Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This little charmer both celebrates and kids the corny conventions of family sitcoms."
‑ Rita Kempley, Washington Post
"Stylish 3-D computer animation, good characters."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"The characters are comical and dynamic -- especially Jimmy, Carl and Sheen -- and the outer space scenes are no less than stellar."
‑ Tyler Hanley, Palo Alto Weekly
"The story is slow in parts but as this is a Nickelodeon film, it is filled with all sorts of fun moments that children are sure to love."
‑ Gareth J. Von Kallenbach, Film Threat
"One of those movies that you watch when you've got nothing better to do, munching jelly babies and smiling at the exuberance on the screen"
‑ Ian Waldron-Mantgani, UK Critic
"Jimmy Neutron just doesn't have enough power to sustain itself to feature length, though children -- the movie's real audience -- may be so dazzled by the spectacle of Jimmy flying through space with his robot dog that they won't notice."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"Like a rollicking adventure from the fevered boyhood imagination of Calvin from Calvin and Hobbes: the gooey aliens, the boy-genius gadgetry. Except with Jimmy it's real."
‑ Steven D. Greydanus, Decent Films Guide
"After seeing this don't be surprised if your toaster goes missing and Jimmy becomes a fixture on big and small screens for years to come."
‑ Harry Guerin, RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
"Apesar da trama engraçadinha, Jimmy Neutron falha em dois aspectos importantes: em seu roteiro e na qualidade de sua animação."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"As frothily entertaining as this caper is, it's unlikely to prove as popular with grown-ups as Shrek and the Toy Story movies."
‑ Neil Smith, BBC.com
"[W]hen they went into the outerspace adventure it just got so silly and it didn't really go anywhere and it just kind of lay dead there."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"...[an] engaging and entertaining animated feature."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"...A serviceable piece of juvenile entertainment with high production values and low expectations."
‑ John R. McEwen, Film Quips Online
"Una cinta para los pequeñines pero también disfrutable por toda la familia"
‑ Luis Martinez, Cinenganos
"It has some quality computer-generated graphics, while the story and artwork are imaginative."
‑ Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
