The idea of the family having a pet duck was introduced by Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant when their script had Jackie Chan attached. The running joke was that Chan's plan to kill the duck and cook it for dinner horrified the kids, and therefore Chan ended up reluctantly keeping and taking care of the pet. Even when Chan exited the project and other writers worked on the script, the duck stayed all the way through to the finished film. See more »
In the end scene when Captain Fawcett and the Koreans are being arrested they are being arrested by the FBI. However, as Captain Fawcett is in the Navy and the case is related to the navy, then NCIS would've been the federal agency involved in the arrest. See more »

Vin Diesel? In a Comedy? Yes! And he's awesome! I'm hoping this doesn't indicate a genre change for Diesel-I love watching his actioners, but when he decides he needs to retire, he should definitely give comedy a sincere consideration. This wasn't "awesome," but it was highly enjoyable.
The premise has been done before...when I saw the previews for this work, I thought, "Just another Suburban Commando ripoff." I'm happy to report that this endeavor is so much more than that, and stands alone, without any connection to that work than a military character in a suburban setting. Everything else is different, and well executed by these gifted child actors and Vin Diesel in his most lovable role.
I highly recommend this work to any family who are looking for something worthy in which to invest their movie time.
It rates a 7.6/10 from...
