Title: The Spy Next Door     

Year Of Release: 2009

Review Date: June 30, 2010

Rating: PG-13

Running time: 94 minutes

Box Office Gross: $41,612,093

Site Rating: 3 out of 10 stars

"The Spy Next Door" was a mildly entertaining film starring Jackie Chan, as Bob Ho (I was so sure it was "Bob Hope"), a Chinese spy, working for the CIA, that lives next door to the woman he loves, Gillian, a single mother, who has three rambunctious children. Rambunctious = evil. Just kidding, but they are so, how can I put this, energetic, sarcastic and strong willed, they almost broke down a trained spy. Those are some bad kids.

Bob has been dating Gillian and not telling her he is a CIA spy. This level of dishonest damages their relationship and also causes the entire film to unravel, in how this storyline was presented. Chan was funny as always and the child stars quite gifted, but the script for this movie is derivative and needs work, as it let the film down.
