Goofs

Classified information can never be viewed outside of a cleared area - especially not in public, as when Shane looks up information on the housekeeper while in the home, or when he looks up information about the principal while out on the playground. This would be considered a serious security breach. See more »

Quotes

[when Lulu's tracker alarm beeps, Shane runs to her classroom, opens the door, and rolls in, ready for action - and sees the class staring at him, while Lulu is doing "show and tell."]

SEAL Training Doesn't Cover This
3 November 2007 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

One of the better comedies from the Walt Disney Studios in the past several years has been the Pacifier. If Arnold Schwarzenegger can manage kindergarten, than Vin Diesel can certainly babysit a whole family of a scientist who's been killed under mysterious circumstances.

Tate Donovan was doing some top secret work for the government and whoever killed him didn't get what they want. That puts his family in danger. Vin Diesel's been sent to protect them.

Of course getting into their lives wasn't included in the bargain. Mother Faith Ford has a handful with her kids who range from the teens down to the toddler. The handful is now dumped on Diesel.

Diesel's tough guy screen image is nicely played against by the kids. Look for a very nice performance by Brad Garrett as a blowhard assistant principal who Diesel puts nicely in his place.

For the conclusion, the film glides effortlessly back into the action genre we're more familiar with in Vin Diesel films.

Nice film for the whole family and try to learn the Andy Panda dance.
