I feel like they balance that tricky plotline well so... kids can have a heist movie that's for them.

Painfully bad. A real head-scratcher.

Neither the planning of the heist, nor its execution is done with the skill needed for it to be compelling.

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

If screenwriters Michael Brandt and Derek Haas atempted to write a servicable script, it isn't obvious.

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

It's neither as funny as it needs to be nor serious enough to elicit more than a few crinkled brows from kids and their parents alike.

Hmm. A mixed bag of messages for kids.

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.

It's doubtful that anyone involved in Catch That Kid ever considered this anything more than a paycheck.
February 14, 2004 thought the Spy Kids trilogy wouldn't spawn its own line of copycats? Puh-leeze.

This thing is so silly and so ridiculous.

Another Spy Kids rip-off that's no great catch.

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