My 2 1/2 yr. old grandson (whom I got this for) and I loved this movie. It was a change of scenery for the rugrats being at sea and then thinking they were on an uncharted island. The kids finding out that Tommy's hero, an animal hunter who has a tv show introducing and telling all about the different animals, is such a fluke but so funny. Finding out that he hauls his whole family around with him to these remote places but still neglects them is par for the course. His kids are hilarious, a wild boy, a daughter who talks to animals and understands when they talk back, and an older daughter that even Angelica has to look up to. And Bruce Willis as Spike, the dog, was so great.
It seems like everytime we watch it I notice something different. So funny - especially when all the parents think they have found a way to survive until they meet the animalist and his wife. They were all so relieved to have found someone to rescue them.

"When the vacationing Rugrats and their parents get stranded on a deserted island, Tommy Pickles knows there's only one man who can help them: Nigel Thornberry! Except a bonk on the head has made Nigel suddenly seem more like a 3-year-old than a man. Luckily, the babies have Eliza on their side, and with her ability to communicate with animals, she can even talk to Spike! Will the Rugrats ever make it back to their own back yard? Will Nigel the toddler turn back into a documentary-making dad? Will Spike sound an awful lot like Bruce Willis?. bottom line: good movie to take your kids too"

"There's a lot of action in this movie. I like when Spike talks...it was really funny! I like that Debbie and Angelica meet each other, because they're alike...they're both mean and bossy. It was nice to see Angelica get bossed around for a change. I didn't think this movie was too scary. My brother and I really enjoyed this movie."

"I enjoy watching both "The Rugrats" and "The Wild Thornberrys". I've seen both Rugrats movies and because of my work at a day care center and some babysitting, have seen "The Wild Thornberrys Movie" at least half a dozen times. Both shows are humorous and educational and have appeal not only for children, but to adults as well. I was really excited about the seeing RUGRATS GO WILD and how the filmmakers would bring the two different series together. I think they did a fairly decent job.The Rugrats gang is supposed to take a cruise, but Stew arranges for something a little different: a cruise on their own little ship. On the voyage they run into a tropical storm and eventually find themselves shipwrecked on an unpopulated island. Unbeknownst to them, Nigel Thornberry and his family is on the other side of the island, trying to capture a very rare cat on film. Nigel Thornberry happens to be Tommy's hero and Tommy believes that he has to be somewhere in the jungle. He convinces the other kids and the Rugrat babies leave their side in the island and enter the jungle hoping to run into Nigel Thornberry. Surprisingly they do. However, Nigel gets bumped on the head and reverts to a childlike state. Angelica meets up with Debbie and Donnie switches clothes with Chucky and chaos insues.I really enjoyed watching RUGRATS GO WILD. I admit that parts of the movie might be frightening for younger children and the movie deals with some tougher issues that the two shows normally don't touch. Nevertheless, I thought the filmmakers did a wonderful job of bringing everyone together and uniting the two different worlds. Younger children might be frightened by the storm or the wanderings of the babies in the jungle. Some will be confused by all the parallel story-lines. However, older children and youth will probably enjoy the movie and all the different elements. Adults will probably like it as well. I know I did.The DVD includes a game, some scenes that were "deleted" (actually they were never finished), and an alternate ending."
Our 5 & 2/3 year-old daughter loved it!

"She is a HUGE Wild THornberrys fan, and although we don't watch Rugrats, that did little to dampen her enthusiasm for this film. Perfectly pleasant way to spend some time together. I happen to get a kick out of Bruce Willis' singing, and was very pleased that Chrissie Hynde was also featured. As a mom, I preferred The Wild Thornberrys movie, but I forsee at least several more viewings of this film while it's in theatres. Kick back and enjoy the popcorn."
I love it!!

"I love this dvd. The wild Thorberrys and The Rugrats go great together. The Thornberrys and the Rugrats can really relate to each other. Angelica is just like Debbie. Chuckie is just like Donnie. there should be an "All Grown Up" Rugrats Go Wild movie where the rugrats (As teens reunite with the Thornberrys. That would be great."
