    Sucked!!! No better way to put it. It's so sad that they would even make this movie. I feel bad for anyone that was a apart of this movie. Should have never been made.

    A cheap rip off version of The Pacificier( Vin Diesel) not worth the time. I believe this was a way to say goodbye to the career of a figure like Jackie Chan

    This is it. Jackie Chan ain't no star anymore. "The Spy Next Door" says it all.

    This is a horribly written movie with horrible acting and a horrible plot. The bad guy is hard to understand his motive confusing and so are the good guy. The plot *cough*almost*cough* twist are poorly set up and amount to very little. The whole movie is illogical and unreasonable and throwing in a few *cough*almost*cough* stars didn't help.

    Oh boy... where do I start on this movie... Well, for starters, the whole plot of the story is so over-used. The acting was atrocious, and there was rarely a funny moment. There's not a lot to say about this movie other than it's terrible. Don't go see it unless you have a hankerin' for some bad acting from Billy Ray Cyrus.

    What were they thinking putting Jackie Chan in a horrible movie,to be as a spy and protecting those annoying children like this? It's like raping the master of kung-fu for putting as a spy and making fun of him with lousing slapsticks. The scenes are too cheap for the visual effects and a waste of the script,the characters are annoying,too many plot points,the jokes are not that funny,and very insulting for putting Jackie Chan in it. Come on people,it's Jackie Chan,the greatest martial arts master who fights and leaps on the poles,and making him downsize for his acting and hurting him so purpose. Even why George Lopez plays as a villain for taking over the world? He really needs to fire his agent! And why they put a teenager girl who finds this older boy so attractive and the older boy fights Jackie Chan? I don't why they make this movie so bad and please the fans will probably like it,but come one what bad movie for putting Jackie Chan on it and it's not entertaining family film for the kids! Expand

    Chan struggles gamely to charm, but the picture's cartoonish jokes and misfired gags are likely to elicit more eye rolls than laughs.

    Most of The Spy Next Door is pretty tired stuff from "Pacifier"-style slapstick to comic relief delivered by, of all people, erstwhile country star Billy Ray Cyrus.
  3. Immediately forgettable family entertainment, suitable for release only in the dung-heap month of January.
