About this movie

JIMMY NEUTRON: Boy Genius, is trying to make contact with an alien civilization. Unbeknownst to him, a satellite he launches (okay, it's the kitchen toaster, but it works!) is picked up by an alien species. In the dark of night the aliens fly their war ships-looking like a fleet of rubber chickens to earth and abduct all the parents in Jimmy's hometown of Retroville. So it's up to Jimmy to create a fleet of space ships from the rides at the town's new amusement park (hey, he's a genius, remember?) and launch them into orbit in a bid to rescue the abducted parents of Retroville. But Jimmy better hurry! Because the aliens are preparing to use the parents as human sacrifices! With his robotic dog, Goddard, and his best friend, Carl, by his side, Jimmy and the rest of the kids in Retroville take to the skies on a trip that's sure to be a blast! Featuring the voice talents of Patrick Stewart and Martin Short as the evil King Goobot and his sidekick Ooblar.

This was my inspiration for life as a kid. Not to mention the movie I watched so much I think I broke the VHS... I feel old now. Anyway, it has great humor for a kids movie. Character's that are funny to kids without being annoying to adults--and they're pretty funny for adults too. A couple of explosions. And, best of all it has SCIENCE! Well, science adapted for the world of a kids movie. But that's more than most movies nowadays. Also it has Patrick Stewart. So, bonus points there. If you are looking for a fun kids movie that's more than just "believe in yourself and you will always win," or just loud entertainment, but something where the characters actually have to think about how to deal with a problem. And it makes science look fun (which it is anyway, as complicated as it can be) then this is the movie for you. Watch it and then watch the TV series too if you liked the movie. Also, it's most likely cheaper to get the DVD on Amazon than this digital copy. So check there first.
