The visual effects don't really hold up 10 years later, but Spy Kids is still a charming, energetic, inventive kids' flick that balances its goofier side with its a sense of dramatic maturity.

The entire ensemble of old pros play their designated roles well; standing out are Cumming, whose trademark impishness fits this role like a glove; and Danny Trejo, playing a nice guy for a change and pulling it off wonderfully.

In terms of its family ethos, this makes an interesting comparison with the Addams Family films.

The first great movie of 2001...this is Raiders of the Lost Ark in the form of a gleefully smiling Happy Meal.
