Audience Reviews for Catch That Kid

  • May 21, 2011
    "You're never too young to use sex as a tool to get what you want." A high-tech kid caper about a 12-year-old girl Maddy (a very young Kristen Stewart) who enlists her two best guy pals, one a good looking go-kart mechanic (Max Thieriot) and the other a computer geek (Corbin Bleu), to help her steal money from her mom's high-security bank to pay for her father's medical operation because the Insurance won't cover it. Recommended for a young audience who will enjoy the action such as a go-kart chase by the police and watching a bunch of young teens pulling off a bank robbery. <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Image and video hosting by TinyPic"></a> <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Image and video hosting by TinyPic"></a> <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Image and video hosting by TinyPic"></a>

    Alright, yes it is a very basic storyline, but to me, whatever they could do with it, they did to it. The 3 main leads are all upcoming stars, because all of their characters are extremely likable. It is pure family enjoyment, filled with thrills and some very touchy moments! Well worth watching, even if it's only once.

    Cast: Kristen Stewart, Corbin Bleu, Max Thieriot, Jennifer Beals, Sam Robards, John Carroll Lynch, James LeGros, Stark Sands, Kevin G. Schmidt, Meagen Fay, Audrey Wasilewski, Michael Des Barres, Christine Estabrook Director: Bart Freundlich Summary: Three specialists in their fields -- a rock climber, a computer genius and a mechanical wiz -- take on the nearly impossible task of robbing one of the world's most impenetrable banks in order to save an ailing father. Their plan is foolproof, their methods are ingenious ... and they're not even old enough to drive! My Thoughts: "The movie is more of a kids film, obviously considering it is a kids film. But it's OK for us adults too. It is sweet to see a daughter go through such extremes for her father. But it's not very realistic. But not much is in kid films. The then kids, Kristen Stewart, Corbin Bleu, and Max Thieriot did a great job in the movie. But I think the kids will enjoy this much more then us adults."
