Synopsis: Carmen and Juni are key agents in the agency's new "Spy Kids" division, but a misunderstanding gets Juni suspended.

Reaction: The story is a bit more straight-forward, but the sibling arguments are less prominent. All in all, this is a more cohesive movie than the other two in the series.
