    The movie feels like a long-form version of the popular Nickelodeon cartoon series on which it's based, which probably won't bother Arnold fans. show more

    If your kids are old enough to safely see the movie by themselves, drop 'em off and pick 'em up after. You don't need to see this one. show more

    Could easily be just another episode of "Hey Arnold!" the TV show. Except that it's three times as long, and not half as much fun. show more

    This was a great film based on the series! It might loose a star due to weird or odd things that could be written out in a heartbeat...but otherwise...great job Tuck!
