Visually, the film is pretty cool to look at. I've never been a huge fan of 3D computer animation (I prefer the old-school Disney style myself) but the characters are pretty funny and well made and the colors are nice and bright. The aliens look especially funny in this one and Jimmy's pal Carl is a picture of geekiness. If your id is a red-headed asthmatic nerd, this film may scar him for life. The flick also comes with a pretty cool soundtrack (depending on whether Aaron Carter is your shtick or not, of course) and some fun sounds. Fun for everyone provided they're not older than twelve!
"The making of Jimmy Neutron" is the first stop you'll encounter. Lasting about 15 minutes, it contains a brief intro to the characters, some of the technical details of the animation as well as Patrick Stewart being charming. You can also catch a glimpse of Entertainment Tonight's Mary Hart and Bob Goen, who have a small role in the film as the voice of, what else, the hosts of a show. You'll also get some background on the story. Next up is a set of music videos. The first one is called "Leave it up to me", by Aaron Carter, younger brother of Backstreet boy Nick. Not really my thing but if you enjoy pre-teen rap, then it may be yours. The second one is "Kids in America", by No Secrets, a girl group consisting of pre-pubescent little girls. While they may be young though, they really don't act it or look it and unfortunately, I think I'll have to stop here since I may be arrested for the thoughts I had while watching this.
The last stop on the tour is a Promotional Spots section, featuring 7 interstitials and 5 cliffhangers. Pretty cool to look at if you have nothing to do, they add a bit of salt to the DVD. Nothing special though but the animation is cool and the spots containing mega-geek Carl are funny to watch. Other than that, you can check out the teaser trailer & theatrical trailer.
