Great Movie

This is the first time that I saw Batista in a movie. I laughed often and enjoyed it completely. Didn't realize what a great sense of humor Batista has. Great cast of actors.

Predicatable but fun family film

There are no great surprises in this story of a tough CIA agent who, through a contrived set of circumstances, ends up hanging out with the 9 year old girl he's supposed to be watching. However, it's far funnier than we expected and elicited chuckles from adults and teens alike. Bautista doesn't take himself too seriously and the film pokes fun at itself...

You don't have to see it now. Because there's little else to recommend this workaday revamp of the Kindergarten Cop formula, where a tough he-man is undone by some kiddies while solving a crime.

Segal just about keeps the action scenes ticking over. There's more fun to be had here than we had any right to imagine.

This big-spy-meets-little-kid comedy isn't funny enough for teens, but not really suitable for younger viewers either.

Bautista is amiable company, although he seems bemused at having to take dodgeballs to the face this early in his movie career, and perhaps by the mixed messaging.

The charm of the film lies exactly in its mix of tones and genres: globetrotting action is pitted against domestic comedy, with the latter triumphing over the former.

Former wrestler Bautista is adept at both physical and verbal humour and, teamed with former Flight of the Concords' co-star Schaal, there are plenty of laugh-out-loud moments for viewers of all ages.

A light and breezy reworking of a familiar set-up.
