RUGRATS GO WILD (Theatrical Release USA 2003)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Stars ìììì

Rugrats Go Wild—
great animated feature—mixes Nickelodeon’s Rugrats with The Wild Thornberrys television series for good family film entertainment. The movie provides a sensational character combination when it pairs Angelica Pickles (voice of Cheryl Chase) with Debbie Thornberry (voice of Danielle Harris) in some hilarious scenes of two divas with the same mind set: ‘out for themselves’ and ‘every one serves me’ personalities. The rest of the cast does not disappoint in entertainment value.

The Pickles family wants to go on vacation, so they round up everyone in their expanded family to take a ‘cruise’. But Stuart ‘Stu’ Pickles (voice of Jack Riley) rents a used, severely dilapidated fishing boat, without anyone’s permission, and the ‘luxury’ cruise sets sail with an extremely disgruntled crew. A big wave hits the boat. It capsizes and the family escapes to an island by means of a lifeboat. Meanwhile the Thornberrys have a camp on the other side of the island in preparation for looking for the elusive clouded leopard. The story is on as the Pickles try to solve their dilemma. Fun and frolic as the babies head into the jungle, the adults argue, and the two families collide.
