Take 2003’s Daddy Daycare, add Jackie Chan, two large handful of martial arts, and a Russian terrorist and in 90 minutes you’ll have The Spy Next Door. In the film, Chan plays former CIA agent Bob Ho, who has no fear of the world’s worst criminals — but he can’t say the same thing about children. When one of the children accidentally downloads a top-secret formula, Bob and the children suddenly find themselves in the crosshairs of the spy’s worst enemy. Who said babysitters were boring?
