We gave it a B-

Nickelodeon’s website for the big-screen adaptation of its ‘toon about a fourth-grader with a football-shaped head is mostly harmless kids’ stuff: You can send e-cards, download screensavers, or play five games (Runaway Bus 3D Game is the coolest). But while the series commendably features diverse characters, the stereotypical profile of villain Nick Vermicelli (”so oily, you could run your car off the grease from his comb”) brings new meaning to greasy kids’ stuff.
