Trivia

This was Ricardo Montalban's first film since The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad! (1988). He only appeared in television, but not movies during those years. See more »

Goofs

When Gary and Gerti "bounce" onto the island and Gary says "I'm gonna zap that sucker to bits!", he hits his watch. It makes an electronic beeping sound, although it was stated that electronics don't work on the island. The watch would have needed electricity to make those noises. See more »

Crazy Credits

The ending credits scroll while Carmen and Juni are somehow set to perform before a crowd of teenagers. Carmen is nervous but their Uncle 'Machete' gives them gadgets so they can perform well in front of the crowd. Then the bloopers and goofing around sequences come in, followed by a sequence where the amusement park owner (Bill Paxton) tries to talk Romero (Steve Buscemi) into establishing a theme park on the island. Finally, the Treehouse is shown getting ready for visitors. See more »

Forgiving the computer graphics, quite entertaining actually.
20 July 2003 | by derickallenSee all my reviews

I was at first hesistant to watch this movie for one thing: it's a kiddy movie. I generally dislike kiddie movies not because I might have completey lost the kid in me. My younger sister asked me to buy her the SPY KIDS 2 video CD for her birthday. Before sending her the VCD, I decided to have a peek of what it was like.

Well, it was quite entertaining! I must forgive the computer graphics, they were aweful and really felt fake. The characters appear to be against a huge blue screen most of the time, even without my conscious effort of thinking about it. But then again, kids are the general audience of this film who are not likely to mind the CGI involved anyway. They were in fact colorful and funny, more than enough to satisfy them throughout the show.

The set was rather decent and as one movie critic said, it won't make your kids stupider at the end of the show. However, the acting was suboptimal and needs a little more polishing and reshots I guess. In summary, a generally enjoyable summer popcorn film, especially for kids and adults alike. :)
