Having watched it 10 times because my wife has watched it 30 times, our kids now ask to watch it too.
It really has something for the whole family and it's good clean fun. It's not an Oscar movie but that's OK because i don't think they intended it to be that polished or intense - just an all around good movie.
It has the classic conflict of deciding which is more important - family or the job. JC can't "have it all" but sure tries hard and gets very close.
Good thing we upgraded to the DVD, the tape was wearing out!
