Spy Kids

Rated 4.0

This sort of Junior James Bond in Toyland stars Antonio Banderas and Carla Gugino as two superspies who trade espionage for parenthood. The couple is kidnapped by a kiddy show host (Alan Cumming) who wants to use research secrets to mentally activate an army of child robots. The Cortez kids (Alexa Vega and Daryl Sabara) use an arsenal of high-tech gadgetry and vehicles to rescue their folks from the evil techno-wizard. The message here: it’s easy to be a spy, but tough to keep a family together.
