Directed by Peter Segal. With Dave Bautista, Chloe Coleman, Parisa Fitz-Henley, Kristen Schaal. A hardened CIA operative finds himself at the mercy of a precocious 9-year-old girl, having been sent undercover to surveil her family.
A surprisingly well done movie that I had very low expectations, after all it’s just another retelling of Kindergarden Cop, The Pacifier, or even Playing with Fire, in which a overly manly man is forced to hang out with kids, and thus becomes a big old softy by the end of the story. The trailers didn’t do it justice and it went straight to Prime Video, which prepandemic was a sure sign that it wasn’t going to be all that fantastic. I’m here to tell you though, it was a quality story that I enjoyed.
