  • Summary: They are specialists in their fields: a rock climber, a computer genius, a mechanical whiz. Their task: to rob one of the world's most impenetrable banks to save an ailing father. Their plan is foolproof; their methods are ingenious. And they're not old enough to drive. (20th Century Fox)

    Catch That Kid respects all of the requirements of the genre, and the heist itself is worthy of "Ocean's Eleven" (either one; take your pick).

    Flatters its audience by dividing the grown-up world into mean idiots and nice idiots, which might be interestingly subversive if the movie had anything on its mind. Instead, it's just a Hollywood crash course: Heist Films 101.

    An action romp with heart. If that heart is somewhat misguided, it's hard to deny the family-friendly thrills and spills along the way.
  4. 40
    A parade of missed opportunities.
  5. 30
    The film combines dour heroes with a drab look, and the string of "Don't try this at home"-style stunts should underwhelm even viewers too young for James Bond or XXX.
  6. Offers little in the way of originality, real excitement or even genuinely transgressive behavior.

    A stale, overbudgeted, child-empowerment fantasy that's every bit as excruciating as the director's previous work.
