"The Rugrats Movie" arrives just in time for the holidays to delight fans of the wildly popular Nickelodeon TV series featuring the adventures of the world's most precocious babies. They're actually perfectly normal kids; it's just that they speak and move and reason at a breathtakingly early age. As a work of animation this Paramount release is fresh and witty, rich in its colors and jaunty in style. As ideal and welcome a family entertainment as it is, a word of caution is in order.

In what promises to be an unpredictable first half of the holiday season, "The Rugrats Movie" bested its formidable adult-oriented competitors to take the top slot at the box office for the pre-Thanksgiving weekend. The estimated $28-million debut on 2,782 screens is better than $10,000 a theater, which means attendance was mighty, since many of the admissions for the animated picture were children's matinee tickets.
