An elementary school student has to save his parents from evil space aliens with the help of his classmates (who all had their parents kidnapped as well) in this fun and overall enjoyable animated feature from the Nickelodeon Studios. "Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius" was a surprise Best Animated Feature nominee in 2001 (the category's first year). It seemed to be the oddball production in a group which included "Shrek" and "Monsters, Inc." (there were only three films nominated in that category that year). Overall though "Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius" is on par with "Shrek" (one of the more over-rated films of the past few years) and stands tall with the superior "Monsters, Inc.". Admittedly the movie is excellent for children, but only fair for hardened adults. It lacks the charm for wide audiences that most other animated features have these days. Still, "Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius" serves its purpose to the paramount and continues to be a money-maker for Nickelodeon (there is a regular series airing now on that network). First-rate animation (that has that striking aquarium-style appeal to it) and good voice characterizations (Martin Short and Patrick Stewart in particular as the comical aliens) make the movie one of the better films of 2001. 4 stars out of 5.
