They are specialists in their fields: a rock climber, a computer genius, a mechanical whiz. Their task: to rob one of the world's most impenetrable banks to save an ailing father. Their plan is foolproof; their methods are ingenious. And they're not old enough to drive. Meet Maddy, Gus, and Austin: three kids on a mission without permission.
Action Adventure Comedy - This isn't a big budget, effects laden kids movie. It's about what
you'd expect to see on a Saturday afternoon on the Disney channel.
This is in no way a negative review because "Catch that Kid" is
very good for what it is. Just don't go expecting something similar
to "Spy Kids."
PROFANITY: The A-word once and suck three times. SEX/NUDITY: None VIOLENCE: None DRUGS/ALCOHOL: None ACTION: A little slow at first, then lots of fun action. COMEDY: Not much humor. A half dozen smiles and chuckles is it.

Roger EbertFull Review Good Faithful readers know that my definition of a good family film is one the parents can enjoy, and you know what? In the middle of the heist scene, we're just about as involved as if the movie starred George Clooney and Julia Roberts.
USA TodayFull Review Poor Catch That Kid is so miserable that the multiplex's rival youth heist pic The Perfect Score is looking much better this week.

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
We collected 70 moviegoer opinions. This is obviously a kids/young teens movie and they loved it. Adult opinions were quite mixed. A little better than half enjoyed it very much. Most of the remaining ones thought it was an OK movie. Only a few actually didn't care for it.
If you've got older kids/young teens, I recommend "Catch That Kid" as a good family outing, especially at matinee prices. It's as "adult friendly" as most kids movies. If you don't catch it at theaters, it will make a great rental for the whole family.
