    I took my daughter to see this today. While the movie is enjoyable enough for me, she asked if we could leave about an hour into it. I think they missed their target audience on this one. I did find it a nice back story, but it lacked much of the humor of the show. Oh well.

    Hmm, was going to take my daughter to this as both my wife and I are big fans of the show. Maybe we should just wait.

    The movie's 90 minutes long. I saw it because of the girlfriend, essentially, and ended up enjoying it a lot more than some of the other movies friends have dragged me to (i.e. Scooby Doo)..

    The big question for me: will the inevitable DVD be OAR? Or will they wimp out and pan-n-scan it?

    "Hmm, was going to take my daughter to this as both my wife and I are big fans of the show. Maybe we should just wait."

    You should probably catch it while it's still in theaters (and I'm sure, due to the lackluster Box Office, that it will only be around for another week), or just wait for the budget theaters to hit.

    If you're questioning the length, the film is 73 minutes with credits, plus the 6 minute Dexter's Laboratory, (plus the probable 15 minutes of previews) so roughly 80 minutes total.

    Film-tech's will be surprised to hear the 73 minute film is on SIX reels, with one reel running roughly 5 minutes (near the end). I really didn't understand this, as the whole film, short and attached trailers could fit in a four-reel cannister very easily.

    "The big question for me: will the inevitable DVD be OAR? Or will they wimp out and pan-n-scan it?"

    I guess the real question is if Cartoon Network, which probably has a big control over this movie, wants a full frame or 16x9 widescreen transfer on it. I'm sure hoping so!

    I wanted to catch this in the theater as well, but after a week it's already down to only two showings a day at just a handful of theaters. Oh well, I guess I'll wait for the DVD and hope to God that it's OAR.

    If it's a choice between Powerpuff Girls and Lilo & Stitch, go for Lilo! I loved it!

    Well, I would too, but since this thread is about Powerpuff Girls and I surprisingly liked the film, I say Go Powerpuff! [​IMG]

    I thought some of the scenes went on forever in PPG, like the whole chase scene went on and on.

    I thought the evil monkey sequence was brilliant.
