    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.

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

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

    The fall-off in sexiness, soulfulness and wittiness from Ms. Gugino and Antonio Banderas, the parents in the first three "Spy Kids" films, to Ms. Alba and Joel McHale is whiplash steep.

    A cheap-looking, vaguely depressing echo of Robert Rodriguez's well-loved kidpic trilogy, assembled with minimal imagination or effort.

    Arriving eight years after the lame third installment in Dimension's profitable series, this seems like far too little way too late.

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

Although Spy Kids 3 wasn't that great for 3-D viewing just the 2-D is way better. A fourth installment with no Carmen and Juni may seem feel a little queasy and with a long set of casting, I have no other choice but to make Spy Kids: All the Time in the World needs to put this franchise into bedtime. And on second thought, a wasteless movie of the so-called "4-D" "Aroma-Scope." It will make your eyes scanned into a lava pit. Full Review »

I loved the spy kids movies now it felt like the director was just being cheap and lazy. The actors just sounded lazy when they did this move. Full Review »
