OK, I have to know: Did anyone go (i.e. take your kids) to “Spy Kids 4” this weekend? I ask because this movie, which did not screen in advance for reviewers, is being released in so-called “Aromascope,” which means that along with your ticket you get a scratch-and-sniff card with eight different aromas on then, which you then scratch when prompted by the movie. The New York Times’ former perfume critic (now how good a job would that be?) attended a screening this weekend, and found that some of the smells “don’t smell like anything,” some were “terrible,” and that one — which I won’t identify just in case you’re trying to eat right now — “smells like something, but it has absolutely nothing to do with anything.” There you have it. Anyone else want to weigh in on this olfactory experience?
