The only way to escape is through the garbage chute. Will Buzz Lightyear and his friends make it out? The Toy Story movie series are a favorite of mine, especially this one.

But then a mythical, magical dragon-phoenix money god lost his temper and decided to incinerate Mary. Mary rose out of the ashes and still wanted more. Now she wanted to be famous.

The Spy Next Door – Movie

Bob (Jackie Chan) has retired from the CIA in order to marry Gillian, a divorced mother of three kids. The children don’t want their mother to marry him because he is boring. When Gillian goes to help a relative, Bob volunteers to babysit. Gillian’s son downloads an ‘album’ off of Bob’s computer but it is actually a Russian top-secret formula. The Russians eventually track them down and the action begins. Will Bob be able to save his girlfriend’s children and himself? Even though Jackie Chan and Lucas Till are in this movie, I don’t recommend this movie to older kids like me because it was kind of boring and lame. The scenes with fighting were pretty fake and the...
