Marissa Cortez Wilson has it all but in reality, trying to mother her twin step kids is a real challenge. They don't want to be around her. She also has a new baby to raise with her new husband, that is why she is a retired secret agent.
Action Adventure Comedy - Like the previous 3 films in the series, this is an action-adventure aimed at kids and the whole family. The addition of scratch and sniff cards adds to the kid appeal. Fans of the series may be disappointed that original stars Antonio Banderas and Carla Gugino do not appear this time.
OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 63 moviegoers:
CHILDREN:They nearly all LOVED SPY KIDS!
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:The one female rated it average.
ADULTS:These are very good reviews from parents, for this kids movie, but not great reviews. Most enjoyed it very much with many loving it. This is a great family movie that the kids will love and parents will also enjoy.
On the surface, Marissa Cortez Wilson (Jessica Alba) has it all...married to
a famous spy hunting television reporter, a new baby and intelligent twin step
kids. But in reality, trying to mother Rebecca (Rowan Blanchard) and Cecil
(Mason Cook), who clearly don't want her around, is her toughest challenge yet.
Also, her husband, Wilbur (Joel McHale), wouldn't know a spy if he lived with
one which is exactly the case - Marissa's a retired secret agent.
Marissa's world is turned upside down when the maniacal Timekeeper (Jeremy Piven)
threatens to take over the planet and she's called back into action by the head
of OSS, home of the greatest spies and where the now-defunct Spy Kids division
was created. With Armageddon quickly approaching, Rebecca and Cecil are thrust
into action when they learn their boring stepmom was once a top agent and now
the world's most competitive ten year olds are forced to put their bickering
aside and rely on their wits. With a little help from a couple of very familiar
Spy Kids, Carmen (Alexa Vega) and Juni Cortez (Daryl Sabara), and some
mind-blowing gadgets, they just may be able to save the world and possibly bring
their family together while they're at it.
