The Powerpuff Girls

In a Nutshell: Saving the world (before bedtime) has never been so fun! And I don’t even watch the show.

Quick Plot: How the girls came to be (happens during the opening credits, so don’t be late!) and all about their first days, both at school and kicking butt.

In Detail: I liked this movie a lot. I have seen the show occasionally; I find it very “hit and miss” for me, so I wasn’t sure what I would think of the film. It was so much fun! It tells the story of how the Powerpuff Girls came to be in the first place, so you don’t feel left out if you haven’t seen the show. There may be some in jokes I missed, but I still had a ball. I do think that a couple of segments (playing tag, fight the monkeys) went on a bit too long. Too violent (though roughly on par with the show) for parents sensitive about such things. The flow and pace were excellent, and it wasn’t too childish (for the most part); plenty of adult only humor available here. Great fun! Won’t lose anything on the small screen, but that driving techno music in the background just won’t be the same at home.

Will I Buy It? Mmmm, I don’t know. More than likely, we will own it eventually, but perhaps not as soon as it comes out.
