Oh, how I wish that header were true.

I don't even know why I'm writing this up. Mainly because it's a slow-ass news day and people are probably getting sick of the 76 different X-Men trailers. I don't have kids, don't want kids, don't even particularly like kids. I dig the occasional Pixar flick, or anything done by Brad Bird, but otherwise, I'm pretty sure that kids movies are not meant for me. I damn sure won't see a kids movie in the theater, mainly due to, well, see the aforementioned dislike of the little humanoid vermin. I saw the first Spy Kids movie, and I think I remember kind of enjoying it, but I might have been drunk.

But I sort of respect Robert Rodriguez's efforts with the Spy Kids franchise -- he wants to do something for the little ones, something that isn't just gunfights and sprays of blood. And I appreciate that he's likely single-handedly keeping Latino actors in work. So I guess I've got nothing against that. It's just that, well, they look so bread and circus-y, you know? But what the hell do I know.

Anyway, here's the trailer for the fourth (!) entry in the franchise, Spy Kids 4: All The Time In The World. It looks very similar to the prior ones, only with a talking dog and Jessica Alba. The cast is otherwise pretty aces -- Joel McHale, Danny Trejo, Antonio Banderas, a few other ones, including the original Spy Kids, Alexa Vega and Daryl Sabara. Compared to 90% of the other kiddie fare out there, it's practically brilliant, but that's scant praise. I dunno. Parents, people who are more qualified to judge (translation: everyone), whaddaya think?
