Nickelodeon's hero with the football-shaped head leaps onto the big screen in this delightfully entertaining feature film adventure for the whole family!
A heartless industrialist has an evil plan: to level Arnold's neighborhood and build a huge shopping mall. With time running out, someone needs to save the day. And that someone is Arnold. With Helga, his pigtailed nemesis who secretly loves him, and Gerald, his cool best friend, Arnold takes a stand to prove the real meaning of progress - finding new joys in the old neighborhood he calls "home."
Featuring the voice talents of Jennifer Jason Leigh, Paul Sorvino and Christopher Lloyd, Hey Arnold! The Movie is " . . . a treat for all ages!" (Mike Sargent, WBAI-FM).

Apparently, 'Hey Arnold: The Movie' wasn't intended to be released in theaters at all. Originally titled 'Arnold Saves the Neighborhood', it was going to be a "made-for-TV" movie. Nick originally had planned to make 'Hey Arnold: The Jungle Movie' as the theatrical release, but converted 'Arnold Saves the Neighborhood' into this film when production of the other film was slow.
Anyway, this movies plot is about a greedy corporation called 'FTI', who want to tear down Arnolds Neighborhood so they can build a futuristic mall. Meanwhile, Arnold and Gerald are busy looking for a document which will prove their homes are historical landmarks and prevent the bad guys from taking over.
The story is painfully bland. And despite a couple of good gags ("Block Power" made me laugh), this movie just isn't worth your time. Even if you're a nostalgic 90's person like me. Also, this movie flopped big-time when it was released and was the cause of this TV series getting taken off the air only 2 years later. 'The Jungle Movie' was also taken out of production, which was a shame.
It's pretty ironic that this movies plot demonized greed and avarice, yet it was those very qualities which gave this movie a hasty release, resulting in the shows demise. I give 'Hey Arnold: The Movie' a three out of ten rating.
It follows the TV show, and acts like the show did, although there are admittedly some revelations that kind of move the story forward, though that felt like kind of a tease since there wasn't any more shows or movies that followed this one.
Helga is still Helga and still loves Arnold, and Arnold still needs to save the world and/or help out someone else. Only this time, there is actually a pressing event that makes it so that his attitude and actions are definitely needed when a corporate man wants to buy out the entire town.
Very sweet, funny, and cool movie.
