Brian Levant (Jingle All the Way) directs martial arts icon Jackie Chan in this family friendly action-comedy about an undercover agent up against both the Russian mafia and the three children of the single mother he's fallen for.

Artsy Gillian (Amber Valletta) leaves 'Bob Ho' (Chan) in charge of the kids for the weekend, and he uses his espionage skills in an attempt to get to grips with the brood - who cover the traditional bases of bolshie, brainy and adorable - while Poldark (Magnus Scheving) and Creel (Katherine Boecher) are the villains in a subplot involving a misappropriated chemical formula.

Levant includes homages to some of Chan's landmark movies, and the alpha male who's a fish out of water when dealing with kids is a good fit for Chan's likeable screen persona.
