One of the gold items Carmen picks and tosses away in the treasure chamber is the small gold idol from the movie Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981). See more »
When Juni is getting ready for the party he gets help tying his bow tie. in the next shot you can clearly see the hook on the side of his "one size fits all" bow tie. See more »
Okay, Mom, if you want information, just go straight to the source.
[she taps some keys and "Welcome to the Pentagon" appears]
How did you do that? You can't - You cannot do that. There is no hacking in this household!

A worthy sequel - great fun for adults and kids alike
After reading some of these user reviews (especially the one about the Latino vs. White.... you have to be kidding me), I felt compelled to write one of my own. Spy Kids 2 had everything I expected - a whole new adventure with characters from first that is fun, exciting, humorous, and still manages to teach about doing the right thing. I also appreciated the references to the original ^_^ , and the special effects were even better than the first.
The hardest people to please in this case would be my 2 daughters (4 & 7) who own the first Spy Kids on DVD and have seen it so many times they can act out the scenes down to the facial expressions and body motions. When they saw Spy Kids 2 this past weekend they were transfixed and left the theater excited about seeing Carmen and Juni in their latest adventure.
A great movie for adults and kids... I cannot recommend this sequel highly enough!
