The Adventures of Shark Boy and Lava Girl in 3-D
Director Robert Rodriquez continues in the vein of his “Spy Kids” films with another visually frenetic kiddie crowd-pleaser that will leave adult chaperons exiting the cinema nursing headaches. Young Max (Cayden Boyd) is a lonely 10-year-old boy who seeks solace from the outside world via his fertile imagination. Max’s dream life takes him to Planet Drool where he joins up with Shark Boy (Taylor Lautner) and Lava Girl (Taylor Dooley) to do battle with the evil Mr. Electric (George Lopez) and his sidekick Minus (Jacob Davich) amid their candy colored surroundings filled with gadgets and wacky devices.
