Short Version: If you have pre-teen kids, they’ll probably have a great time watching the action and humor in The Spy Next Door – and it’s enjoyable enough for parents, too.
My expectations weren’t very high going into the theater to watch The Spy Next Door – but since my 7 year old daughter seemed excited to watch it, I figured I’d take her and go tough it out. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the movie is actually pretty good. Sure it has a ridiculous plot, over-the-top bad guys with bumbling henchmen and second rate secondary characters played by former country singing, mullet wearing, fathers of a pre-teen Disney show – but it also manages to stay on task by keeping the story consistent and coherent enough for children to follow.
The movie opens with a great montage »
