Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius Opens to Positive Reviews

(by Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius opened in theaters today to widely positive reviews. The animated movie by Paramount Pictures, Nickelodeon and DNA Productions is playing in 3,139 theaters. Here are select review quotes from newspaper critics:

Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times - "...Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius is a Nickelodeon production, frankly aimed at grade-schoolers. It doesn't have the little in-jokes that make Shrek and Monsters, Inc. fun for grown-ups. But adults who appreciate the art of animation may enjoy the look of the picture, which is a kind downsized Toy Story, with a lot of originality in the visual ideas..."

Claudia Puig of USA Today - "...Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius is bound to make parents happy if only because of its message: 'Listen to your parents. They know what's good for you.' And it should please kids because, for most of the animated feature, Jimmy and his pals don't heed that advice, have loads of fun and get into all manner of intergalactic mayhem..."

Paul Tatara of CNN - "...Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius is the most delightfully original children's film of 2001. Fasten your seatbelts for further installments of a zooming, bumpy ride."

Dan Via of the Washington Post - "Frenetic and uninvolving, the latest offering from the Nickelodeon uber-brand follows whiz-kid Neutron, his robotic dog and his demographically comprehensive classmates on an intergalactic mission to rescue their parents, kidnapped by a race of gelatinous space creepies... This boy genus should be grounded."
