Jimmy Neutron is a boy genius and way ahead of his friends, but when it comes to being cool, he's a little behind. All until one day when his parents, and parents all over Earth are kidnapped by aliens, it's up to him to lead all the children of the world to rescue their parents.


3.5 stars If you've seen the previews, you have a pretty good idea of how the plot for this animated film works. The main character is a boy named Jimmy Neutron (his full name is James Isaac Neutron, but he is called Jimmy Nerdtron on more than one occasion) who is way smarter than any of his schoolmates or his parents. He has a robotic dog named Goddard and brings a shrink ray to school for "show and tell." And part way through the film all of the parents are abducted by aliens. The preview looked entertaining, but the worry was that the rest of the film wouldn't hold up or the whole premise would get old. If this hadn't gotten nominated for a best animated feature film Oscar, I probably wouldn't have seeked out one of the last places it was playing on a Friday afternoon (in a theater with two other people, one of whom was my wife). The pleasant surprise was that it was great fun from beginning to end, and the soundtrack wasn't bad either (e.g., "We Got the Beat" by The Go-Go's). It isn't great cinema, but it's a great guilty pleasure.
