Powerpuff Girls: The Movie (DVD)
The prologue to every Powerpuff Girls show explains how the perky threesome were created in Professor Utonium's lab--by a combination of sugar, spice, and everything nice, along with an accidental dash of Chemical X--but how is it that they started fighting crime? Why didn't they just take their superpowers to the playground and use them for fun? And what's behind evil monkey MoJo JoJo's never-ending quest for Powerpuff vengeance? All questions are answered in The Powerpuff Girls Movie, which details the creation of Blossom (the commander and leader), Bubbles (the joy and laughter), and Buttercup (the toughest fighter) in more depth than ever before, and the result is a speedy, fun joy ride through the girls' early days. At first, the girls are happy-go-lucky, fitting in nicely at Pokey Oaks kindergarten, until a game of tag gets riotously out of hand (destroying the city of Townsville in the process) and they're shunned by the town populace. Alone, they find their only ally in MoJo, a monkey with a peculiarly large brain and a sympathetic nature, but is MoJo really on their side? The 87-minute length doesn't offer the breakneck momentum that regular episodes do, but it's still riotously funny and filled with tons of Powerpuff fighting. Fans may miss the other super villains featured in the show (MoJo's the only bad guy in town, for now), but with the jokes and action coming fast, you'll be pleasantly enraptured by the perky threesome. (Ages 7 and up) --Mark Englehart

I've never been a huge fan of The PowerPuff Girls. The show was always kind of hit and miss for me. But some of the episodes were truly brilliant, and when I heard that the movie was coming to theaters I was definitely interested. Maybe it was the trailer, maybe it was all the other movies that came out at the same time; or maybe I was just busy. But somehow or other I never got around to seeing this movie in theaters. For a long time now (ever since the DVD came out) I've wanted to give it a rent. I rented it a few weeks ago and bought it almost immediately afterward. I feel like I horribly cheated myself by missing this one in theaters. Many people who haven't seen this movie probably think what I first thought when I heard about the movie. "Probably largely more of the same." More cuteness, more simple yet stylish animation, and WAY more fight scenes, right? WRONG!
From the moment the movie starts, it's apparent that WAY more work went into this movie than into your average episode of the series. WAY better animation, WAY better music, WAY better dialog. TONS of character development. Dramatic camera angles. Yes, all the good things that make great anime, or great cartoons, or great movies, crammed into a little over an hour. If you've ever watched an episodes of Dexter's Lab or PowerPuff girls, you know what to expect. Parody of classic movies (in this case, especially planet of the apes), with cool zoom-out shots, ominous villain laughing and slick action sequences. And speaking of action...
Does this movie have action? Yes it does. But not non-stop way-too much action.Read more ›
Our story begins with the Girl's creation. After witnessing a supermarket holdup, Professor Utonium, decides to create perfect little girls, little does he know, his Chemical X, accidentally mixed in with his concoction of sugar, spice, and everything nice, results in the most powerful kindergarteners anywhere. Thus, the PowerPuff Girls were born! Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup.
Blossom, the intellectual, is the leader of her superhero trio. Brainy and sassy, she can outwit even the most enormous monster, or the most sinister villain, even Mojo Jojo!
Bubble is the cute and cuddly comic relief. Make no mistakes though, she may spend her off-time coloring and playing with her stuffed animals, but when the bad guys come around, Bubbles has proven time and time again that she's just as tough (and sometimes even tougher, than her sisters).
Buttercup (so named because it also begins with B) is the tough one. She's a miniature cartoon version of Joan Jett. She likes to fight bad guys, and doesn't take crap from anyone.
As our story continues, we meet the mayor, Miss Bellum, the kindergarten teacher, and of course the most evil presence to come along since Darth Vader, Mojo Jojo! He may be no taller than 2 feet (with a foot high brain!), but he is the essence of pure evil. Though he can never decide if he wants to rule the world or destroy it.
In this grand film of epic proportions, Mojo tricks the girls into building his secret laboratory. It is located conveniently in the center of Townsville on top of an active volcano.Read more ›
