Great Laughs with The Spy Next Door

To be honest, I was not all hell-bent on watching the flick The Spy Next Door starring Jackie Chan in the beginning. Why? I never liked Jackie Chan movies!!! I always felt that his movies were on the brink of corny. However, after being invited to catch a special screening of the film last Thursday, January 14 at SM Megamall, all my perceptions about Jackie Chan changed! He was HILARIOUS! I loved this movie. It had a good mix of comedy, family drama and action all rolled into one.

The story revolves around secret agent Bob Ho as he contemplates giving up his high-action spy life to settle down with his girlfriend Gillian (played by Amber Valletta). This decision apparently brings Bob's biggest challenge: getting Gillian's three kids to welcome him into the fold. However, chaos ensues when Russian terrorists discover that one of the kids inadvertently downloads a formula for their newest weapon.

What I liked best about the film is the impeccable timing of comedy, not just on the part of Jackie Chan, but also that of the characters of the three kids. It was a great way to end the work week for sure!

Directed by Brian Levant and released here in Manila by Viva International Pictures. Catch The Spy Next Door in theaters nationwide starting January 15, 2009.

Much thanks to Viva International Pictures through the coordination of Az Colladilla for the Bloggers invitation to the special screening!
