Rugrats in Paris: The Movie | 2000 | G | - 1.2.1

The Rugrats and their families travel to Paris, France, so that Tommy's dad can repair a Reptar robot's mechanical troubles. Also Chuckie's widowed dad starts dating again and Chuckie hopes that he will get a new mom. With the voices of Joe Alaskey, Christine Cavanaugh, Melanie Chartoff, Cheryl Chase, Elizabeth Daily, John Lithgow, Debbie Reynolds, Jack Riley, Susan Sarandon and Kath Soucie. [1:17]

SEX/NUDITY 1 - Some flirting. A woman pretends to love Chuckie and his dad in order to trick his dad into marrying her. Sumo wrestlers are shown in their thongs, exposing very large backsides; they break into a karaoke song and dance routine. A woman's dress is torn and exposes her panties and stockings from the back. A baby's diaper falls down around his ankles showing his bottom briefly.

VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - The babies are threatened by a mean and menacing woman and her sidekick. At one point they are kidnapped and put in a dark warehouse with a huge Reptar robot. A vase nearly hits a baby on the head. A woman tosses a young woman out of a car and onto the street. The babies steal a huge Reptar robot, march through town in it, while it is carrying two babies in its hands. At the same time it is being chased by a robotic slug. Both robots cause lots of damage crushing buildings and causing cars to crash. The Reptar robot with the babies inside dangles from the side of the Eiffel tower. A baby flies through the air and nearly falls off the tower. The Reptar robot blows fire on a stage village a couple of times and once its head blows off and flies across the stage (crushing things along the way); it bounces up to the theater balcony and nearly crushes a woman. Two babies almost fall into a luggage chute. A baby is on top of an out-of-control food cart in a plane. Food is thrown around and the baby is dumped on top of another baby. A dog runs loose through a hotel knocking people and things around. The babies run around alone for a while, nearly getting hurt several times -- they are being chased by Ninjas; there's no Ninja fighting. A dragon doorknob snarls and its eyes glow. A man threatens to hit a dog with a broom. A dream sequence shows some scary looking dragon and monster-like figures chasing and fighting with a baby. A baby eats a worm. Angelica is threatened by a woman and held by the collar of her dress. A woman and a baby struggle over a teddy bear. There's no gore, but lots of yucky baby goo and talk of gross stuff such as picking noses, passing gas, burping, babies with stinky diapers. And a baby wets his pants and a dog urinates on the foot of the Eiffel tower. A baby drools a lot and spits up on a woman after grabbing at her lips. The babies take a ride through Ooey Gooey World which is full of green bubbly goo. Two of the babies stuff their diapers with the goo making way for a later green goo gas bubble joke. A huge cake fight leaves everyone covered in dripping frosting.

LANGUAGE 1 - Some baby-talk scatological terms. Some namecalling and insults, most of which are baby to baby, but some are delivered by adults also.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Love, dating, losing and longing for one's mother, being mean, having ulterior motives, being brave, kidnapping.

MESSAGE - Love can be found when and where you least expect it.

(Note: A major theme in this story is the fact that Chuckie's mother has died and that he's motherless. It is handled delicately but there are several emotional scenes. And this may be a subject that some children may find distressing.)

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
