole crew, including Chuckie (Christine Cavanaugh) and Chas (Michael Bell) who both believe it’s time for a new mom/wife.
This movie great for the whole family. Full of loveable characters plus some fun additions both on the nice and villainous side, their adventures are fun and full of color. And though the emotional depth might go over the heads of children, the emptiness that both Chuckie and Chas have of not having a mom/wife is very real and treated beautifully.
Final say: Rugrats at their best. ★★★★☆
