My thoughts:
My kids have loved the Spy Kid series for several years so there was no doubt that this game would be a hit with them.  We haven't seen the movie so I'm not sure how closely it ties in but do know it was a fun play for the boys.  I didn't play it myself but watched my 7 year old gamer play for some time.  It seemed to be just the right amount of challenge for him as he played with his tongue sticking out the side of his mouth, a la Micheal Jordan, in concentration but did not get upset with not being able to do things.  It kept his attention for a long time and has been a game he has gone back to play regularly.  For the price of 19.99, I think it deserves 3 thumbs up (what? I'm borrowing a thumb) for any Spy Kid fan in your house!
