Day: January 10th, Movie:10
I went to HBO Max tonight for the next film in the Genre-ary Sci-Fi DailyView. It was Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius. I had never watched an episode of the TV show, so I had no expectations coming in to Jimmy Neutron. Apparently, the TV series was the sequel to the film, which had received an Oscar nomination among
According to IMDB, “Jimmy Neutron is a boy genius and way ahead of his friends, but when it comes to being cool, he’s a little behind. All until one day when his parents, and parents all over Earth are kidnapped by aliens, it’s up to him to lead all the children of the world to rescue their parents.”
This movie was fun and silly. It had a good humor to it and the computer generated animation was decent. I was surprised when I heard Martin Short’s voice as one of the alien creatures.
Other voices in the film included Debi Derryberry, Patrick Stuart, Carolyn Lawrence, Rob Paulson, Frank Welker, Bob Goen, Mary Hart, Megan Cavanagh, Mark DeCarlo, Jeffrey Garcia, Crystal Scales, David L. Lander, Jim Cummings, Billy West, Kimberly Brooks, Candi Milo, and Dee Bradley Baker.
The tone of the movie was definitely for a younger audience, but I still found this entertaining. There was some clever writing and the story was simple but well done.
