    Claudia Puig USA Today

    After "Monsters, Inc.," this movie may be a bit of a letdown, but there are some scenes that will delight elementary-school-age children and older preschoolers -- notably the gross-out moments. show more

    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    A thoroughly entertaining animated comedy that's sweet enough for the youngest moviegoers, and smart enough for the most cynical chaperone. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    It doesn't have the little in-jokes that make "Shrek" and "Monsters, Inc." fun for grown-ups. But adults who appreciate the art of animation may enjoy the look of the picture. show more

    Loren King Boston Globe

    Mixes ''Jetsons''-style futuristic hijinks with a reliable story of a boy inadvertently whisked ''over the rainbow'' to another galaxy where his mettle is tested. show more

    Lou Lumenick New York Post

    Aimed squarely at the under-6 crowd, is basically the pilot for a Nickelodeon series with an already heavily merchandised character. show more

    A misstep or two aside, you don't have to belong to Mensa to know kids will enjoy it. show more

    Film Threat

    The film is short on plot, and any form of character development, but I am sure the target audience of children will find plenty to enjoy even though most adults may find it a bit boring. All in all, Jimmy Neutron is a nice holiday diversion for the family. show more
