Fun, family appropriate movie

My girls are 6 and 8 and enjoyed the movie a LOT! They thought the boys were cute (sorry, Daddy) and liked the excitement in it. They enjoyed seeing the two girls from the Disney Channel, who were darling as usual. There is enough "sci fi" and robot/spy stuff that young boys would like it, too. Nothing in appropriate. A good choice for a night at home on Netflix. And yes, there are some teaching points in it if you like to pause and talk like we do, regarding lying, bullying, how to be a good friend, etc.
