Rugrats in Paris: The Movie
Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon
Film Review by: Lynn Barker
Chuckie is sad because he needs a mother. His widowed
dad, Chas has started dating again but, so far, no luck.
When electronics whiz, Stu Pickles, is called to Paris
to repair a huge mechanical dinosaur at EuroReptarland,
Chuckie, his dad and the whole gang is invited along.
When Tommy, Angelica, Phil, Lil, Baby Dil, Didi and
the whole gang arrive at Reptarland, Coco La Bouche,
(pronounced Boosh) the selfish manager of the park,
decides she'll marry Chas in order to have the "family"
that she needs to get promoted. Coco hates kids and
it's her pretty and friendly assistant Kira Watanabe
(Wah-tah-nah-bae) who is the perfect match for Chas
and the right new mommie for Chuckie.
With self-centered Angelica's help, Coco almost marries
Chas but once Angelica sees how unhappy the marriage
will make Chuckie and Chas, she tells the gang the truth
and they are off to stop the wedding at Notre Dame Cathedral!
Will they make it? Will Chas and Chuckie get the right
new wife and mom? See the film to find out!
This movie is based on the very popular "Rugrats" t.v.
series that looks at our world through the eyes of babies
and kids. The characters are very endearing to young
kids but this film has something for pre-teens, teens
and the whole family! There are some more adult "in-jokes"
(like Angelica taking her turn in a shadowed room pretending
to be "The Godfather" passing out favors at his daughter's
wedding!) and the action/chase sequences through the
theme park are beautifully drawn and great fun to watch.
There is also the romance angle as we watch Chas fall
for the wrong woman and root for a relationship with
It's fun hearing the voices of stars Susan Sarandon
and John Lithgow and the music is lively. In a sub-plot
focusing on the family dog, we get to hear the upbeat
hit "Who Let The Dogs Out?". The official website is
a riot. You can download "digibaby" rugrats for your
desktop. Lots of laughs and adventure for all ages!
