Catch That Kid Movie Review
If you're looking for a movie filled with action, adventure, laughs and a touch of romance - you're looking for Catch That Kid from 20th Century Fox starring Kristen Stewart, Corbin Bleu and Jennifer Beals!
Catch That Kid Movie BasicsThe movie starts off giving you a funny and cool intro to each of the main culprits... err... characters. First there's Maddy (played by Kristen Stewart), who we see climbing a water tower like a pro rock climber - until she nearly falls to her death. Then there's Gus (played by Max Theiriot), who we see using his mechanical mojo to mess up his bully brother's go-cart. And last but not least, there is Austin (played by Corbin Bleu), who we see videotaping everything and anything at the go-cart track owned by Maddy's dad. These three are obviously good friends and they pull together once Maddy's dad's old climbing injury lands him in the hospital in need of a $250,000 operation.
Catch That Kid Movie CoolnessCatch That Kid is non-stop adventure. From the first scene to the last, there is no downtime in this flick. And, there isn't a lot of time wasted on back-story. You find out everything you need to know about Maddy, Gus and Austin as the story moves forward. Also, Catch That Kid is awesome because it really has a little bit of everything. There's non-stop adventure with the go-carts, the climbing, and the bank robbing (oh, yeah, there is some funky-cool bank action). But, there is also some great comedy, thanks mostly to Gus' bully brother Brad, and there is a lil' bit of romance. Gus and Austin both have it bad for Maddy, but it's kinda funny and very cute rather than all mushy and gross.
Catch That Kid DVD FeaturesThere aren't a ton of features on the Catch That Kid DVD but the ones that are included are pretty cool. You've got commentary from all three stars of the movie (Kristen Stewart, Corbin Bleu and Max Theiriot). The three action-flick heroes just say what their feeling and it really makes you feel like you're chillin' with them in your living room. Next, you get to check out a new short animated movie called Gone Nutty, starring that cute little squirrel from Ice Age. And if that isn't enough to satisfy your craving for DVD extras, there are also a bunch of deleted scenes to flip through.
Catch That Kid: The Bottom LineThis flick is perfect if you're looking for a date flick for Valentine's Day. It's got enough action to impress a guy, enough romance to impress a girl and enough comedy to keep you both laughing 'til the end! And, if you don't have a date, go with a bunch of friends - it's a guaranteed good time!
