As it has happened in at least two more titles, the makers of the film sponsored a photo-manipulation contest in Worth 1000 (the well known photo-manipulation site), on which the participants were asked to create photo-realistic images of the world as if it were ruled by spies. See more »

With the kid, we originally wanted to see "Schreck 4" in 3D but it was sold out. Thus, we changed for this one because the kid likes very much Jackie Chan and as it involved kids, I knew that mine would feel related.
As the movie started, I thought that Chan was already an icon in my teens so this guy is really tireless and he worths an official recognition for his dedication toward world cinema.
However I felt a bit disappointed because the story didn't take place in Asia but in a deep American suburb. So, there wasn't much of exoticism.
Fortunately, it happens that the story was a funny coincidence with my recent experience. Jackie and I were given the responsibility to take care after kids while the lone mother was away. It was thus cool to see our different or similar reactions.
Beyond this, the movie is a bit slow and lacks of rhythm. The kids aren't engaging so the action was welcomed. Even as a nanny, Chan had to fight and I'm dubious if it was really him in certain sequences (I would need a frame to frame analysis to judge).
At the end, it was cool to see the bloopers, to notice that the mother was Amber Valetta (who seems to have aged for 20 years since "Hitch") and the kid liked the movie! Thus, mission accomplished!
