Very suggestive, but entertaining to watch.

This movie about a spy who is trying to not mess up his son's wedding has some very funny moments, and entertaining chemistry between Douglas and Brooks. It's not a film I'd recommend to younger teens or kids, though. There is some very provocative sexual innuendo (mainly where a man overhears dialogue between two characters and thinks they are getting intimate), other sexual references, and a homosexual kiss (one of the male characters is attracted to Brooks' character). For violence, nothing too intense, it's pretty standard action for a PG-13 film (explosions, hand-to-hand combat, and shootings). For language: one f-bomb, and other curse words (s-words included). I have not seen the original, but I do think this movie does its job at entertaining and making its audience laugh, even if it isn't the best. 6.8/10
