Critic Consensus: Burdened by a rote plot and unfunny scatological humor, All the Time in the World suggests that the Spy Kids franchise has run its course.

Critic Reviews for Spy Kids: All the Time in the World in 4D
Rodriguez's family franchise about underage secret agents limps into its fourth installment with shiny CGI and frequent fart jokes to hold the attention spans of the underage and undemanding.
Like its predecessors, a tediously cartoonish candy-colored rollercoaster.
Rodriguez's various family-geared movies - notably the "Spy Kids'' series - have been annoying creative clunkers, the one area where doing things his way has seemed like an iffy way.
comes with all the silliness and sugar-coated pop fanaticism that is found in Rodriguez's lesser kids films
No matter how many dimensions you slap on the poster, there's no accounting for lazy workmanship. Can Robert Rodriguez please make Sin City 2 now?
Audience Reviews for Spy Kids: All the Time in the World in 4D
Let's do this backwards:
4-D: The "4th Dimension" - the scratch and sniff cards. Complete and utter FAILURE. Nobody in my theater could smell anything at all except the cardboard it was printed on. We might as well have been sniffing our ticket stubs. Even my daughter, who was quite excited abot the gimmick, gave up by the third "scent", handed me the card, and said "I don't need this - it doesn't work." It was a silly idea to begin with, but something kids might have gotten a kick out of... if it worked... at ALL... which it didn't.
3-D: How about the 3-D? Mostly pointless, but then again most 3-D movies are. My biggest complaint it this: Why bother making a movie 3-D, but only do parts of it? Every live-action 3D movie I've seen including this one have many scenes and shots that aren't even in 3D. You can tell when you can take off your glasses and it's a strictly 2D image. I don't mean just certain whole scenes, but even just shots within a scene. For example within one dialogue scene the 3-D was used on only about every third cut, even if it was more of the same exact shot(?) So not only are they too lazy to shoot it in 3D, but they don't even convert the whole thing.
2D: The movie itself. Harmless, simple fun for the kids, although the actual new Spy Kids don't get to do much until the last third of the movie. The biggest problem: *SPOILER ALERT* was that even from the first trailers it was obvious Jeremy Piven was the villain, much less from every single scene in the movie. Yet they make a big deal of his predictable reveal. Was anyone surprised? *END SPOILER*
All in all what could have been a decent action flick for kids (and a restart to the franchise with new kids) is mostly a dud, due in large part to the heavily promoted "aromascope" gimmick which not only wasn't good.... it didn't even work.
to the same standard as the rest. there were a few plot elements that made no sense, but for kids, the movie was entertaining. not as visually stimulating as the past 3 in the franchise, but overall an average kids flick.
Spy Kids: All the Time in the World in 4D is about a family out to save the world. The plot was good. Acting was good but lacking at times. Action and special effects was really good. The 4d part was not good.
