It did have few well known actors but it was bad. There are more important things to do then watch this movie. I say you skip it.

Washington Post
Visually undistinguished, narratively inert, populated by a cast of charmless child actors, "Sharkboy and Lavagirl," with any luck will fade quickly from theaters, memories and Rodriguez's own Things to Do Today list. Full Review
Carina Chocano
Los Angeles Times
On the whole it feels genuine. Lautner and Dooley are compelling as the sullen, instinctual Sharkboy and the radiant, hot-headed Lavagirl, and it's easy to see why they dominate shy, hesitant Max's dreams. Full Review
Desson Thomson
Washington Post
The result is astoundingly boring and, frankly, tedious to sit through. Full Review
Joe Leydon
There's little chance of grabbing teens (or even many tweens) during summertime playdates. Still, small fry will be enchanted by this rambunctious action-adventure. Full Review
Lawrence Van Gelder
The New York Times
Mr. Rodriguez seems unsure what his film is really about, making the moral of the story -- "dream an unselfish dream" -- feel more like a vaguely judgmental homily than a satisfying conclusion. Full Review
