Goofs

At the end of the movie, when Dinky Winks waves his branding iron at the camera, it spells D-I-N-K-Y. This means that his name would end up branded onto the robot backwards--if it's even possible to brand a robot, of course. See more »

Quotes

Juni: Agua, as in water. Cute. But I wasn't here for cute. I was here 'cause I'd gotten a call for my regular fee. $4.99. I'm an ex-secret agent. My name is Juni Cortez. And I'm a private detective. A P.I. A private eye. A gumshoe.

Alternate Versions

The theatrical version of the movie contained some animatics made by Troublemaker Animation staff, in particular in the Pogoland scene. This was due to the fact that the animation companies Troublemaker shipped the film off to couldn't finish the animation in time. The animation was finished for the DVD release of the film, which is why some scenes look a bit different. See more »

irredeemably stupid
28 August 2004 | by cheroldSee all my reviews

What a mess. There are clever ideas here and there, a few laughs, the occasional decent special effect (I saw this on TV so didn't see it in 3D, which perhaps would have made the generally disappointing effects more impressive), but the lame, tossed-together script and the lack of any cohesion to the final product make this only barely watchable. This movie seems to just be going through the motions; you can't even call it formulaic because it barely attempts to even stick with any formula, it's more like random stuff thrown in here and there. As for the ending, well, it's main purpose was to create an excuse (and not a very good one) to have cameos by everyone who was in the first two movies (allowing them to list Bandaras first in the credits even though he's on screen for only a couple of minutes), and the final showdown is so utterly moronic that words fail me.

At the same time, I didn't actually hate it. I wasn't in pain watching it. It was a mindless Saturday afternoon movie and I watched it as mindlessly as I could and occasionally enjoyed it. But after the very fun second movie (which I thought superior to the first), this was a great disappointment. I'd advise skipping it.
