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

1. As a show, sometimes the Girls are funny, sometimes they are not. But the work is never consistent. In the movie, they have nothing to do except stop Mojo Jojo, which they have already done on the show, here it was like a rehash of the episodes, only it ran 85 minutes longer and it was very tedious.
2. Warners did not market this movie very effectively. They thought the Powerpuff Girls were pretty well known enough on Cartoon Network and that word of mouth by the fans would be enough. Well it turns out that they are not as well known by the public as thought and as a result, this movie sort of fizzled out at the box office less then a few weeks after release.
3. The animation is pretty standard. A little bit more detailed then on the show, but they really did not take advantage of the wide screen to do more animation effects, or make it look better then what you would have seen on TV.
As with almost all Warner Brothers DVDs, this one is pretty inexpensive looking, with it's snap open display case, lack of interesting bonus features, and presented in the Full Screen format which crowds the picture and keeps you from seeing the whole film.
End result; Warners should go back to making Bugs Bunny cartoons.
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.
The Powerpuff Girls movie is something for most Powerpuff Girls, Simpsons, South Park, Futurama, Crank Yankers, Rugrats and Sabrina The teenage witch fans to own.
