view all

Huge-brained and grease-haired Jimmy Neutron is a retro geek hero for the new millennium in this bright and flashy computer animated feature. The child-inventor is young enough to think a sugar rush is the ultimate taboo but smart enough to have created a toaster-satellite that makes contact with an alien race. When said alien race respond by stealing all the parents in Retroville, Jimmy and his band of nerds endeavor to rescue them. Though mildly targeted at adults, it prefers gas gags to pop culture reference; even the new-wave songs are covered by kiddie bands. Frenetic pacing and onslaught of images may tire older (than teenage) viewers, although the animation is pleasant enough and there are some inventive lines that will go over the young-uns' heads. Short and Stewart are amusing as a pair of egg-shaped space invaders.

Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius
Star_onStar_onStar_onStar_on 4.0 4.0

Jimmy Neutron, his friend Carl Wheezer and a robotic dog named Goddard are in a rocket trying to launch a communications satellite with aliens to tell them that he couldn't understand their message because it was garbled in the ionosphere. Meanwhile, an airforce base picks up their signals from their radar and thinks that they are UFO's. They are surprised to find out that it is 2 boys and a robotic dog. Jimmy isn't like most kids. He is really smart and is always inventing things. One invention is a bubble transportation system made out of special bubble gum. This 2001 movie is a great film and is good for kids to watch.
