Spies in Disguise is opening up 2020 at the theaters for the kids and kids at heart. This film is a must see by everybody, watch it best with your family. I couldn’t remember when was the last time I laughed so hard for a children’s flick. It is hilarious and one that tugged my heart, so much for the teeny tears that I had in my eyes both from the feels and laughter. Definitely a movie with a heart, not just pure fun and mischief.
As a parent, I’ve always knew that we are always the first supporters, cheerleaders and no. 1 fans of our children. It is us who would discover their capabilities and it us who will help them hone their skills. We are the ones pushing them when they think they can not do it and we know they can. We are their first believers. We are the ones who will build their self esteem. We are the ones who should make them feel secured and we are the one who will build their confidence. That they can do it. That they can make it. That one day they will be successful. That one day, they will change the world. Because if not, who will?
That is why I can totally relate with Spies in Disguise. I see myself as Little Walter’s mom, supporting him in all of that he is, in all of his weird ways. Throughout the film, we will see how Walter grows up. He is still weird with all of his inventions. He embraced his weirdness, because his mother loves him the way he is, telling him “What’s wrong with weird?….. The world needs weird!” His mother always got his back and that’s what he is holding on to, even if she’s been gone. He is very confident with himself, that he doesn’t need to fight fire with fire but he can save the world with a hug and glitters.
How we are to our children, is what they will be when they will become when they grow up. It is up to us. I suddenly remember what people say when someone is a meany – “hindi siya siguro mahal ng mommy niya” (maybe his mom doesn’t love him) – and we don’t want to fight with fire, but just ignore them. It is our love that fills their heart of all the goodness that it can contain.
Well, we would all know the ending. They were able to save the world. Not really the spoiler type, right? I loved it so much because it felt like they were saying that there could be a Spies In Disguise 2. Could there be? I want more weird, the world needs more weird!
