    A mostly inoffensive nothing of a film with one or two mild chuckles and lots of chop-socky commotion. show more

    Chan has more chemistry with the kids than with Valletta, but the story is so insipid that it's likely to only sadden fans of the martial-arts icon and offer little enjoyment to its young audience. show more

    The plot may be forgettable, but the execution is frantic and funny. The Spy Next Door is a movie that will bring smiles to kids - and their grandparents. show more

    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. show more

    Everybody knew to wait for the outtakes during the closing credits, because you'd see him miss a fire escape or land wrong in the truck going under the bridge. Now the outtakes involve his use of the English language. show more

    This is “True Lies” without the striptease or the Arab-maiming. show more

    The film’s so formulaic your 6-year-old will be ticking off the plot points as they lope by. show more

    The makers of The Spy Next Door should give 50 percent of their profits to James Cameron for ripping off "True Lies." Let's see, what's 50 percent of nothing? show more

    Jennie Punter The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    Chan's comedic gifts and still-nimble moves are wasted in a string of unimaginative household calamities and practical jokes. show more

    Perhaps not one of Jackie's most action packed films, but definitely one of the most clever. A terrific blend of parody and family fun!
