I remember watching Spy Kids 2 a hundred times when I was a kid. I loved that movie!  



RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: As has (hopefully) been clarified here by now, no one here is arguing that the first 2 SPY KIDS films were RAZZIE®-worthy. Clearly, the series went "off the rails" with the 3rd/3-D installment, in which Stallone played five characters (and maybe should've "won" 5 RAZZIES®?). 

The idea of taking this franchise yet a 4th step after that fiasco seems to many of us to be begging for a RAZZing..

I remember seeing the trailer for this when I went to see 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2' with my family and even then I knew it was gonna suck. And when the trailer announced the movie would be in "4-D" with "Aroma-Scope" (Smell-o-Vision to some) I remember thinking to myself, "This is just getting ridiculous..."  
You see in this filmmaking world there's two types of people my friend. Those with the knowledge of film and those who think they do but really don't.

While there's no consensus review just yet at R.T, I predict this will definitely stay in the 6-12% approval range.

I suspect a lot of the new films are bombing because of the 3-D. It's been an ongoing trend this year, while all the 2-D flicks are doing fantastically well, like The Help and Rise of the Planet of the Apes, which is unfortunate because some of these 3=D films are quite good, like the Fright Night remake.

Spy Kids production budget was only 27 million. Making almost half of it in it's first weekend is not a bomb. Also these movies really don't cost anything to make.

It's actually 22% right now and still no consensus.

There should be a law banning Robert Rodriguez from making anymore kids movies. Especially since he makes some of the most entertaining, gory, and funnest r-rated action movies out there. it's such a shame to see him do something as low brow as this. It pains me to say this but i think he probably needs another razzie nod, if nothing else maybe it will help him wake up and realize that he needs to stop this crap and start making Sin City 2.

I really wish Robert Rodriquez wouldn't keep going back to kiddie movies just so he can make a few extra dollars, because he sucks at it! The CGI in his kiddie movies looks like bad Photoshop that was thrown together over the weekend. He should stick with what he does best: Hard R-rated, action flicks!

This has been around for too long and has become a bad franchise, even for kids.

Except for the first two, which were critically acclaimed.

Oops, you beat me to what I was going to post. I just watched "Machete", and while it's far from being a perfect movie, it is tons of fun! That is what Rodriguez should be doing more of, not this kiddie ca-ca. I know Vits hates the sfx from "Ghostbusters", but those sfx look like stuff out of "Avatar" compared to what Robert put in this franchise and his other kid-friendly movies like "Shark Boy and Lava Girl" and "Short". *Cringes*

So Mayhem5185 doesn't want Robert Rodriguez to make anymore kids-under-13 movies? I daresay you speak for everyone here. You know what we should do? We should sanction him! The sanction would decree that all the rest of his films be aimed at age 13+ audiences. Sin City is his best example; it was the 39th of my 40 Best Films of 2005. That very spring, unfortunately, he released The Adventures of Shark Boy and Lava Girl in 3D

Also, I must ask, HeadRAZZBerry: Why didn't Shark & Lava get a forum here?  


RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: SHARK BOY & LAVA GIRL was long enough ago that I don't think we had started doing weekly Forum discussions yet. 

FUN FOOTNOTE: Guess who played Shark Boy (PHOTO LINK)?   HINT: He now plays a shirtless werewolf in Forum Member Miguel's favorite movie franchise, for which he's been a RAZZIE® nominee twice....so far.

In honor of "Spy Kids 4" (*cringes*), here's an article about bad CGI in mainstream movies that you would expect from much lower budgeted movies. Proving once and for all, sometimes you're better off with a costumed stuntman, a remote controlled puppet, a small scale model, or a mat painting, because they are often cheaper anyway, and look more convincing than rushed CG.
