On the surface, Marissa Cortez Wilson (Jessica Alba) seems to have it all. She's married to famous, spy-hunting TV reporter Wilbur (Joel McHale) and has a new baby and a pair of bright, competitive stepchildren.
But Rebecca (Rowan Blanchard) and Cecil (Mason Cook) make it clear they don't want her around, and Wilbur wouldn't know a spy if he was living with one. In fact, that's exactly what he is doing.
But retired spy Marissa's life of domesticity comes to an abrupt end when she's recalled by the OSS, home of the now-defunct Spy Kids division, after the maniacal Timekeeper (Jeremy Piven) unleashes a plot to take over the planet by stopping time.
Resourceful Rebecca and Cecil find themselves drawn into the deadly mission, assisted by a pair of familiar spy kids: Carmen (Alexa Vega) and Juni (Daryl Sabara). But can the squabbling siblings prevent Armageddon and reunite their troubled family?
You should see it because: It's got all the action and adventure that made the first three films so popular - plus Ricky Gervais as the voice of a robot dog!
