Upon learning their stepmother (Jessica Alba) is a retired spy, twin siblings step up to help save the world from an evil maniac known as Timekeeper (Jeremy Piven).
" Rodriguez only needs the script to take us from one gimmick to the next, and his lack of attention to it shows. "
" Feels more like straight-to-DVD filler than a chapter in one of the last decade's most entertaining and sophisticated family-film franchises. "
" An endless series of scatological jokes saps the charm out of nearly every scene, and there's little effort to create an interesting mystery at the movie's center. "
" Would have been better titled Spy Kids: All the Time Puns in the World. "
" 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. "
" The gadgets are a lot of fun, including a robot dog with more functions than a Swiss Army Knife, hilariously voiced by Ricky Gervais. "
" This fourth "Spy Kids" picture isn't so much bad as it is just boring, lacking the buzz and brio of even some of the earlier entries in the series. "
" 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. "
" Life is too short for Spy Kids: All the Time in the World in 4D. "
" A pleasant time-waster kids will love with a pro-family togetherness message parents can appreciate... "
" Like its predecessors, a tediously cartoonish candy-colored rollercoaster. "
" Robert Rodriguez clobbers home his messages about family and quality time with such bludgeoning force that ushers should hand you a helmet to go with your 3-D glasses. "
" A cheap-looking, vaguely depressing echo of Robert Rodriguez's well-loved kidpic trilogy, assembled with minimal imagination or effort. "
