Commentary:


I hate to kill a cartoon with overpraise, but the year 2000 saw movies with far greater intentions that were far less satisfying than Rugrats in Paris. It's always a treat when someone remembers that adults enjoy a good family film as much as their kids do.

At first, the story seems only an excuse to drag the famous TV kiddies to France. The premise is that baby Tommy's father Stu is called to Paris to repair his working model of Reptar, the Rugrats' favorite Godzillian monster. Stu and his partner Chas of course bring their families along, and widowed Chas falls under the spell of Coco LaBouche (voiced by Susan Sarandon), a backstabbing exec who must marry in order to impress her family-oriented boss.

But like all great cartoons, the plot is license for the animators to sneak in a lot of little goodies along the way. Besides the movie's opening parody of The Godfather (a bit of a stretch, but still funny), there are numerous digs at theme parks in general and, in particular, Disney (Rugrats' only box-office competitor in feature cartoons). The movie also scores points for the speed in which they snapped up Baha Men's lively tune "Who Let the Dogs Out?" for movie use.

And in the same manner as last year's Toy Story 2, the movie transcends its cash-cow origins and turns out to have a heart. The subplot about Chas' son Chuckie longing for a mother seems a bit of a whine at first, but by movie's end it's surprisingly engrossing. As a result, the cartoon even pulls off that oldest of movie cliches: The Rush to the Church to End the Villain's Wedding.

Obviously, the first Rugrats movie's grosses caught someone's attention in Hollywood. The sequel's guest cast includes an A-list of celebrity voices, including Sarandon, Debbie Reynolds, and John Lithgow, all of whom are quite splendid.

The movie's only fault is a bit too much reliance on wee-wee and poo-poo jokes. (This is unquestionably the first G-rated movie to feature a gag about a bidet.) But this is a minor debit. In a year when most family films are either insufferably saccharine or based on violent characters, this movie sent its preview audience out singing and clapping along to the Baha Men over the closing credits. I thought that was a good sign.
