Though mixing espionage and family values in unraveling dysfunctional behavior among a bratty brood of siblings may be a stretch, Jackie Chan makes the most of it in his latest caper targeting unruly kids.
[The movie] is [likable], bringing a peppy energy to Bob's segue from international spy to babysitter.
| Original Score: 3/5
Jackie Chan always guarantees a good time with his friendly manner combined with intricate fight stunts inventively choreographed and smoothly executed and this is no exception
Filled with hilarious set ups, impossibly executed stunts plus an engaging central story about family and being loved, this funny action comedy is great entertainment for the whole family
Filled with slapstick guffaws, dodgy accents and copious pratfalls, Brian Levant's light-hearted action comedy succeeds because it stays true to what it actually is: a kids' movie.
This is not one of Jackie Chan's best films, but it's still fun to watch Chan pull out all the stops to entertain us at an age when many actors have stopped trying.
Those old enough to resist can expect to be impressed anyway by the on-screen energy levels of both Chan and Valletta. They make their work look like fun.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
The plot may be forgettable, but the execution is frantic and funny.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Jackie Chan, the most graceful and acrobatic of men when it comes to action scenes, is also one of the most clumsy when it comes to dialogue.
| Original Score: B-
An entertaining comedy loaded with action and laughs for all ages. It's forgivably silly, cartoonish and far from a classic, but nonetheless feels fast, funny, fresh and harmless.
| Original Score: 7.0/10
If the lazy filmmakers don't care enough about their movie to offer at least one single original idea, then you shouldn't care enough to go see it.
| Original Score: 1/5
| Original Score: C-
This film plays it too safe and brings you only a smidgeon of charm and laughter.
| Original Score: 2/5
An uncomfortable journey for everyone involved.
This is the broad, silly kiddie exercise it appears to be.
| Original Score: 2/4
If you're still awake by the end credits, Chan's out-takes are sadly the funniest thing in this inane, silly and below-par effort. This one is for kids only.
