Added DiffLines:

* MsFanservice: Farren wants to be this, but obviously neither Bob nor Gillian are going to allow a 13 year old to be so

Added DiffLines:

* JerkassHasaPoint: Farren does have a point that when Bob came over to their house prior to the movie's events, it was only to see Gillian, and Bob never even spoke to the 3 kids.


Creator/{{Jackie Chan}}'s only movie aimed directly at kids, rather than families. It features Billy Ray Cyrus and GeorgeLopez, Amber Valleta (as Gillian) from ''Gamer'' and ''The Transporter 2'' and three kids. Thankfully, later in the same year (2010), Chan made ''{{The Karate Kid}}'', a much better film.

* BilingualBonus: Bob singing lullabies to Nora in Chinese. Doubles as TheCastShowoff due to JackieChan's classically-trained and seldom-used singing pipes.

* StockFootage: Again, with using scenes of Jackie Chan's older films ([[OlderThanTheyThink including a scene from Armor of God]]) at the start to introduce him as a martial arts badass spy.

Added DiffLines:

* CallingParentsByTheirName: Bob notices that Farren calls Gillian by her first name instead of "mom". When he talks to Farren about this, she explains that it is because Gillian is not her birth mom, but her stepmom.


* ActorAllusion: Scenes of other Jackie Chan films are shown at the start, and Jackie makes a reference to his real life career in which he states he was an orphan living with non-blood "brothers" who stuck up to each other. In truth, not an orphan but was left at an academy of opera by his parents for 10 years. Not to mention, at one brief scene a DVD copy of {{Rush Hour}} is seen.
** The name "Chon Wang" from ShanghaiNoon was intended to sound like Western icon JohnWayne - now Jackie stars in a comedy as [[BobHope "Bob Ho"]].
** Billy Ray Cyrus brings with him HannahMontana-level {{Malaproper}}s.
--> "He's as gone as [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar the rum cake at an AA meeting!]]"


Added DiffLines:

* NerdsSpeakKlingon: While snooping around on Bob's computer, Ian finds some interesting files.
-->'''Ian''': Farren, do you realize what this is?\\
'''Farren''': It's got you all worked up. Let me guess, a Klingon dictionary?\\
'''Ian''': You have me confused with an entirely different class of geek.


** [[SarcasmMode Of course,]] [[UnfortunateImplications because anyone who can speak Russian is automatically a villain.]]
