Clever and strange, 'Spy Kids: All the Time in the World in 4D' is a psychedelic action movie that will boggle and entertain the minds of adults and kids alike. If you like wordplay, you will like it all the more for the witty dialogue.

Rodriguez reboots his eight-years-dormant franchise, with surprisingly entertaining and loosey-goosey results

Displaying a visual flair rare for a family film, this is entertaining, escapist fun.

A nice mix of old-fashioned imagination (anagrams, pranks, secret spaces) and newfangled effects (gizmos, gadgets, graphics), it's a rollicking, never obnoxious family flick.

... a shiny, complicated toy that's silly and doesn't really do anything, but is fun to play with.

In Spy Kids 4, women are warriors and men freely cry about their fathers, and it's this inversion that made me love the movie a little bit extra.

A pleasant time-waster kids will love with a pro-family togetherness message parents can appreciate...

Watchable, gadget-happy children's adventure that scrapes a pass thanks to likeable characters, pacey direction, some decent gags and Jessica Alba in a leather catsuit...

So plain-faced and literal-minded in its juvenile pandering that it's hard to dismiss it as a mere cash-in.

The gadgets are a lot of fun, including a robot dog with more functions than a Swiss Army Knife, hilariously voiced by Ricky Gervais.

It simply entertains at a basic level without leaving a lasting impression.

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.

Let's make things clear right now: Spy Kids: All the Time in the World is juvenile, rough around the edges, and frequently clumsy. And yet...and yet...the film is so likably innocuous and unsuspectingly wise that it works better than it should.

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?

A concatenation of scatological humor likely to keep only tiny tykes in stitches and howling away at a poop and fart jokes.

...fairly routine fare, even for kids, and aside from cool gadgets it's just a bit dull.

Don't take your kids to see this. I never thought I would say this, but take them to see The Smurfs instead. It's a smurfload better than this pile of smurf.

Now then, what of the movie? Well, it stands a better chance of getting up your nose than crummy old AromaScope, that's for sure.

The stars of the old Spy Kids movies are no longer kids, of course. Spy Kids 3D: Game Over was released way back in 2003.
