A Good Family Comedy-Drama
6 September 2009 | by (utah) – See all my reviews

Tim Allen displays some serious dramatic flourishes along some of his older comedic antics in this family comedy-drama about a corporate man who is bullied and finds himself seeking revenge of him in a rematch. Unlike most family movies, the script in this movie attempts to move in a more elevated direction along with a more MRS. DOUBTFIRE (1993) or THE NANNY DIARIES (2007) level of integrity. There are bouts of over the top acting that seem to intrude briefly, but for the most part this light-weight movie packs enough of a punch to be worthy of some serious viewing. The relational aspects between Tim Allen, co-workers, his ex-, his mentor, his possible female attraction, between daughter and parents are proportioned and handled with sensitivity and usually without Hollywood eccentricity. 7/10.
