Worst Things About Paramount Making a Live-Action Rugrats Movie


But seriously, while I do feel like the revival series may be good, a live action movie that has recently been announced proves Hollywood still won't learn.

The Top Ten

1 The show doesn't work for live-action

I may not like this show but how the hell can you make a baby act? Babies aren't supposed to act because they're babies! I can't even imagine how awkward they'd look in CGI. - DarkMatter1997

The idea of this makes me think of that terrible movie called Baby Geniuses. - MegaSoulhero

Just when Nickelodeon feels like they're getting good again, they pull a garbage move like this. - phillysports

2 They will use CGI babies

This reminds me of Twilight, where Edward and Bella's daughter was completely CGI. Not only was I NOT impressed, but it was the very first time I said a baby was ugly. Not the best moment for me...

Considering this is a live-action film based on Rugrats, this is not a direction which I am looking forward to. CGI babies? Hell no! - CrimsonShark

Just like how they used CGI Fairies for the live-action Fairly OddParents movies. And I think we all know how that turned out. Don't even get me started on CGI Scooby-Doo. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I honestly thought this era of live-action/CGI movie adaptations of classic cartoons was behind us. This is just going to be another Smurfs/Alvin and the Chipmunks/Marmaduke. - phillysports

They will? Son of a mask! - CloudInvasion

3 It proves that Hollywood still hasn't learned its lesson after all the terrible cartoon-to-film adaptations

If you can't make a reboot that improves on the original, don't bother making it. You're just wasting our time and money. Leave good enough alone. - phillysports

Hollywood needs to learn. - 445956

4 It only exists for money

They already did All Grown Up - 445956

"We've got to have money." - girlcool

5 It is completely not needed

Nobody asked for this. Its an attempt at a cash cow but my question is- is this generation even familiar with the rugrats. I mean honestly ask a 10 year old about the rugrats and they will have no clue what you're talking about - RustyNail

Why RUGRATS? - 445956

6 It will look horrifying

Maybe not as much as I'm Not Tommy, but still - 445956

7 They aren't attracting viewers

Who would watch it? - 445956

8 It only exists for nostalgia purposes

There's no denying Nickelodeon is trying to cash in on 90's nostalgia in this late decade. While I appreciate all the reboots or revivals in the form of television movies based on shows like Hey Arnold!, Rocko's Modern Life, Invader Zim, and of course, Rugrats, the whole live-action Rugrats movie idea was completely unneeded. None of the other classic Nick properties they're reviving are getting live-action adaptations, so why Rugrats other than the fact that it's the only other Nicktoon that's the most popular aside from SpongeBob? - ModernSpongeBobSucks

9 It has a high chance of being cancelled

I also do think that most old movies and T.V. shows should not be rebooted

This kind of movie always has the chance - 445956

10 It probably won't use the same voice actors

They are getting old, and they will get less talented people to do it - 445956

The Contenders

11 It could end up like another Baby Geniuses
12 It might not do well in theaters
13 It might be a rehash if the first movie
14 Not many kids even know what Rugrats is
