Those who aren't part of the 10- to 13-year-old target audience will probably also find it witless and derivative.

Mick LaSalle
San Francisco Chronicle

I like Hillary Duff. But this movie was not that good.
Matt Goodman
I loved this in my younger days, it served as an appropriate "James Bond" for tweens. That's all it really has though.
KJ Proulx
