Jimmy Neutron is a precocious little boy who spends all his free time coming up with radically nifty inventions that make his life super sweet.  His exasperated parents, however, are tired of cleaning up after his messy rocket launches. When Mom and Dad are kidnapped by aliens, along with all the other grownups in their town, Jimmy’s friends look to him to help get them back. The writing in this Nickoleodon film never gets near the brilliant level of Pixar or Disney classics, but it has a healthy sense of fun and kids will surely love it. Grownups will most likely spend their time marveling at all the beautiful colours in the excellent, bubble-shaped animation and the very creative uses of imagery (my favourite being the amusement park rides travelling through space). A good, clean, fun flick for the whole family to enjoy.

Academy Award Nomination:  Best Animated Feature
