After reading the previous reviews I didn't feel desperate to watch this terrific movie. Buy this movie! I am 32 years old and I don't have kids. But, I laughed-out-loud all through this movie. Jimmy's best friend (the guinea pig for all of Jimmy's dangerous experiments) deserves an Oscar for best supporting actor in a comedy! Now that's a friend! If you can't tell already - Jimmy is really smart and creates cool gadgets. Oh and Jimmy has built his very own gadget workshop (accessed via a secret elevator entrance in the back yard) under his house. At no time did this movie seem slow. You (or maybe your kids) will barely have time to recover from one laugh to the next or between exciting action scenes. There is a very cool and super-loyal robot dog too! This movie can help ANYONE forget their problems and escape into Jimmy's world!(that is saying a lot!) I am crossing my fingers for many sequels. If the creative geniuses who made this movie are perhaps reading - Job Well Done!

Many filmmakers try to make kids movies as entertaining for the parents as for the kids. Some movies get that just right, like Spy Kids; some movies go a little too far, as Monsters, Inc did in a couple of the scary moments, or Harry Potter did pretty much throughout.
Jimmy Neutron, in contrast, is focused squarely at the kids, and hits its target unerringly. My daughter was completely engaged from beginning to end. Even the obligatory scary incarceration scenes were toned to just the right shade; she turned to me and confidently announced that "the kids are going to win anyway, you know, daddy." I was quite relieved.
This is not to say I didn't enjoy the movie. It's light and entertaining, and some of the visual humor was quite delightful. The plot is uncomplicated, as the message. There is some nuance in the interaction between the characters, but even this is painted in primary colors.
As we left the theatre, my daughter was already asking to go back and see it again. That's a pretty strong endorsement.

As far as state-of-the-art computer animation has taken us, "Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius" isn't first rate, but who said it needed to be, anyway? Here is a movie whose animation reminds us that capturing reality through technology isn't always appealing; for me, this delightful children's movie is a true triumph of comedy and spirited fun, and will no doubt please children as well as adults.
The story is based on the Nickelodeon cartoon featuring Jimmy Neutron, a highly intelligent elementary school student whose knowledge of all things scientific wows his father and displeases his mother ("How many times have we told you not to play with rockets?"). He is teased at school for his height and his creativeness, which sometimes carries mixed results, though none of it seems to bother him. His inventive nature drives him to do things like creating a girl-eating plant, burp soda, and launching a satellite made from a household toaster into space.
When phlegm-like space aliens retrieve the satellite and discover Earth's coordinates, they descend on Jimmy's town and kidnap all adults as a meal for their ruler, a cross between a chicken and Godzilla. At this point, it's up to Jimmy to save the day.
This is a very simple yet entertaining story, devoid of the in-jokes and satirical whimsy of "Shrek," or the slightly more realistic appearance of Disney's "Toy Story" movies, yet it still manages to please with its childlike innocence and its wonderful humor. Jimmy's creative mind provides for some very wacky shenanigans, including a completely robotic dog named Goddard who is Jimmy's friend for life.

QUALITY: It's no Pixar so Nick didn't go there but the plastic animation of this really cute movie adds to its totally fantastic grounding. Physics, or reality for that matter, has no place here but bends to the will of the child's imagination.
MORALS: Size doesn't matter, it's all relative and parents usually know what's best, even if they don't seem to know why.
HITS: There's a little sneaking around and adults are shown in a poor light as not altogether coherent (or with-it), especially the teacher and Jimmy's Dad. This could have been because kids often see adults this way but should not have been perpetuated.
PERKS: I loved Patrick Stewart's voice as the villain, just enough Star Trek with a twist of barbaric megalomania.

"Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius" (2001)
It is rare that an animated children's film comes along and reminds us exactly how much fun it was to be a kid. Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius is one of those movies that makes you want to go back to those days and play with your gadgets and have fun. Instead of doing that you could just watch this splendid film. It's about as suitable for kids as it is for adults, and I'm sure even though the movie is unrealistic, everyone will view Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius as it was meant to be viewed - a fun-filled, imaginative and faithful adaptation to the TV show I have not yet seen.
The movie's plot is fairly simple - some kids' parents are kidnapped by aliens so its up to the children to save the day - but the wizardry is not in the plot. The real fantastical thing about the movie is the fact that Jimmy Neutron is a boy-genius and this offers for some terrific belly laughs. The fact that this young child can invent things that children and even some adults can only dream about is brilliant and it brings the movie vividly to life. Jimmy can invent edible bubble-gum which blows up to be a type of transport, burp soda, a mechanical dog named Goddard, a plant which is robotically engineered to eat girls, and many other things. Neutron's inventions are what save the day in the end and they are memorably creative and you'll wish you had some of the things that Jimmy could invent.
The film's humour is absolutely stunning. You've got the chance to see a giant octopus and rollercoaster ride in space, see Channel 7 news run by children and the characters themselves bring many smiles and laughs to the movie.
