The gang are all present and correct, including newcomer Kimi (who oddly does not have much to do). Twins Phil and Lil take gross-out humour to a whole new level and evil cousin Angelica commits her worst atrocity yet, but really this is Chuckie's film. Everyone's favourite scaredy cat takes the viewer from moments of heartbreaking sadness (I genuinely cried at one point!) to madcap sequences like the must-be-seen-to-be-believed 'Chuckie Chan (Martial Arts Expert of Reptarland)' and everywhere in-between.
Anarchic and endearing in equal measures, 'Rugrats in Paris' also wisely aims its gags across the age spectrum. After all, any cartoon that opens with a lengthy parody of 'The Godfather' can't just be for kids, can it?
All the Rugrats - and their equally funny parents - are there, with courageous Tommy, super-brat Angelica, the mud slinging twins Phil & Lil, and nervous wreck Chucky. So begins a tale so saccharine that it's actually likeable, with love in store for one of the lucky ensemble.
Lending their voice talents here are Tim Curry and Susan Sarandon (Cocoa LaBouche) among others, and they do splendid jobs. Sarandon in particular turns LaBouche into a true 'hiss, boo!' villainness.
Obviously this being Rugrats there is that quirky Nickleodeon humour present, and the songs are great, especially 'It's An Ooey Gooey World'. There are genuinely touching moments in the film, most notably Chucky's search for a new mum. Parodies of more adult films are present, and a couple of new characters - Kimi and Kira - are first introduced here. Better than the Rugrats first outing by a colossal margin, this is a film to be enjoyed by both children and parents alike.
