A friend persuades the former wrestling star Sean to do a job as bodyguard for the two kids of top manager Frank Mason - someone is threatening him to get the plans for a secret micro chip. But when Sean arrives at his house it turns out that he'll not only have to bodyguard the spoiled brats, but also be their nanny, since they again scared away their former one. From then on he's occupied more protecting himself from the kids than them from the villain. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

Thanatos: I ordered you to throw that match, cost me money, big money!
Burt Wilson: Oh yeah? Bigger than your hair?
Sean Armstrong: We don't throw matches.
Burt Wilson: Yeah, tell ya what, if you was soaked in some gasoline, we'd throw some matches, y'know the flaming kind, and with that fur-ball on top of your head, you'd make one hell of a torch.

Hulk can act!
12 February 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Hulk Hogan isn't an Oscar winner by any means, but he can act. His soft side is evident when he has to kiss the doll and sing corny songs.

Hogan wasn't given much to work with here, so he had to take his money and run. Sherman Helmsley will drive you up a wall in this film, as will the spoiled rich kids.

David Johanson (Buster Poindexter) makes an appearance as a weirdo trying to steal a chip worth millions from Austin Pendleton, the childrens father.

A step down from No Holds Barred and Suburban Commando, but still watchable.
