don't laugh. i really did go see this. what can i say? i'm a sucker for 16 year olds. sadly the ratio of retards in that theatre to actual 16 year olds was excessively weighted.
this movie. i don't know what it is about frankie muniz. but i think the problem could be that he's not aging well. i mean, on malcom in the middle, he was cute, right? but now he looks like they're plastering him with orangish tan matte purifying makeup and he looks kind of dirty and....bad most of the time. this could be in some small part due to the fact that he is constantly actually getting dirty while doing spy activities in this movie. and beaten up. but still.
they had lots of absurd gadgets. not as many as spy kids. but there were these stand up scooters things that everyone in the CIA rolled around on at the headquarters. adults, mind you. it was like saying, "children become CIA agents at this training summer camp in order to grow up and be CIA agents so they can remain children and play with toys." valuable lesson learned about the state of our secret society of protectors. good job, guys.
hillary duff sucks. apparently she also sings though. cause there was this preview for this movie coming out soon with her and an italian boy and being a famous european pop singing duo. it looks incredibly dumb. i'll probably see it.
this was amusing. and not half bad. watching the kid do martial arts was fun. and arnold vosloo the mummy in the BEST MOVIES OF ALL TIME, the mummy and the mummy returns, wandering around being evil in shiny, silver, velvet jogging suits was fun.Posted by michele at March 17, 2003 09:39 AM
