The messages Spies in Disguise delivers should resonate with parents. First, the young scientist/inventor is called “weird” by the kids at school. Throughout the movie that label is challenged, and turned into a compliment.
The second message the story emphasizes is nonviolent solutions to problems. The spy Lance Sterling solves problems with explosions. On the other hand, Walter solves problems with nonlethal doses of glitter. In the end Lance comes to trust Walter’s judgment.
There’s plenty of funny hijinks for kids to enjoy and some of the scenes are funny enough to make adults laugh out loud. While Spies in Disguise doesn’t have the broad ranging entertainment as most Pixar movies, it isn’t one of those movies mom and dad have to flip a coin over who has to take the kids. There’s enough here for everyone to enjoy.

Rated (PG) for action, violence, and rude humor

Creator and developer of the RunPee app. When something doesn’t work right in the app it’s pretty much his fault. 🙂
Aspiring author. Would like to finish his “Zombie Revelations” trilogy if he could break away for working on RunPee and the cottage he’s building for RunPee Mom.
