UNTIL THIS YEAR, http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000329/ - HAD the ABILITY to BE LIKEABLE EVEN in DREK LIKE OUR 1997 WORST PICTURE "WINNER" http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0118577/awards - (IN WHICH HE WAS the ONLY ACTOR WHO DIDN'T COME OFF as a TOTAL IDIOT).
 
BUT with http://www.razzies.com/forum/the-spy-next-door_forum408&SID=d1bz2f7991962568c1f59fe24z6db747.html -  HAVING GOTTEN  http://www.razzies.com/forum/reviews-on-spy-next-door_topic4053.html - and the NEPOTISM-TAINTED http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1155076/ - - (IN WHICH HE PLAYS a REVAMPED VERSION of "MR. MIYAGI") SET for RELEASE in JUNE, CHAN's DAYS of CHARMING the MOVIE-GOING PUBLIC MAY BE COMING to an END.
 
ADD in THAT SPY CO-STARS 2009 RAZZIE® "WINNER"  http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1114677/ - , and WAS DIRECTED by 2-TIME RAZZIE® NOMINEE (and 1 TIME RAZZIE® "WINNER") http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0505152/awards - , and YOU CAN SEE WHY CHAN IS LIKELIER to BELONG AT OUR AWARDS in SPRING of 2011 THAN THOSE HOSTED by the ACADEMY of MOTION PICTURE FARTS and SCIENTOLOGISTS.
 
IF HE DOES ATTEND OUR SHOW, "WINS," and MAKES a SPEECH, HE COULD BE as CHARMING as EVER. BUT by THEN, IT MAY BE TOO LATE to SALVAGE HIS  ONCE SUCCESSFUL CAREER...
 
 
CHAN: "If I swing far enough...can I get out of this movie?!?!?"

I think Jackie Chan's best years are behind him. Do yourself a favor, Vits, don't see this movie. Rent and watch "Legend of Drunken Master" instead. That's Jackie Chan at his best!

Everyone realizes this is part of a trilogy, right?  First, there was Suburban Commando with Hulk Hogan, then there was The Pacifier with Vin Diesel, and now there is The Spy Next Door with Jackie Chan.  This could actually be environmentally friendly.  Put these three in a gift set and it will save Santa lots of coal during Christmas! . . .

For some reason, Hollywood thinks every generation needs an "action hero breaking type by starring in a family friendly, baby sitting" comedy. Arnold in "Kindergarten Cop" in the 1980s, then Hulk Hogan as "Mister Nanny" in the 1990s, Vin Diesel's "The Pacifier" in the 2000s, and now Jackie Chan in 2010's "Spy Next Door". What will 2020 bring us? Matt Damon in "The Bourne Daycare Center"?

I take it, it was funny in a "look at these guys being out of their league" sort of way?

No, I was hoping for a "these guys are way out of their element" type of thing.

I saw this movie last night. What can I say? Awful, dumb, pathetic.
 
So, for your early consideration:
 
Worst Movie
Worst Director Brian Levant
Worst Actor Jackie Chan
Worst Supporting Actress Katherine Boecher
Worst Supporting Actor Billy Ray Cyrus, Magnus Scheving, Lucas Till, and/or George Lopez (also for Valentine's Day and Marmaduke)
Worst Screenplay (three people wrote this?!?!)

The more writers a movie has, the worse it is. Brian Levant also directed THE FLINTSTONES, which had 35 writers!

35 writers -- WOW! Wacko   

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: And all 35 of 'em jointly "won" our Worst Screenplay award for 1994 -- For the morbidly curious, here's http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0109813/awards - to check out the complete list of names, which we could never have fit on a RAZZIE statuette's tiny plaque. You'll have to scroll down past the MTV Award listing to read 'em, but I'm pretty sure ALL 35 WRITERS are listed... 



-------------
My Picks... so far:
Worst Picture BUCKY LARSON
Worst Actor Shia LaBeouf
Worst Actress Martin Lawrence
Worst Sup Actor John Turturro
Worst Sup Actress Vanessa Hudgens
Worst Director Michael Bay

How many screenwriters does it take to write a good live action adaptation of an animated TV series? The world may never know!

The closest to "good" a live-action adaptation of a cartoon there has ever been was with POPEYE, JOSIE & THE PUSSYCATS and/or "GEORGE" OF THE JUNGLE, but they all got mixed reviews. Not to mention that only the latter is considered faithful to its source.

Um, no. There has NEVER been a good live action adaptation to this day. Those examples are considered among the worst. "Popeye" was considered a huge bomb, "Josie" was just one long inside joke about product placement in movies, and "George", while faithful, wasn't anything to write home about. And now that the flavor of the month is Hollywood doing adaptations of Japanese anime series, which have all been bombs so far, we're not going to have that one "good" adaptation any time soon.

This one was by far one of the worst movies I've seen this year.

Cyrus will probably get a second (consecutive!) Worst Supporting Actor nomination. Lopez was in THREE horrible movies this year so he has a good shot at a nomination. Scheving and Till are definitely longshots.

No, they don't combine movies into one award nod.

Man, Jackie Chan needs better movie roles.
 
The good:
 
Jackie Chan: Chan is the only good thing here. He's usually the lone bright spot in his (American) movies*.
 
The bad:
 
The children: Dear Hollywood, stop casting terrible child actors in your movies!
 
The script: The amount of cliches in this script is, almost, as large as the number of logic holes in Loose Change**.
 
Brian Levant: The direction for this is very crappy and bland. Mr. Jingle All The Way is crappy and bland in all his movies.
 
The ugly:
 
Billy Ray Cyrus: Miley's father/pimp*** strikes again. Not content to ruin the same genre that contained Johnny Cash and Hank Williams, BRC is dead-set on ruining movies now.
 
George Lopez: OK, who cast George Lopez as the villain? George Lopez is as threatening as those annoying kids mentioned above!
 
Well, that's a bland family film. Thankfully for Jackie, that Karate Kid remake turned out to be not-terrible. Grade: D
 
Next-up: Marmaduke!
 
*There is one Chinese Jackie Chan movie where he's the lone bright spot: Fantasy Mission Force! He's only in there for about 15 minutes, but he kicks a lot of ass in those 15 minutes!
**Funny story, while I was driving home from Le Moyne today, this car that cut me off had a bumper-sticker that said: "9/11 was an inside job." I'd like a bumper-sticker that says: "9/11 wasn't an inside job. Go back to your Phish concert hippie."
***If Encyclopedia Dramatica is to be believed.

I just saw it.

It was literally everything one would expect this to be after watching the trailer...or even reading the premise.But because of how it was what I expected,it was watchable.

It was on the edge of "harmless" and "uneducational".It has kids doing what they want.But it's only in some parts,they behave later on.And there's a scene where someone throws a TV on someone else's head without killing the latter.But if we were to ban that,we'd have to ban cartoon.

There was some major miscasting here.Whether they're the good or the bad guys,nobody(and I mean nobody)looks menacing at all.Jackie Chan looks embarassed to be here,Billy Ray Cyrus was just reading lines,but the worst was Katherine Boechner as the evil russian woman.I've heard bad accents...but good God!This was Brian Levant's best directorial effort to date.Does that sound like much?No?That's because it isn't.His shots,and also the continuity,didn't rape my eyes this time.They just touched them inappropriately.But they included cartoon sound effects!WTF!It wasn't as abundant as in LITTLE MAN,but it was still noticeable.

I give this 1/10(could've been 0).
