I suspect that readers of the Escape Studios Blog will not be the type to rush out to the big screens to see Spy Kids 4D. Or at least admit to it...
Having the excuse of being a dad, I went to see it during the school holidays. I was under the impression it was the 4th film, I missed the '4D' part. And yes, of course we were each given a scratch-and-sniff card and assured that this experience was amazing. There were eight scratch-and-sniff scents on the Aroma-Scope card. How exciting!
To my surprise it was amazing!
My two children and I didn't stop laughing all the way through the film, nor did the other four people in the cinema. Sadly, we were just laughing at the scratch-and-sniff cards. Each of the eight scents did smell... but exactly the same and of nothing related to what was on screen. It's a bit rubbish but hey, you have to have take the fun where you can!
We clearly weren’t the only ones who had this experience!
As for the film itself, no comment...
If anyone else wants to admit they went to see Spy Kids, please tell me your Aroma-Scope card worked!
