Spy Kids 4: All The Time In The World...uh...
The Kids World of Robert Rodriguez is a fascinating place. I love, love, love the first Spy Kids film. It's extremely silly with a little kiddie gross-out comedy and a whole lotta heart in the Cortez Family with Mama Gugino and Papa Banderas and Uncle Machete himself, Danny Trejo. The second film had some fun moments with its cheapie Harryhausen love, but the third film with its clockwork Stallone and iffy 3D was absolutely awful. As was Rodriguez's Shark Boy and Lava Girl...but Shorts had some nice moments although the kiddie gross-out stuff has gotten old. Spy Kids 4...well, take a look at the trailer below. I don't see that heart there with Jessica Alba and Joel McHale. And the vomit bag gag is just annoying. Still, I'll check it out but I need Rodriguez's next film to really knock it outta the park. He needs another Desperado.
