Director Robert Rodriguez brings the fourth dimension: AromaScope (aka scratch & sniff cards) to this, the fourth entry in his family action-adventure series.

The big gimmick here is the scratch-and-sniff cards that are handed out at every screening. There are eight numbered sections and each time the corresponding number appears on the screen, you’re supposed to activate them. Only problem is – it doesn’t work. The best I got was a faintly bubblegummy whiff of cardboard. I had wondered if I’d received a dud, but by the sounds of others in the audience, they all had too.

Between its lame slapstick and bevy of odors this Spy Kids manages to both figuratively and literally stink.

A passable shake-up, even if its ‘Aroma-scope’ experiment stinks.

Limps into its fourth installment with shiny CGI and frequent fart jokes to hold the attention spans of the underage and undemanding.

Visually dreary (don’t bother paying the 3-D premium), lazily yet confusingly plotted, dominated by jokes involving vomit and an endlessly flatulent baby, All the Time in the World feels more like straight-to-DVD filler.

It's much inferior to the earlier films, though kids will probably like it.

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.

Pointless trying to make sense of its cretinous plotting, but perhaps savour the irony of a film about stolen time that robs 89 precious minutes of your own.
