Action/Family: A young brother and sister find out their stepmother is actually a spy tasked with saving the world.
Rebecca (ROWAN BLANCHARD) and Cecil (MASON COOK) don't think much of their stepmother, Marissa (JESSICA ALBA), an interior decorator who married their dad, Wilbur (JOEL McHALE), a couple of years earlier. Rebecca has always been especially hostile towards the new wife, even playing practical jokes on her.

Little do they know that Marissa is actually a retired spy for the OSS. Her former boss, Danger (JEREMY PIVEN), drafts her back into service to stop a nefarious plot to speed up time and possibly bring about the end of the world. Marissa does her best to keep her job a secret.

Soon, though, Rebecca and Cecil are joining in the mission along with their wise-cracking robotic dog, Argonaut (voice of RICKY GERVAIS). Together, they learn that corruption goes all the way up to the highest levels of the OSS. When it's hard to trust anyone, Marissa drafts the two former agents she knows she can count on, former Spy Kids Carmen (ALEXA VEGA) and Juni Cortez (DARYL SABARA).

Yes, the film is geared much more towards kids than adults and is getting heavy promotional play on Nickelodeon and the Cartoon Network. It appeals equally to young boys and girls.
For mild action and rude humor.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
