Spy Kids

Synopsis: Gregorio and Ingrid are the two greatest secret agents the world has ever known: masters of disguise, mavens of invention, able to stop wars before they even start. Working for separate countries, they are sent to eliminate their most dangerous enemy...each other. But in an exotic corner of the world when they finally come face to face, they fall in love instead and embark on the most dangerous mission they have ever faced: raising a family. Now nine years later, after their retirement, having exchanged the adventure of espionage for parenthood, Gregorio and Ingrid Cortez are called back in to action. When their former colleagues, the world's most formidable spies, start disappearing one by one, the Cortez's are forced to take on techno-wizard Fegan Floop and his evil, egg-headed sidekick, Minion. But when the unthinkable happens and they too disappear, unfortunately there are only two people in the world who can rescue them...their kids.

I said they were better off.

Great story, Mom,

but it needs a new ending.

It needs monsters.

Is that right?

Do you want me to look at your--

I put the medicine on.

OK, munchkin. Good night.

What was the story tonight?

Mmm. Ours.

How many nights, I wonder...

do you send the children

off to bed with nightmares?

Carmen asked for the story.

That life is over now.

We are consultants, not spies.

[Electronic beeping]

So I went

to their school today.


Had that meeting

with the principal.


Carmen's been skipping school

twice a month.

- Why?

- I don't know.

And those school friends

Juni talks about having?


Diego somebody and Renaldo?

No such beasts.

It turns out,

the other kids pick on him.

He has no friends.

It doesn't help that he has

his head in the clouds...

making these weird drawings...

and burying himself

into that demented kids show.


They're keeping secrets

from us, Gregorio...

and I think it's our fault.

They've gotten this from us.

We have good reason

to keep secrets.

If we told them we were spies...

they'd have visions of danger

every time we leave the house.

Speaking of secrets...

what are you working on

over here?

Oh, nothing important.

It's just...

Why do we have

to do this every morning?

We already have P.E. at school.


You gonna hang there all day,

scaredy cat?

Told you not to look down.

I can't help it. I'm slipping.

It's your butterfingers

that are slipping.

Uhh! Hurry up!

I can--uhh!

- Uhh!

- Whoa! Uhh!


You just fell a thousand feet.

You're a pancake.

- Am not.

- Are too.

Don't trip getting up, pancake.



We'll see about that.
