We gave it an A-

All those Oscar pundits who were shocked when Nickelodeon’s CGI ‘toon Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius was nominated for Best Animated Feature over Richard Linklater’s ”Waking Life” overlooked one important fact: ”Jimmy” rocks. The flick’s lightning-quick script and bouncy visuals are every bit as ingenious as its hero, a prepubescent inventor who saves the adults of Retroville from the evil egglike aliens known as the Yolkians. You don’t need to be a rocket scientist to see that ”Jimmy” belongs in the same league as ”Shrek” and ”Monsters, Inc.”
