Spy Kids: All the Time in the World came out too late for anyone to care. By this point I was getting too old for kids movies like this. So this became the only family friendly Robert Rodriguez movie I didn’t see in theaters. Just like Spy Kids 3-D, Spy Kids 4-D tries to force another gimmick. This time by incorporating scratch & sniff cards. A process previously used in 2003 where you scratch a number and smell what’s in the movie. Although you might not want to pick them up with smells like dog farts on them.
Spy Kids: All the Time in the World follows a new less interesting spy kid duo. The girl likes to pull pranks and the boy has hearing loss. They’re no comparison to Carmen and Juni. Who are of course in the movie along with Machete. Alexa Vega looks more mature and Daryl Sabara is a lot bigger. Aside from their appearance, Jessica Alba is the only other draw. She plays a spy mom that’s married to the father of the kids. Ricky Gervais also plays a sarcastic robot dog, but it’s nothing but potty humor. The kids try to take down a villain called “The Time Keeper.” Who plans to stop time or something. With a forgettable plot that can’t compare to the original trilogy, Spy Kids: All the Time in the World does nothing but waste your time.
