Robert Rodriguez’ Spy Kids: All the Time in the World may be so stupid that it’s brilliant. There’s a talking dog voiced by Ricky Gervais. Jeremy Piven’s hair is inexplicable. The jokes are lame. The kids don’t seem like they can act. I don’t think there’s a single set that isn’t CG. But the masterstroke is “Aroma-Scope” which makes the 3D film “4D”. We’ve already explained how “Aroma-Scope” works but seeing it in this trailer makes it look even dumber than previously imagined. I wonder if you’ll use it when the kid’s bag of vomit hits a bad guy in the face.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The film stars Jessica Alba, Alex Vega, Daryl Sabara, and Joel McHale. Spy Kids: All the Time in the World opens August 19th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Spy Kids: All the Time in the World:
On the surface, Marissa Cortez Wilson (Jessica Alba) has it all…married to a famous spy hunting television reporter, a new baby and intelligent twin step kids. But in reality, trying to mother Rebecca (Rowan Blanchard) and Cecil (Mason Cook), who clearly don’t want her around, is her toughest challenge yet. Also, her husband, Wilbur (Joel McHale), wouldn’t know a spy if he lived with one which is exactly the case – Marissa’s a retired secret agent.
Marissa’s world is turned upside down when the maniacal Timekeeper (Jeremy Piven) threatens to take over the planet and she’s called back into action by the head of OSS, home of the greatest spies and where the now-defunct Spy Kids division was created. With Armageddon quickly approaching, Rebecca and Cecil are thrust into action when they learn their boring stepmom was once a top agent and now the world’s most competitive ten year olds are forced to put their bickering aside and rely on their wits. With a little help from a couple of very familiar Spy Kids, Carmen (Alexa Vega) and Juni Cortez (Daryl Sabara), and some mind-blowing gadgets, they just may be able to save the world and possibly bring their family together while they’re at it.
