Amusing for fans with an extra fun for fans of "The Wild Thornberrys".
25 September 2005 | by See all my reviews

The Rugrats and family become stranded on an island after Stu (Voiced by Jack Riley) promises his family and friends a wonderful vacation but instant he rented an old boat ship instead going on a cruise ship. Tommy (Voiced by Elizabeth Daily), Chuckie (Voiced by Nancy Cartwright), Phil & Lil (Voiced both by Kath Soucie), Susie (Voiced by Cree Summer) and Dil (Voiced by Tara Strong) wander off to the jungle. Spike (Voiced by Bruce Willis) loses his sense of small due to sneezing.

Angelica (Voiced by Cheryl Chase) meets an equally but older bratty teen by the name of Debbie Thornberry (Voiced by Danielle Harris). When a doted leopard named Siri (Voiced by Chrissie Hynde) goes after the babies. But an intelligent little girl by the name of Eliza Thornberry (Voiced by Lacey Chabert), who can talk to the animals will try to find the babies before Siri does and adventurer Nigel Thornberry (Voiced by Tim Curry) becomes amnesic after finding the babies and the situation doesn't go well for the Pickles, The Finster's, Thornberry's and De Ville's family.

Directed by John Eng and Edmund Fong made an amusing family animated film that is an improvement (For some fans) over the second "Rugrats" film. This is the last film for the "Rugrats" teamed with the equally popular "The Wild Thornberrys" T.V. Series. The film's chief novelty is Willis providing the voice of Spike the Dog, who normally doesn't talk. This film is basically hybrid of the two popular animated T.V. Series. This film wasn't a big hit at the Box Office like the previous two "Rugrats" films. Still, it is worth a look for fans of these two televisions series mixed into one movie. Digital Widescreen. (*** ½/*****).
