Three superpowered pre-teens battle to save their city in this big-screen spin-off of the phenomenally popular animated TV series.
While attempting to create the perfect little girl (sugar, spice, everything nice, etc.) in his lab, Professor Utonium accidently adds Chemical X to the mix and ends up with a trio of superpowered girls, Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup. After accidently trashing the city during an overly enthusiastic game of tag, the girls realize that they must prove themselves in order to gain acceptance. Their opportunity comes soon enough when they're tricked by the shifty monkey Jojo, and must then thwart his bid to take over the city. A dizzy, delirious, neon-lit mash-up of video games, comic books and Japanese anime that blends more cuteness than a kitten convention with a surprisingly grown-up sense of humour, this prequel to the hit animated TV series is pure cinematic confection. "Rated PG for non-stop frenetic animated action[!]" (Rating Board, Motion Picture Association of America).
