In "Spy Kids 2," the well-respected kid-spies Carmen Cortez (Alexa Vega) and her younger brother Juni (Daryl Sabara) find themselves challenged by a pair of uppity blond rivals: Gary Giggles (Matt O'Leary) and his little wiseacre sister Gerti (Emily Osment). Their father, Donnagon (Mike Judge, creator of "Beavis and Butt-head" and "King of the Hill"), has somehow been named the head of the supersecret spy organization they all work for, a post that Carmen and Juni's dad, Gregorio (Antonio Banderas), had hoped to get.
Something about the appointment doesn't seem right, and when Carmen and Juni unfairly lose a plum assignment to Gary and Gerti, they engage in a bit of hacking so that they can investigate what's going on. Their adventure takes them to a mysterious island. When Gregorio and their mother, Ingrid (Carla Gugino), lose the ability to track the kids' whereabouts, they set out to rescue them -- with Ingrid's mom and dad (Holland Taylor and Ricardo Montalban) in tow.
