Threat advisory: High - High risk of entertaining activities
Saving the world before bedtime!
When Professor Utonium (Tom Kane) set about to create three perfect little girls, he included the highly-volatile Chemical X along with sugar, spice and everything nice - thus creating the super-powered Powerpuff Girls. Every time evil super villains threaten their hometown of Townsville, Bubbles (Tara Strong), Blossom (Cathy Cavadini) and Buttercup (Elizabeth Daily) fly into action to defeat evil... before their bedtime.
Based on the cartoon and comic book.

The Powerpuff Girls movie is a fun and harmless adventure into the arena of superheroes (superheroines if you want to be sexist) for children and action role models for girls. It's probably as close to Spirited away as a Hollywood film can get but that's not to say that they are much alike at all. The Powerpuff Girls movie is running and hitting and jumping up and down as quickly as possible while Spirited away is more about the things that happen between the running and hitting and jumping up and down.
It's good, though, to see girls do all the things that have previously been the province of boys (ie running and hitting and jumping up and down). Bubbles, Blossom and Buttercup may be made from sugar and spice and all things nice but that doesn't mean they have to behave that way.
The cast interviews on the DVD are funny. They take the piss out of the special features on live action DVDs. Hee, hee, hee.
I do have to wonder about the girls' eyes, though, they look like they've just come back from an all-weekend rave.
