Bob Ho (Jackie Chan) retires from the CIA with the hopes of marrying Gillian (Amber Valletta). However, her three kids don't really approve of this plan. And the situation only gets worse when the former spy agrees to babysit, unaware that one of the youngsters has accidentally violated the cyberspace of long-term enemies.

Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in The Spy Next Door...
Gillian’s three children frequently argue, name call and wrestle. Farren also fights with her mother. Ian, a frequent liar, is bullied at school by other students who give him a wedgie and throw him in a garbage can. The children pull mean tricks on Bob. Other characters repeatedly engage in martial arts combat, using props like a knife and chairs. One character is shown with bloody cuts on his face after crashing through a window. An animal bites a man. A woman slaps a man in the face. Characters use specialized equipment such as a miniature flamethrower and rotating cutting instrument. A female character loses two teeth after a door hits her in the face. A man is whacked repeatedly on the side of the head with two cast iron skillets. Another character is struck with a bottle. One man has a TV dropped on his head. A teenager tries to leave the house in skimpy clothing on several occasions. A woman wears an ultra-tight outfit. A couple kisses briefly. The dialogue contains brief terms of Deity, name-calling and rude humor.
