Like so many of its ilk, Spies In Disguise is far more sophisticated than it needs to be and yet totally disposable. In decades to come, these movies will presumably be as forgotten as the spy spoofs of the 1960s, championed by no one except the Quentin Tarantinos of tomorrow.

It might be a little intense for the very-young, but I reckon this one's got its heart and soul in exactly the right place.

…impressive visuals, high-octane action, humour, and strong performances from the voice cast…

Call it The Spy Who Doved Me: a body swap comedy pushed to unusually daft extremes, even by the standards of the form.

I felt that the script stays on the safe side, with fewer smart lines and ironic gags than I might have wished for, but this is a good-natured entertainment.

Holland and Smith make for an appealing duo (one is nervous and eager, the other is confident and cynical), while the rest of the characters are fairly well fleshed out.

The idea of Will Smith bringing his incredulous smoothness to a kiddie cartoon is endlessly appealing, but "Spies in Disguise" turns out to be a crushingly formulaic, animated-by-numbers comedy...

Antic and frantic, Spies is very much a one-joke affair, which is fine for a short but woefully insufficient for a 101-minute feature.

The result is entertaining while it lasts, but won't lodge itself permanently in your memory bank.
