THE SPY NEXT DOOR (Theatrical 2010 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.3|5.0 Starsììì

The Spy Next Door delivers Jackie Chan as a family man and somehow fails in presentation. The movie quickly turns into a ‘wannabe spy movie with kids’ and further complicates itself with the unholy casting of Billy Ray Cyrus and George Lopez as the other two parts of this trinity. Nothing seems to work in this film.

Storyline

CIA Agent Bob Ho (Jackie Chan) finds it is not so easy to retire from the CIA.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director  Bryan Levant for directing effort. Thank you to Executive Producers Ryan Kavanaugh, Ira Shuman, Solon So, and Tucker Tooley for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Gillian (Amber Valletta), Farren (Madeline Carroll), Ian (Will Shadley), Nora (Alina Foley), Anton Poldark (Magnús Scheving), Colton James (Billy Ray Cyrus), Glaze (George Lopez), Creel (Katherine Boecher), and Cute Girl (Mia Stallard).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. For the hard-core Jackie Chan fan, the film works; but, for the person looking for a film along this same storyline, a better watch is The Pacifier with Vin Diesel.
