Tim Allen's neighbor who's dog urinating at beginning of film is named Baxter. Tim Allen plays Mike Baxter on ABC's Last Man Standing. Disney owns ABC. The pound employee also on Last Man Standing as a preschool teacher. See more »
The music Josh Douglas sings is from the movie Grease, not the stage version of Grease. Also you can hear John Travolta singing Greased Lightening, again from the movie. See more »
Went today to see this film. another remake but admittedly haven't seen the original. And I personally thought it was OK. Had three kids with me...14 yr old 8 yr old and 6yr old who all sat watching it, enjoying it and laughing away. Me too. Tim Allen was great as usual and def suits the comedy side of acting. Bit samey with the oldest child a teenage daughter who wears different clothes and wants to be rebellious...father works a lot and isn't the most committed father..mother who seems to do it all and has had enough and then the younger son who just seems to want to do his own thing but hasn't the nerve to say it. BUT apart from that the dog was great, Tim Allen and Robery Downey Jnr were great(nice to see Downey in something), some funny scenes with the actors and with the animals. Bit slow to start with but gets better. Def entertaining for kids and adults..if only Disney done more like this, seem to have dome some fantastic films years ago and then lost the plot a bit. Worth seeing
