I was sort of roped into rewatching the original Spy Kids recently (I didn't intend to watch it but my family turned it on in the main room and I ended up watching it). To my astonishment, it is a genuinely good movie. I think you should watch it and so I'll try to spoiler the review.

Of course, I have criticisms, so I'll start with those:

And now the praise:

And while the ending of the movie where the entire family crowds around the camera and Carmen directly preaches the moral of the story to the audience is stupid, you gotta give it some slack for being a kids' movie. At least the moral they chose to preach wasn't outright wrong.
