The Hex is an actual University of Texas tradition, enacted before the annual Thanksgiving game against Texas A&M University. The Texas A&M Aggies had their own pre-game tradition, the Bonfire, but after a combination of factors caused a collapse in 1999 and killed 12 students, the tradition is no longer university-sponsored, it is however, still organized by the student body and done off-campus.

Except for a disconcerting bit of excessive violence towards the beginning of this type of teen comedy movie, The Man of the House handles with delicacy the balance between an older man in the same house with a bunch of female teenagers. The generational gulf is well played and the level of emotional maturity actually creeps upwards a notch in this above average female teen comedy along with Tommy Lee Jones as the straight man. An entertaining, somewhat even tense, perhaps a tad unbalanced comedy, it provided both solid humor, the expected growing up is hard to do, and pushing the envelope of teen comedy in a qualitative positive way. Eight out of Ten Stars.
