Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius (2001)


An eight year-old boy genius and his friends must rescue their parents after the adults are abducted by aliens. (IMDb)
The late 90s pop soundtrack is a little lame, and the charmingly ridiculous plot (the wild “no parents!” party is an early highlight) does occasionally push the limits (see Jimmy converting numerous amusement park rides into spaceships within what seems like 15 minutes) but the lively one-liner humour stemming from the hilariously voiced oddball characters (from slow sidekicks Sheen and Carl to oblivious Mr. Neutron and the wacky alien villains) never lets up and keeps the film a fun ride.
7/10 (Good)
