Purely Fun Family Film
24 March 2007 | by (.: Fiendish Writings in the Dark :.) – See all my reviews

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...

the Fiend :.
