Made with technology similar to that of "Spy Kids", Shark Boy and Lava girl was directed by Robert Rodriguez. Sharkboy and Lava girl stars Taylor Lautner, Taylor Dooley, Cayden Boyd, David Arquette, Kristin Davis and George Lopez. Cayden Boyd plays Max a lonely child who in an attempt to amuse himself creates an imaginary place called Plant Drool. He then creates two main characters Sharkboy (Taylor Lautner) and Lava Girl (Taylor Dooley). He decides that Sharkboy’s parents were killed at sea so he was raised by sharks and that Lavagirl can produce fire and lava but cannot touch anything without setting them on fire. In his fantasyland, Sharkboy and Lavagirl are tasked to protect Planet Drool from danger. Meanwhile in real life, Max’s parents are too busy for him and he is being bullied at school by a boy named Linus. The only person friendly to him is Marissa (Sasha Pieterse) the daughter of Mr. Electricidad(George Lopez). Max is later transported to planet Drool after a tornado hits and Sharkboy and Lavagirl appear to ask for his help. Together, the three of them must save plant Drool by using some of Max’s daydreams. Throughout their journey the evil Mr. Electric and his plughounds chase them in an attempt to keep them from obtaining a crystal heart from the Ice Princess. They eventually make it to the castle and receive the heart but not in time to use it. Mr. Electric tries to kill Shark Boy and Lava Girl but is unsuccessful after Max uses daydreams to save them. Furious at this, Mr. Electric decides to kill Max while he is dreaming. He materializes in front of Max in his classroom but is stopped by Marissa who was given the crystal heart. Meanwhile, Max’s parents become caught in the storm and are shocked as they realize how little time they have spent with Max. They are saved by Sharkboy and Lava Girl and promise to be there for Max rather than spend all their time working.
