If you've seen the trailer for this Jackie Chan family comedy, the following reviews should come as no surprise. At all.
"...entertaining in spots but too obviously low-budget."
— Daniel Eagan, Hollywood Reporter
"Chan’s new all-ages vehicle is smooth like oatmeal. It's hard to imagine anyone being offended, except fans of good comedy."
— Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
"It's a sad day for Jackie Chan fans when the action-comedy star is reduced to a vehicle as lame as The Spy Next Door."
— Lael Lowenstein, Variety
"...immediately forgettable family entertainment, suitable for release only in the dung-heap month of January."
— Melissa Anderson, Village Voice
"Wast[es] no time setting a precedent for 2010 ineptness..."
