Director Robert Rodriguez edited the movie in his "garage." His garage is really a state of the art editing studio that is in his home, but he calls it his garage.
Spy work, that's easy. Keeping a family together, that's difficult. And that's the mission worth fighting for.
Just before the kids meet Machete, the cab drives away, and we hear the sound of it speeding into the distance. But the car is reflected in a nearby window and it can be seen that it just drove ten feet away to get out of the shot.
Asides from the Dimension Films and Troublemaker Studios logos, there are no opening credits beyond the title.
A longer version of the film, titled "Spy Kids: Special Edition" was re-issued in US theaters on August 8, 2001. It contained a new scene involving a cave full of sleeping sharks. The scene was always intended to be in the movie, but the original budget did not allow for the special effects needed. After the movie was a hit, Rodriguez was able to complete the scene. This scene was not included in the DVD release of the film, which featured the original theatrical version. However, this scene is available on the Blu-ray.
