Excellent viewing for family...because it is a KIDS MOVIE!!!!! (by jc2ar)
Seriously, people are so affected by reviews of films that if anything comes out, it has to be the new Avatar or Dark Knight. The minute they hear Jackie Chan in a kids movie, they already hate it! What gives? Yes this movie is a kids cliché movie...but it has Jackie Chan in it! This man has more charisma than any other actor that I know of. Last year he made a violent dramatic film called Shinjuku Incident and now he plays like a father character in this one! Now that's good transition into being an actor! Anyway, don't want to spoil anything - it really is a fun movie. Ignore the <more>
other reviews because they are fan-boys expecting Jackie Chan to fight in Drunken Master III or Police Story 6 or Project A III etc etc etc.10 out of 10 easily for me...and I yawned during Avatar!
Chan makes getting older look good. (by PlutoandVenus)
If it is possible to age gracefully – and it isn't really – Jackie Chan makes a pretty good case for it in The Spy Next Door. Known for his trademark marshal arts and comedy combinations, Chan is able to turn the inevitable loss of agility in age into a comedy about a retiring spy who wants the comfort and boredom of family life. With The Spy Next Door, Chan delivers a kid's film with the tongue in cheek humor of his adult films, to the gratitude of moms everywhere.Director Brian Levant uses an array of stills from Chan's actual early career to create the secret past of the <more>
middle aged spy Bob Ho. For the adults in the audience it's wonderfully nostalgic – is that baby faced marshal artist our lovable Jackie Chan/Bob Ho? Is it really 10 years since Shanghai Noon came out? What was I doing then and why am I spending my afternoons watch PG films? My nine year old daughter is, of course, oblivious to all of this. She likes seeing Hannah Montana's dad Billy Rae Cyrus on the big screen and recognizes George Lopez from commercials, though she can't yet stay up late enough to watch his TV show. Plus she gets a kick out of the smart mouthed kids giving the adults a hard time.The plot is instantly engaging to kids and adults – a secret agent awesome! who wants to retire and get married aw! to a single Mom with three bratty kids ha ha ha! . The adults identify with the parents knocking themselves out for their kids and the kids love the extreme chaos: secret agent gadgets, Russian assassins and children behaving more deviously than the agents themselves. That a formerly death defying secret agent is nearly defeated struggling to wrangle three rebellious children is funny and something any single mom could tell you all about, but then, that isn't so funny .Though her role as a single Mom is quietly heroic, as Gillian, Amber Valetta is instantly forgettable. I had to look her up to write this piece and wasn't sure who she was even with the credits in front of me. Sufficiently emaciated as required for a Hollywood actress , Valetta is a cardboard cutout put in place to deliver her lines to keep the movie going forward. It is likely that actresses are discouraged from contributing substantively to a role designed only to highlight the male star's qualities, so I have no idea if there's more to Valetta. If so, it isn't apparent in this move. The kids Madeline Carroll Farren , Will Shadley Ian and Alina Foley Nora , fare better. They are clearly having a good time undermining the parents at every turn, even when, or perhaps especially when, they're trying to help. Carrol is excellent as a young teen, desperate for guidance and rejecting it at every opportunity. The scene of Chan trying to take down the bad guys with a four year old wrapped around his leg is parenting in a nutshell.The Spy has delightfully subtle jokes throughout that entertain the grown ups without interfering in the kids' experience. The ridiculous clothes on the Russian spy, the slow motion walk as the bad guys come to town, lines like "I've got two words for you college boy, thirteen" got me laughing while my daughter paid little attention to them. The show concludes with Chan's outtakes, letting us in on the jokes that almost got away. A movie that entertains kids is good; a movie that entertains kids and adults is a gem.
Once again universally acclaimed helmer Brian Levant, who brought upon us modern classics such as "Are We There Yet?" and "Jingle All the Way," does what he does best. And that's to deliver an intricate plot in a fun and jam-packed thrill ride that you'll likely to never forget. The movie's lead, Jackie Chan, provides the charisma and on screen presence rarely seen these days, and I'm almost certain the academy will take notice. The supporting roles filled in by George Lopez, veteran Billy Ray Cyrus, and Amber Valletta are all wonderfully developed and <more>
fleshed out. The child actors on display here also do a fantastic job, and I see nothing but a bright future in front of them. I have never seen such true raw emotions evoked in a film before. Truly unprecedented work here. I don't intent on overselling this film, since my review is written right after watching it at an exclusive premier in Canada, but this movie is truly a gem. From the very first lines to the last, the movie never lets up and doesn't get clogged up in any flat jokes thanks to writers James Greer and Jonathan Bernstein who have previously collaborated on "Larry the Cable Guy: Health Inspector" and "Max Keeble's Big Move" . The transitions are smooth, and the pacing is unrelenting. Never before has a family comedy been this effective. The new year has barely begun, and we've already had our first masterpiece of the new decade.
One great family comedy with Jackie Chan in great form! (by mrcibubur)
This is without doubt the surprise film of the year 2010 so far and is a rare comedy which will make you laugh from beginning to end. Never mind the predictable story line and the awful Russian accents, in fact they actually add the comedy and fun of the movie. this is no blockbuster but in its own way it is because it is a kids film for all the family, guaranteed to spill your pop corn while watching and keep you from dozing off on a Saturday afternoon,hey dad, wake up! this is not your normal Jackie Chan movie but it does show you in action defending a cause. Cameron Diaz lookalike Amber <more>
Valetta plays the sweet and naive Gillian and the the three kids are just a whole load of fun.a film should entertain and this definitely does. doubt Jackie Chan will even be considered for Oscar nomination but this ranks for me up there with Gerard butler in law abiding C and Morgan Freeman in Invictus, a refreshing comedy with no sexual overtones, no bad language, nothing unnecessary which could remotely offend.whats more we have a film with a happy ending and at times during the film brings tears to your eyes. the script and the dialogue are first class and the action scenes every bit as memorable as anything in movies such as Transformers or previous 'chinese' Jackie Chan movies.Maybe Chan is doing what George Segal should consider and adapting his acting prowess, Jackie Chan demonstrates so much acting ability in this film and full credit to him.wow, what an absolutely delightful and enjoyable, don't miss it!
EXCELLENT MOVIE, are the critics all mad? (by cfrafihbari)
Reading some of the critics I just felt I had to write something about this movie. I find it amazing that this movie got scores like 13% and one or two stars. This is in family-friendly children's movie but somehow people expect to see blood diamond drama, Some of them even complained that the villain is too stereotypical and too funny to be taken seriously. I mean if they really wanted a scary villain they wouldn't have hired comedian George Lopez , or Mr. Sportacus from children's show and make him dress up like clown. What do u expect? The children I must say where superb <more>
because in this film they all look like real children from the hyperactive three years old, gadget curious boy to the unruly teenager girl. the girl, Faaren throwing a pillow was as natural as it was funny. her speech at the end was also excellent. The more I watch movies like 'karate kid where the a 10-year-old try behave like 30 years old, not to mention the lap dances and French kissing the more I find the kids in this movie totally refreshing and lovable. This is one of the few movies where there is no bad words, unnecessary rudeness and blood. So you don't have to hold your hands over the eyes of the kids. Even the fight scenes looked more like a comedy circus. And it teaches about friendship, politeness, respect and giving people a second chance. That's a simple idea and ends up having a stronger message than philosophical depressing drama movies like pursuit of happiness. This movie was nonstop fun and action, comedy, drama with great message that everyone of all ages will enjoy. For the critics out there can you find me another movie that packs all this? It ranks right up there with Kung Fu panda which too coincidentally had Jackie Chan albeit as an animation. It would also make a great as gift for families. I truly wish there were more films like this. Lastly I want to thank Jacky Chan. He is a great friendly guy so he is perfect for kids movies compared to say Arnold or Vin diesel. Also It was great they got Mr Sportacus Magnús Scheving. He is another amazing guy; I wish they had him in more films.
Wow, people need to get a grip when they review a kids film! Sure the premise has been used before & sure the bad guys are cheesy. They are supposed to be.This movie has OK action, corny dialogue, and an absolutely wonderful message. Not every movie has to win awards to be great. Some movies are simply great because you get to spend time with your kids & the flick has a redeeming message.This movie has no sex, no language, and merely comedic violence. What a refreshing idea! I loved that my 13 year old boy & 10 year old daughter enjoyed it & both got the message that family is <more>
who loves you not whose blood runs in you.I would highly recommend this movie to anyone with children or to anyone who is sick of Hollywood "morals" being forced down our throats. A very family friendly movie.Come with a good attitude. Enjoy the popcorn & a coke. Watch a decent flick & enjoy time with your family.
This Is a Very good Jackie Chan movie !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it is hilarious and definitely a treat for kids the movie rocks man [email protected]@@@@@@@@@@@ Well perhaps not the best but definitely a good one it is a spend for moneyBob Ho, a Chinese spy working with the CIA to stop a man named Poldark. He's been posing as an importer and has been dating his neighbor, Gillian, a single mother with 3 children. When Bob captures Poldark, he retires from the spy game. He wants to make a commitment to Gillian but her children are not exactly warming up to him. When Gillian has to go out of town Bob <more>
offers to take care of the kids while she's away, which proves to be no easy task. At the same time, Poldark somehow escapes. It's apparent that some in the Agency helped him. At the same time Colton one of Bob's associates at the CIA asks him to look at something that Poldark had on him that appears to encrypted, hoping he can crack it.When the children break into his home to see what they can find out about him, they find the file and download it. And when they try to open it, Poldark tracks it down and sends his people to take care of Ho. Bob manages to deal with them and then takes the children and goes on the run.
The Spy Next DoorWhen I first heard of this movie, I thought "is this a remake of the Pacifier with an Asian guy?" Jackie Chan was in it and I wanted to watch it, despite negative reviews. I saw it and though it may share many, yes many similarities with The Pacifier retired/undercover spy, the boss a traitor, loving kid, hateful kid etc this is good in its own way.The Pluses: Mainly the cast, Billy Ray Cyrus George Lopez and who could forget JACKIE CHAN!!!! Jackie's action scenesThe Minuses: Too corny, and too similar to the Pacifier. needed more originality Overall, The Spy <more>
Next Door is a great family flick for those who love Jackie Chan. Give it a try. I just wish they could have been more original.
