Two thumbs up on this one!!! This movie is a great movie for the whole
family. It is full of action right from the start.

It was nice to see a REALLY GOOD action movie, - without a lot of profanity, or heavy violence.

Trust me - your kids will love it!!

At no time does Spy kids take itself too seriously, leaving the action, cool gadgetry, and vivid scenery to take you on an exciting joyride through a world of genial espionage. The movie also quietly mocks other kids entertainment that pollutes our culture as well as itself. I'm not sure if kids will pick up this characteristic, but you certainly will. This put a huge smile on my face. Spy kid is a kid's film that any adult can fully enjoy.

The Website (editors note: see sidebar on right) also shares these characteristics, featuring a fun interactive game that is reminiscent of the movie. It's a great place to relive the Spy kids experience. I highly recommend visiting the website and seeing the movie.

Spy Kids had just the right mix of action without violence, beautiful scenes, and humor. Go see it, with or without your kids.

"Spy Kids" could've been a Disney movie, judging by the title of the film. Matter of fact, it is. "Spy Kids" is released by Deminsion Films, which is owned by Miramax films and in turn is owned by Disney. But back to the movie.

"Spy Kids" is a fun romp of a movie, which is appealing to both young and old. The spy forumla worked very well. A group of kids whose parents are secret agents come to their rescue after they were kidnapped. After directing a number of adult films, Richard Rodriguez decided to turn their attention to family movies.

"Spy Kids" answers the burning question of what would happen if James Bond had kids.

This was a bad movie.

The special effects were great. The story was OK. Antonio Bandarez was cool.

All of that could not even come close to saving this movie. The special effects were going on too much in pointless, meaningless, unreal situations. I almost walked out to see another movie.

I'm sure kids would like it. But I am a 17 year old and I felt stupid for going to this childish movie.
