Have you heard about Spies in Disguise? I attended an advance screening for the press. A couple of days later I interviewed Spies in Disguise directors, Troy Quane and Nick Bruno. Then followed that up with a family outing to an advance screening of Spies in Disguise. I gave away tickets, I hope you joined us.
Spies in Disguise Movie Review
I freaking loved it! I enjoyed everything about this movie. I’ve been thumping the soundtrack on Tidal since Friday. It is a bop! The kids and I know the words to the songs already. This movie is for everyone of all ages, my teenager enjoyed it as did my husband and daughter. First off it is hard to impress a teenager so there is that. Secondly, you laugh a lot but the storyline makes you feel empowered and celebrated. If you have ever been called weird or felt like you didn’t fit in this movie is for you.

About Spies In Disguise
Super spy Lance Sterling and scientist Walter Beckett are almost exact opposites. Lance is smooth, suave and debonair. Walter is not. But what Walter lacks in social skills he makes up for in smarts and invention, creating the awesome gadgets Lance uses on his epic missions. But when events take an unexpected turn, Walter and Lance suddenly have to rely on each other in a whole new way. And if this odd couple can’t learn to work as a team, the whole world is in peril.
