But in reality, trying to mother Rebecca and Cecil, who clearly don’t want her around, is her toughest challenge yet. Also, her husband, Wilbur, wouldn’t know a spy if he lived with one which is exactly the case - Marissa’s a retired secret agent. Marissa’s world is turned upside down when the maniacal Timekeeper threatens to take over the planet and she’s called back into action by the head of OSS, home of the greatest spies and where the now-defunct Spy Kids division was created. With Armageddon quickly approaching, Rebecca and Cecil are thrust into action when they learn their boring stepmom was once a top agent and now the world’s most competitive ten year olds are forced to put their bickering aside and rely on their wits. With a little help from a couple of very familiar Spy Kids, Carmen and Juni Cortez, and some mind-blowing gadgets, they just may be able to save the world and possibly bring their family together while they’re at it.(The Weinstein Company)

    Far more coherent than its immediate predecessor, Spy Kids: All the Time in the World in 4D benefits greatly from its two likable young leads and some of the series' wittiest, pun-filled writing.

    Even the use of the 3D format -- and the 4D "Aroma-Scope," which allows the viewer to enjoy various odors in sync with the film -- adds to its good-natured earnestness.

    Far more charming, quick-witted and high spirited than anyone could have expected...for a film that didn't screen for press. It's gimmicky up the wazoo (not just 3D, but scratch-and-sniff "Aroma-Scope" cards handed out at screenings) and it's all the better for it.

    Nobody has much that's funny to say or cool to do. Even the spy gadgets are lame.

    Alba, meanwhile, is again ridiculously shoehorned into a comedy gig, although she does have an amusing opening bit spying while nine months pregnant. If only diaper bomb gags weren't the inevitable follow-up.

    The Spy Kids series once seemed charmingly homemade. These days, it feels less charmingly homemade than maddeningly amateurish.

    Even by the broad standards of children's flicks, the film's prank-prone next-gen tween spy Rebecca (Blanchard) is one monstrous brat.

I don't see why this has the rating it has. Most of this is fast-paced nostalgic kiddie fare. If more kids were logged in to Metacritic, I can see a higher rating than this. Expand

Stick with the first two movies, as they are vastly superior to this load of gimmicky tripe. Expand

I felt that theThis is a total waste of time if it wasn't aimed at children. You don't want to see this without your child that is for sure. I felt that the movie was weakly written (except for the dog in the movie). This movie is offered in 4D and that means that we got a card and it was in Smell-O-Vision of some sort. The thing that turned me off this movie the most was the fact that they aim it at children, but have to say "OH Shi---taki mushrooms. What the heck is that all about. The comedy that the dog gave was funny. I guess they were trying to keep the parents who had to suffer through this entertained, but they failed miserably. You have to take your child to go see this only for the fact that they're going to love it and it is always fun to watch the children react to the different scenes. The 3D was good and my daughter kept trying to reach for the things floating around. You are going to laugh at some points, but for an overall movie, you might want to skip this. They make you smell poop for heavens sake! Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Do not see this movie. This movie, is an utter disgrace to the genre of spies. The acting is downright horrible, the CG is horrible, and the jokes are utterly painful to sit through. And if people were to say to me: "Well what do you expect? Its main audience is children.", that still does not give it a free pass (No one in the theatre even laughed, not even the kids). Oh and one last thing: The villian is completely stupid. His mask is so bad that it makes me laugh to tears, and his plan, if done in reality, would bring about the end of time. Overall, it is a stupid movie. Expand
