What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Spies in Disguise is an animated comedy about a super spy who gets turned into a pigeon. Suave, sophisticated Lance Sterling (voiced by Will Smith) is the world's greatest secret agent. He's assisted by Walter Beckett (Tom Holland), a nerdy, socially awkward scientist who creates the high-tech spy gadgets Lance uses on his missions. But when Walter accidentally turns Lance into a pigeon -- and can't undo it -- the two must work together to save the world. Rashida Jones, Karen Gillan, and DJ Khaled also join the voice cast. Expect lots of action, comedic pratfalls, and some rude humor and language, but ultimately this promises to be family friendly.
