User Reviews

Some people are a bit harsh on this film
9 December 2003 | by TheNorthernMonkeeSee all my reviews

There's not too much that can really be said about "Jimmy Neutron" as far as films go. A previous reviewer described it as something to watch on a rainy Sunday afternoon and that sounds like an adequate description. There are a few reviews on this website of the film though which feel a bit harsh. Ultimately, theres no denying that "Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius" is a kids film, that's what it was meant to be, that's what it is. That's not a bad thing though. Whilst it may not have the adult humour of other animations (mainly the greatest animation of them all, "Shrek"), it does still have the occasional funny joke that will make people of all ages laugh. Whilst the plot is a bit wafer thin and the animation a bit simplistic at times, I'd like to see most of the reviewers on this website try and do better. Ultimately, I can understand that to some people, this film may not be their cup of tea, and for a long time I avoided trying to watch it. Once you sit down and give it the time of day though, you'll be pleasantly surprised. Not the best animation of the last few years, but definately worth a viewing.
