The history of genre movies is littered with massive, lavish failures — movies that took hundreds of millions of dollars and tossed the money down a sinkhole. But some of the movies that everybody "knows" were box office disasters actually did really well, when you look at the numbers.
Despite my elementary school diploma, I loved Spy Kids: All the Time in the World. Why? It's a chilling examination of an alternate reality in which children have become fellow travelers in global espionage, a parallel universe where Langley is run like Willy Wonka's candy-colored calorie mill.

The 4th addition to the Spy Kids franchise is trotting out smell-o-vision, as this totally insane trailer shows off. Now when a character says, "what's that smell?" you too can experience the putrid stench with your aromacard.
