Deep within his top secret chambers secured by DNA-match entry codes are an ultra-sensitive alien transmission device, a highly dangerous shrink ray gun, and a personalized rocket ship, all of which he invents to pass the time. This extremely advanced technological wizard is Jimmy Neutron, the pint-sized grade-school boy with a pompadour. When all parents are abducted by aliens and held captive by the minions of Poultra, God of Wrath, the children turn to the boy genius to lead them in their intergalactic rescue mission on amusement-park spaceships. This completely implausible full-length Nickelodeon cartoon by writer/director John A. Davis is based on a 1995 animated short. Although it lacks the wit and reality needed to please a crowd over four feet tall, it does have a kid-like charm with fun and fast-paced creativity for the dreamy-eyed first grader.
