The Spy Next Door leaves its stealth at home 

Jackie Chan, George Lopez and Billy Ray Cyrus make for an indifferent flick.

Jackie Chan is probably too old to once again break every bone in his body, so you can’t blame him for dialing down the scope gravitas of his action exploits. In The Spy Next Door, Chan, who is put in charge of Amber Valetta’s brood of moody, shrill brats when plot contrivances spirit her away, wows the kids with adding a martial arts flair to practical tasks like getting breakfast on the table. The Spy Next Door also features vaunted middle-brow personalities like George Lopez and Billy Ray Cyrus---the kind of names that either inspire indifference or skewer the senses---or maybe just make you want to see a different movie.
