"This dvd has been ruined by being in a full-screen format. Full Screen crops the theatrical picture to 4:3 ratio which is the shape of a standard (non-widescreen) TV screen. There is no letterboxing, but up to a third of the original picture is lost. WIDESCREEN preserves the original theatrical picture ratio of the film which will appear in "letterboxed" format on a normal TV screen. If anyone has an all-region dvd player, I recomend going to Amazon UK and ordering the region 2 PAL Dvd version. It Is in widescreen"
Powerpuff Girls Rock!

"I am forty-years old and have been a PpG fan since day one back in November of 1998. I LOVE THE PPG MOVIE! Some people do not understand that this is the prequel to the TV series, so of course it will not have all the villains in the movie. Craig McCracken wanted to balance out the film where fans of the show, and people who have never seen the PpG, can enjoy it. The movie is just like the TV series.
I am happy to see that Craig did not make any improvements to the characters as other films do that go from TV to the big screen. He kept the characters the same as they are on the show. The animation is a little better.
The movie makes references to such films "Planet of the Apes," "Conquest of the Planet of the Apes," "The Wizard OF Oz," and "King Kong."
My favorite scene is where the girls are playing tag in Townsville. The girls are having a ball playing tag around Townsville. They do not realize how rough they are playing and in the process, they are destroying the town.
This film makes you laugh while other animated shows take themselves too seriously. The PpG reminds me of the Cartoons I used to watch when I was a kid. Cartoons like Atom Ant, The Beatles Cartoons, Spider-Man, Top Cat, the Impossibles, and the campy 1966 Batman TV series.
It is not only the animation that makes the movie great; it is also the talents of the voiceover actors that bring the characters to life. E.G. Daily, Tara Strong, Cathy Cavadini, and the rest of the cast make these characters laughable, loveable, and believable. Everyone has done an excellent job on this movie.
I hope Cartoon Network and Warner Brothers decide not to get rid of the cast of this fine and unique series. The show will lose many fans if CN and WB do decide to get a new cast. The cast was almost replaced before the voices were recorded for the movie. CN and WB did not want to pay the cast all the money that the cast were supposed to get for the TV series, the movie, and the PpG merchandise. I am happy to hear that things worked out for the film.
I was not disappointed with the PpG movie. I love the show more now after seeing the movie. I plan to see it again. I cannot wait of this movie on DVD.
If you only see on animated movie this year, see the Powerpuff Girls Movie. If you are not a fan or have never seen the PPG, you will be come a fan."

"Last summer's _Powerpuff Girls Movie_ was, hands down, the most interesting animated feature in years. In terms of graphic design, it's the film UPA might have made, if it had had the chance.Sadly, it was relegated to kid-flick purgatory and ignored by the public, which may explain why Warner Bros. has botched its DVD release. Although the film's trailer is presented in widescreen, the film itself is not available in its original 1.85:1 aspect ratio. Image cropping is noticeable, especially during split-screen sequences.A nice round-up of extras doesn't help much under these circumstances. Still, because I enjoyed the film so much in theaters, and because I think the animation is really good, I promise to rewrite this review and raise my rating once Warner Bros. releases it in widescreen.For now, shame on Warner Bros.Warning to parents: This film is extremely violent, and many of the visuals could be deeply disturbing. As with the television series, the _PPG Movie_ is not for children."
WB ruined this dvd

"WB needs to rerelease this dvd in widscreen. It is not fair that The UK has it in widescreen and we don't."

"I'm 47 years old, and it takes a LOT for a cartoon to impress me. I became hopelessly addicted to the Powerpuff Girls in 1995, and this movie just renews my love of the franchise. The movie was everything I expected and much more from Craig McCracken and the entire PpG staff that put this wonderful movie together. If this movie doesn't become a cult anime classic, I'll eat my entire PpG comic book collection!This is indeed the best cartoon movie I have seen in years."
