Objectively SB&LG is a crazy movie but I still love it! It’s probably just childhood nostalgia giving me warm fuzzy feelings, but I still find it genuinely entertaining.

Maybe I'm just more easily entertained than other 2000's kids, but I have always loved Spy Kids 1-3 and Sharkboy and Lavagirl. I grew up with those movies and while I acknowledge they're not always the best quality, and that the cgi was crap, I still love those movies.

I really liked sharkboy and lavagirl when it came out, the parents fighting fit with my life at the time and the idea of dreams coming to life was a great idea to my adolescent mind. Now that I’m older I recognize the faults and yeah its dumb, but I like the nostalgia factor I get from watching it and remembering the simpler time in my life.

I was 11 when this movie came out, so I had ridden the Spy Kids hype-train from the first film. I was all about that shit. I remember loving Sharkboy and Lavagirl, and especially loving the idea that you could just make stuff up and that's how movies got made. This movie, in conjunction with Spy Kids 3, sparked that first creative process in me, made me realize that stuff was made by people, not just gifts from the ether that happened into theaters and boxes.

Now that being said, I'm not even a little nostalgia blind for this movie. Fuck this movie. It's bad -- awful, in fact. And while your review was funny, it was really hard to sit through because oh my god, what a massive, cringey load the movie is. Like, I don't understand how people my age get any kind of enjoyment out of going back to movies like this, or the Star Wars prequels, for that matter. There's that whole "millennials are ruining the world" thing, and my bit for when that comes up in my life is, "Please direct all your vitriol to the Lucas and Rodriguez Apologists."

I have so much nostalgia attachment to this movie! its so bad but i loved the “dreams coming to life” when i was younger! It felt like a power fantasy for day dreamers. Its such a cringe-fest watching it now though XP
Jeremiah Noar
Jeremiah Noar - 2 years ago
Yeah it's not a good movie, obviously, and I can't say that I'd put in in my dvd player today, but it's nostalgic at least to those born in between 95-98. So I'd have to be about 8 years old. It felt imaginative to my small naive 8 year old mind. But my love for shark boy and lava girl is purely nostalgic. It's as simple as the fact that my sisters and I've grown up with it.

I was one of the people that liked this film a LOT as a kid, very memorable. For me, its the case of growing up and realizing how God Awful both this AND Spy Kids 3D is. I'd argue Spy Kids 3D is much worse though.

Interesting thoughts. If you're at a loss for what Real Thoughts to do next, I'd like to see one of the fantasy movies (Sorcerer's Apprentice, Eragon, Dungeons and Dragons, etc). Fantasy is something that's so hard to do and I'd love to hear what you think works and doesn't in that genre. Thanks guys!

Eric Spearman

I think Game Over was originally supposed to be a completely different film, but since Spy Kids 1 and 2 (and I like both of them a lot) were money makers Dimension wanted another Spy Kids and so Rodriguez took the Game Over script and slapped Spy Kids on it. This would account for the absence of Alexa Vega for much of the movie and one of the reasons I did not think it was as good as the first two. It's the same situation that happened with Simon Says becoming Die Hard With a Vengeance and I love that film. Alexa and Daryl made the first two films with their chemistry as brother and sister and then Spy Kids 2 went and introduced us to Emily Osment who was so evilly cute. Oh, and Carla Gugino and Antonio Banderas were awesome! I still have a thing for Carla and I wish she got more work. Sharkboy and Lavagirl... No. Just no. Rodriguez's heart is in the right place, but just no.

For me, Sharkboy and Lavagirl (as sad as this might sound) was my childhood. I remember getting Max's dream journal from McDonald's when I was around 3 and watching the movie almost non-stop. In fact, I watched it so many times that I now know the whole movie by heart. I know every. Single. Line. Looking back on it, I honestly don't know why I enjoyed it so much.

i didn't see this movie the first time until i was in my early 20s. i put it on for my 3 year old and she loved it (at the time, shes 9 now and she cant stand when her little bothers and sisters watch it). and as bad as this movie is, it is in NO WAY even in the top 10 of worst movies my kids could like to watch. its stupid and the effects are something my kid made on my laptop for a school project. But at least it has some morals (sorta), none of the voices make my ears bleed (thank you caillou),w and the robots little saying is one of my fav quotes. trust me considering some of the shit i have had to sit through for the sake of my kids this is actually not the worst, bad yes most diffenitly. but the worst, not even close.

When I was a kid I was always kind of "eh" about, but then there were these two little kids I sort of babysat (I was 12, so it was more like I was in charge of them but I was also a child) who were like around 6 or 7 and they would play pretend at being Sharkboy and Lavagirl. So, I have fond memories of it, because of that alone.

I don't necessarily like it unironically, more like I like it in spite of myself. It's strange and absurd and surreal, but it has a lot of nostalgia attached to it for me, and some strange cleverness to its stupidity sometimes. It's just very fun and very strange, and that's what I love about it.

Spy Kids 4 sucks though. (yes, that's a thing, please do a review)

I never got too into the Spy Kids films, but those were what I watched at the theater when nothing else appealed to me. When Shark Boy and Lava Girl came out, I didn't even bother trying to watch it. It had the feel of a Disney Channel TV Movie from the trailers.
After watching it on Netflix, it really did seem like that. Silly plot, forced adult situation to try to act "smart", and low budget. All traits you'd see on Disney Channel back in the day.

This movie is the first time I remember having a crush on an actor instead of a cartoon character as a kid, so it was a big moment for me. And then I was the right age and obsessed with vampires when Twilight hit, so I had a second round of Taylor Lautner obsession. Basically, I have a soft spot for this movie, no matter how ridiculous it is (and it is very ridiculous).
Elizabeth Ruddick

I was too old for this movie when it came out but my little sister ADORED this movie (she first saw it when she was 4 or 5). I had to watch it probably a dozen times over the years because whenever she got to pick the movie, this was what she picked. Over time, I learned to appreciate it for what it was. The story is clunky and the effects are abysmal but it has a sort of charm to it and to see how much she loved it made it worth it for me. She’s a teenager now and realizes her horrible taste in movies at 4 years old (don’t we all?) but it still has a special place for her because it shaped her childhood so much.

Also, there was a Spy Kids 4 which was such a damn mess. I feel like 1 & 2 are still solid kids movies and 3 is bareable to me but goddamn...spy kids 4 is a bad movie, and they bring in the kids from the first three as adults and it's just a weird thing to watch. It's also the only Spy Kids movie I saw in-cinema

I was three when Sharkboy and Lavagirl came out but I have no idea when I actually watched it. It was my favourite movie until I was eleven, though. We had (actually we still have it) a vhs recording of the movie that I would consistently watch about once a month, and anytime it came on TV I was so frickin zazzed.

The review is one of my very favorite Nostalgia Critic reviews. It inspired me to write a critical essay on the film for class, and I got an A+ on it.
I didn't like the movie at all when I was younger, but now I see it as a good bad movie.

As far as my thoughts on Robert Rodriguez's Kids Movies go: I still think the 1st Spy Kids holds up okay, haven't seen the 2nd one in a long time but I remember liking it okay, Spy Kids 3-D was bad, Sharkboy and Lavagirl was bad but some of the weird choices really make me laugh so I can kind of enjoy those parts, Shorts really didn't like that movie at all, and I haven't seen Spy Kids 4 but I heard it was bad to I didn't bother watching it.

He got the role in the middle of his ABC sitcom run, George Lopez, which I love!!!! Have a special place in my heart for the Spy Kids trilogy.

You know what's weird?

As for this... I think a sharkboy and lavagirl platformer would do really well, just for the sole purpose of facing linus and george lopez's villain as a boss.

Also, it's awesome that Linus actually contacted you!

You know now that I look at this more, this had a lot of potential to be a really smart film. Showing the parallels in a world created by a child's mind and the problems in the real world, as they collide. Smart film that still delivers for kids. Sure ideas like it have been done before but could be executed much better.

The one reason I will always remember Sharkboy and Lavagirl because of one amazing error that happened during the screening.
During the climax of the movie, when Linus was explaining the reasons he was doing everything, the film reel melted and everything slowed down. It took around 20 minutes for them to fix everything. It was the first time I've ever seen it happen in person and I will not forget it.

I remember watching Sharkboy and Lavagirl several times and being fascinated by it. It's an offputting, ugly, pretty shallow movie, but it's also kinda fun in how nakedly indulgent it is. The gimmick is that the story came from his kid and it works because it legitimately sounds like a movie a kid would write if he had a semi-decent grasp of how writing works. There's a strange sorta logic to the movie. I also think some of the jokes actually work. It's an experiment, is all I'm saying.

I was in fifth grade when this movie came out, and I vaguely remember finding Max really annoying and the dream song really dumb. Even so, I was still super into it (I live every day in fear of finding the old drawings of my "super edgy anti-hero" versions, Darkboy and Shadowgirl. Shit you not).

Funnily enough my parents actually divorced a few years before this movie came out, so I guess I might've also felt connected to it more than a lot of other films that were out at the time. I always saw parents in them getting along or just having some light bickering, but this one had the one scene of arguing and then the whole hoping they would love each other still, and I just sort of clicked with that.

Now, the movie just kinda looks like a hot, steaming pile of CGI unicorn-colored garbage, but I mean, I think it has some cute ideas, and the whole parent "subplot" (hardly a subplot considering how little it's in the film) is a nice touch for a kid going through similar problems.

I don't even care about the plot wholes or that CG is awful. It just feels like a corner of madness and I rather enjoy that.

I've always liked Rodriquez's children's films, but I view them mostly as passionate funny camp entertainment rather than anything dramatic or complicated. They have lines like "CAN'T... FIGHT... MY INSTINCTS!!!" in them. They have weird scenes where children speak stoically and poetically about their problems. They have awkward villains and Xtreme angels and cartoonish backgrounds and Mexican men who deliver one-liners in cool, seductive voices.

I grew up with the movie and adored it, and like, yeah, it's dumb. Very much toddler junk food. But aside from enjoying how ridiculous Linus and George Lopez are, I do legitimately think it has creative IDEAS. Like how the Land of Milk and Cookies is designed, the way the dream world works, it has some really cool locations. Problem is the effects are so bad you don't see it right away and just focus on the terrible textures. Obviously the movie wasn't good, and it's better fit for little little kids, but ehhh I can't really hate it when it definitely had some creative ideas it wanted to get out.

I personally think the biggest problem with both SB&LG and Spy Kids 3 was that they came out at the start of the whole 3D craze and had those over the top, in your face, effects that where lame enough on their own, but with every single movie that came out trying to cash in on the same thing really killed any legitimacy a movie could have.

I grew up with the original Spy Kids trilogy (I disown the "fourth one"), so today they're like one big long guilty pleasure for me. Spy Kids 2 had some interesting ideas, at least (you're on an island and none of your electronics work, like you're used to, so you have to use your brain and wits. The creatures were pretty cool, too). Alexa Vega ("Girl Spy Kid") seemed to be drawn to stylized films (she was in Repo! The Genetic Opera, too).

i remember when this came out and i was already on the fence about spy kids 3 and thought maybe this was a cool idea, but i was at the age when i started to notice cgi and i didnt care that much, but still watched it cuz i kinda like the idea that he's taken to a place for dreams and whatever you think will happen, but the ending and plot did always bug me cuz i never understood if he was asleep, or if it was real, and even how he "awoke" his powers, that never made sense to me. But i say all that to say this, when its on tv....i watch it, cuz it reminds me of being a kid and it was a movie that i watched growing up, its not good, i know that, but its like anything that you watch when your a kid, you get older and you realize its not that good, but you have nostalgia for.

Good times! Haven't seen it in a while but it probably doesn't hold up now lol mostly love it for nostalgic reasons. As a kid, I didn't mind the cheap effects and cheesy storyline too much.

I liked the Spy Kids movies when I first saw them, but I think I was in the target demographic when I first saw them (I was 7 when the first Spy Kids came out). I didn't see Sharkboy and Lavagirl at cinemas, but later on a bus for a school trip I saw it and I remember thinking, "What the fuck is this shit?"

I think that's kind of the dynamic between Spy Kids and Sharkboy and Lavagirl--you have to have been in that very narrow target demographic to "get" them; especially when it comes to Sharkboy and Lavagirl. Otherwise you'll just be sitting there thinking they're garbage.

But this is something that I think is true of a lot of the kids movies that were coming out in the '00s. If you weren't in the target demographic, you probably wouldn't like Agent Cody Banks or Big Fat Liar or a lot of the other kids' movies coming out at the time.

The '90s commercial-level special effects would have annoyed you, along with all the stuff that was clearly in the movie to entertain kids. But if you were a kid at the time, you'd like it because you probably hadn't seen enough movies at that point to be bothered by the special effects or the plot.

The main problem with the spykidz/SBLG movies is that use live actors in conjunction with the bad CGI which only makes it look even worse by comparison. If Rodriquez had use animated characters it probably would have blended much better. Even maybe having live actors for parts that were set in the "real" world and then go full animated in the dream world and game world of SK3D would have improved viewers suspension of disbelief.

I really like the villain/bully with the cape. he was my favorite part. over all the movie is interesting but the biggest impact it had for me was when Jacob cut his hair in twilight I suddenly couldn't unsee sharkboy and was rooting for lavagirl to show up and steal him away XD

I haven't seen it in ages but I know it does have a plot and an actual good/ meaningful one at that (I mean it's still a crappy weird movie that I vaguely enjoyed as a kid but I distinctly remember hard pangs of 'feels'). Kind of really disappointed you guys didn't rewatch it before this video.


Linus was always my favorite though.

I used to love Shark Boy and Lava Girl. It was the first movie I ever watched in 3D when I was 6 or 7. I even had a Shark Boy and Lava Girl "club", where I was Lava Girl and my friend was Shark Boy. Now I like it half ironically half nostagically. It is super weird and fake to me now, but I didn't realize that as a kid. I can appreciate what it meant to me ask a kid, and it would probably be interesting to watch while high.

I was thinking about the why Disney Villains aren’t as memorable and you proved your point, and it got me thinking about that and it and realized that the villain from Kung Fu Panda was a villain from the start, he was more understandable than the average one but he was through and through, and from all the modern (specially cg ones) he generally comes first in memory

The Sharkboy and Lavagirl review was the first new Nostalgia Critic episode posted to the CA YouTube channel when the League channel started getting struck. By the time you left the League channel, Foodfight was your most popular review on that channel, and I think Sharkboy and Lavagirl ended up surpassing it

That movie was played to DEATH on Disney channel so yeah we grew up with it (the same late 90s early 2000's DCOM crowd). Basically that film and Spy Kids 3 were on a lot, but of the two this one was better.
There were always kinda cool aspects to it like a huge chocolate chip cookie as a boat? (I wished was real), the dynamic b/w Sharkboy and Lava Girl, even the over the top acting. But I think I still knew this movie wasn't good. The effects were so bad they weren't even charming like in Spy Kids 1&2 and the main character, along with the parent drama was pretty insufferable.

BEST TO WORST RODRIGUEZ KIDS FILMS
1. Spy Kids (still holds up)
2. Spy Kids 2
3. Sharkboy and Lava Girl
4. Spy Kids 3
5. Spy Kids 4 (mightve been directed by someone else? not sure)
6. Shorts! (To be honest, I never saw this one, avoided it like the black plague. Please review)

When I was a kid, around six or younger, I had Sharkboy and Lavagirl on DVD, in 3D (the little red and blue glasses were even shark boy and lava girl themed, respectively), specifically. I really loved the 3D in there, and remember watching it over and over again. Looking back on it, it's a weird ass movie. I could never say I hated it, but it's by no stretch of the imagination, good. I'll probably never watch it again, if only to preserve the memory, but it's probably telling of the film that a younger me was more attracted to the gimmick than the actual movie.

I grew up with this movie and I even owned it. I liked it when I was a kid and I have definitely loved other more stupid shit like supper baby’s when I was like 3. When I was a kid I did watch more things with a plot but shark boy and lava girl was something that I always thought it was a little weird. Now when I watch it I see how bad looking it is but I can’t help but still like it because I grew up with it. They also used to play it like everyday on TV so they practically shoved it down kids throats.

I wonder how Sharkboy and Lavagirl could have been better. One thing I know for sure is Robert Rodriguez needed other people to consult with and help flesh out and focus his ideas. It does help him a lot, plus it would be more fun as more people means more ideas.

I loved this from like age 4-7 and then I watched it again when I was like 13 and I realized just how convoluted and ridiculous it really was. I honestly think I liked it so much as a kid because I didn’t have the attention span or memory to remember anything that came before what I was watching at that very moment. Each scene amused me enough to distract me from how nonsensical the plot was which was enough to keep me quiet for an hour or two.

I also discovered that chocolate makes you fat, much to the dismay of many of my old belts

kids dont exactly need a movie to have practical effects to get sucked into it. when i was like 6 or 7 i watched an episode of the big comfy couch and was completely amazed at the shadow puppets they were doing. i tried for years trying to figure out how they positioned their hands to get such a realistic giraffe silhouette. bout 5 years later i saw a rerun of the episode and waited for the shadow puppet part because i was still curious... well, i felt like an absolute idiot afterwards because even though i was seeing only shadows, it was pretty sad how obvious it was that it was just an extremely cartoony paper cut out with popsicle sticks glued on the head and body so they could hold it up and move the head around :|

not saying there shouldnt be decent movies for kids, but imagination, innocents, and gullibility are all pretty powerful things

I did enjoy the first three Spy Kids movies and Sharkboy & Lavagirl... And I think I did watch Spy Kids 3 the most out of them. In hindsight I want to say it was the "video game" hook that kept me in, I liked the idea of progression through different levels, with a concrete idea that "Level 5 is so elusive" with the main characters slowly making their way through gradually more treacherous terrain. Sharkboy & Lavagirl I mostly remember enjoying due to its similarities in vibe and style to Spy Kids 3.

This movie changed my life. When me and my friends watched it as kids we loved it so much we made up our own superheroes and played an episodic game about the characters we created. Every time we played we said it was a new episode, and I distinctly remember getting into the thousands. The friends I played this game with are some of mt closest ever, and whenever we reminisce about it and how awesome we thought it was, we credit Sharkboy and Lavagirl for it's creation. It's one of those movies that I watch know and laugh at, but it had such a massive impact on my childhood I will always love it.

I loved Sharkboy and Lavagirl when I was young. I even had Sharkboy and Lavagirl styled 3D glasses (not sure when I lost them tho). But now I can see the many many many MANY flaws. Even still, I do enjoy it ironically.

It does seem confusing of how Sharkboy turns tan when his kid self was white, but the thing is that he was turning part shark so that means his whole body would be changing therefore he would look very different from his original self, plus there are brown sharks. Also, I did have an ongoing theory about Lavagirl. I think she might some sort of doppelganger of the ice girl, Max wants to be friends with her, but maybe wants her to be different so he imagines the opposite of her being cold to being hot and thus Lavagirl is born

I saw this in the cinema when I was a kid, & completely forgot about it until you guys reviewed it. & looking back it is a dumb movie but it's harmless. Hard to get angry at it, there's much worse material for children out there.
KC reviews
KC reviews - 2 years ago
Sharkboy and Lavagirl may be one of my favorite NC reviews. I remember Disney and all of it's channels were hyping up this movie like mad, and it looked awful! I never bothered seeing it, but because they promoted it so much, and i think my sister liked it for a bit, I knew who all the characters were (and how weird they looked) and most of the basic plot. So when the review came out, it was honestly so hilarious and cathartic for me.

And now I know the whole story and how bad it is, and I don't even have to watch the movie! Woo!

I was about 7 years old when this movie came out, and so many kids my age in elementary school were talking about it. I watched it a few times and I liked it fine, but then when I got a little older I really started to hate on it thinking how dumb it was and thought it was the worst movie ever. Now, as a 19-year-old, I see it in the way you guys think, it's incredibly stupid but it's harmless.

Honestly, I was little when I first saw this movie, and I loved it completely. To me, it made me feel for the characters, and become a bit emotional over them, and I just wished I could live in their world. Now I'm nearly 21, and I still can't help but love it, and watch it whenever I can. Is it bad? Honestly, I don't really think so, but that's just my opinion.

I can remember this film being just on the edge of that part of my life where I started to think 'wow this is really dumb' that said I remember almost all the film which is a good sign... On balance I think I still like it (it reminds me a lot of the sort of stories I would come up with when I was a kid and I honestly liked the weird origins the characters had)... That said I think even at the time I kind of realised that this was me liking bits of a bad movie rather than watching a good movie. Nowhere near a staple of my childhood but something I remember watching and enjoying even with its many, many, many (feel free to add additional 'many's into this space) faults

Honestly, I've always liked Sharkboy and Lavagirl. It was a fun superhero-ish movie for kids at the time, and I was around 10 when I saw it for the first time. And yes, I still like it unironically. Sorry Rob lol. There was always a draw for me with the theme of imagination being important and dreams being worth following. There was also a bit of a sense of the characters having to keep moving before that dark cloud thing caught up to them and that gave the movie a feeling of not being able to slow down too much, which I think worked to keep me invested. And hey, as far as I remember there are no fart jokes in it, so that's a bonus for me. I will admit that sometimes the movie feels really awkward, takes itself too seriously, or drags out its message a bit too much. But overall, I still find it fun to see every now and then.

Probably the coolest or strangest story to come from this movie is that a professional wrestler who goes by the name of Shark Boy had trademarked the name Shark Boy before this movie had come out. He ended up suing the studio that produced the movie and got an out of court settlement. It was an undisclosed amount but the rumor is the wrestler made out like a bandit.
