[3.50/10] The Spy Next Door (2010)

The Spy Next Door (2010)

"The Spy Next Door"' story is overly simple and has been done to death already. It seemed like a copy of the crappy Vin Diesel movie "The Pacifier", just a notch better than the last mentioned. The film misfires in every way you can imagine, except that it is shot in color. The acting of the main stars as well as the supporting cast was rock bottom, with none of the timing that comedians are supposed to be good at. Instead of avoiding stereotypes, the film embraces them in shallow ways, such as the improbable Russian accents. From an action movie standpoint, the film spends its tension unwisely. With the exception of a creative scene involving kitchen implements, the fight sequences are just not very impressive. "The Spy Next Door" makes little to no attempt to even be a good movie. It's all recycled drivel, with nothing remotely original about it.
