Movie Mom at Yahoo! Movies

A child bank robber heartlessly manipulates her two best friends and risks the lives of her friends, her baby brother, and everyone else. What were they thinking?

Painfully bad. A real head-scratcher.

It's a juicy premise, but the enactment is so dumbed-down that you couldn't possibly fault your jaded children for yawning and rolling their eyes.

Scott Weinberg thought the Spy Kids trilogy wouldn't spawn its own line of copycats? Puh-leeze.

This thing is so silly and so ridiculous.

Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)

Plays like Mission: Impossible: The Xbox Years and which contains dialogue swiped from Austin Powers and The Simpsons.

Slant Magazine

Now that the Spy Kids trilogy has whiz-banged to an end, Fox saw the need to exploit the film's kiddie superspy chic and "yay family!" message.

Eric D. Snider

Apart from a few serious leaps in logic, the story moves along swiftly and painlessly, and is not needlessly cute or stupid. But that's not much of a recommendation.

The only thing to "catch" in this film is perhaps a cold--from sitting in the theater with the 'tweener set.

The script by Michael Brandt and Derek Haas strains credulity -to say the least! -- but if nothing else, it manages to work in all the obligatory heist movie cliches.

...[an] implausible hyperactive giddy go-cart caper...this junior-sized Mission: Impossible wannabe is nothing but an overwrought knockoff that doesn't measure up

I want to hear Jack Valenti explain why this movie is acceptable for young children and the PG-13-rated Whale Rider is not.

It's almost identical, in terms of plot and character, to the delightful Danish film it's a remake of, so why does it fall flat and leave a slightly greasy aftertaste?

It basically says that it's okay to put yourself, your friends and your infant brother in mortal danger (not to mention steal a quarter of a million dollars) if your purpose is noble.

Catch That Kid, though not produced by Disney, has all the feel of a Disney Channel TV special.

Has enough character and high-tech hardware to make it watchable, if not much more than that.

A slick little package that will seem patently ridiculous to anyone past adolescence even as their younger brothers and sisters eat it up.
