Do little kids know what a PDA is? Because in G-Force, Disney's 3D dud about a team of high-tech guinea pig spies, the fate of the world hinges on who gets control of a file downloaded onto a personal digital assistant.
Then again, do little kids know what a good movie is?
Just about the only folks likely to find this humdrum hybrid of Mission: Impossible and The Wind in the Willows worthy for consideration are non-discriminating pip-squeaks happy to watch rodents rappelling walls and scampering along air ducts as the clock ticks and computer keyboards clack.
Produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, G-Force is thrumming with action - it's an inane perpetual-motion machine of car chases (and motorized exercise ball chases), projectile kitchen appliances, and, yes, a towering Transformers-like robot run amok. Good thing the 9-inch-tall furball action heroes are actually computer-animated. Real rodents wouldn't have lasted through the opening minutes. (Grown-ups in the audience may not either.)
