New this week: "Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius" is a 10-year-old (voiced by Debi Derryberry) whose enlarged head is roomy enough to contain an overactive, overreaching brain and sport a voluminous spit curl that Ace Ventura would covet. The movie's clatter and whiz-bang suggest more humor than there actually is, although the tension between Jimmy and his female bete noire Cindy Vortex (Candi Milo) is thorny enough to strike some sparks among the pastels. Otherwise, there's barely more invention in the animation than in the concept. Digitally animated in the manner of 1950s puppet shows, it was nominated for a best animated feature Oscar.
