2003 · Canada - Robert Vince
The movie opens as Minkey, a super-spy primate with uncanny abilities, rescues his partner Mike Muggins (Chris Potter) from Middle Eastern terrorists. Their secretary, Edith (Debra Jo Rupp) congratulates them as the two best spies in the business, but Mikes informs her that he is going to retire to be with his wife and daughter. The movie then flashes forward ten years. Mike's wife (never named in the movie) had died, and his daughter, Amelia (Emma Roberts), is a child prodigy, having invented a revolutionary oxygen iodide laser drill. Amelia is about to receive the prestigious National Scientific Achievement Award from the world's two leading scientists, Dr. Robert Farley (Richard Kind)and Dr. Claudette Amour (Musetta Vander). Mike encourages her, telling her how proud he is of her, and also reminds her that Minkey is in town, now the star of a circus show. Mike offers to take Amelia to Minkey's show, but Amelia laughs it off, remembering those "silly stories" he used to tell her about life as a spy.
