The movie was not able to make a good impact on the audience. The critics did not appreciate the film. However, Ricky Gervais gained appraisal by the critics for his performance.
Ricky Gervais acquired appraisal by the critics for his performance. He did remarkable justice to his character. His acting and dialogue execution were commendable. Other than that, critics appraised only few moments of the movie. The acting of other actors was not much praised. However, they tried their best to lift up the film to a set standard. Alexa Vega and Daryl Sabara were present in the earlier films of the Spy Kids, and their acting was up to the benchmark.
