Movie Review – Spies in Disguise

Movie Review - Spies in DisguiseThe 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.
