Kim Possible Movie: So the Drama (2005)

3 1/2 Stars (out of 4)

Here's the Sitch

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

It turns out that Saturday morning cartoon staple KimPossible and her pals were tailor made for feature length. This new 71-minutestraight-to-video movie is good enough that it should have seen a theatricalrelease. Certainly it's better than some of the recent CG features like Madagascar. What's more, it uses crisp, vibrant hand-drawnanimation that many studios seem to think is so stodgy. With prom coming up,Kim (voiced by Christy Carlson Romano) is worried about not having a boyfriend,while her best pal Ron Stoppable (voiced by Will Friedle) and his pet nakedmole rat Rufus (voiced by Nancy Cartwright) are upset about their favoritetaqueria going under new management and changing its policies. Worse,supervillain Drakken (voiced by John DiMaggio)and his sexy sidekick Shego (voiced by NicoleSullivan) are cooking up some kind of multi-layered plan that does notbecome clear until it's too late. The filmmakers have done a spectacular job ofmaking the story big enough to fill a feature-length time slot withoutstretching it too thin or letting their cards show. The movie even strikes up asweet little romance. Kim Possible Movie: So the Drama is good enough to be taken seriously by animationnuts and not just Saturday morning cartoon junkies.

DVD Details: Extras include a bonus cartoon ("Gorilla Fist"), deleted scenes and music videos.
