A Nice Start...
10 December 2004 | by (Chicago, Illinois) – See all my reviews

I like this movie because it shows the rewards of both study and hard work. I like it because Flynn is genuinely nice and naive, while still an able hero. I like his sidekick/enforcer, Nicole No one (There is a "trust No one" line, of course), played with aplomb by Sonya Walger. And of course, there is no way anyone can miss a movie where Bob Newhart sports a Marine Tattoo on his chest and engages in martial arts fighting!

This is a move that the family can watch with no worries at all. The pilot had a lot of setup work to do, but it got it done, so the next movie, or hopefully the weekly series, will be less hokey in the setup. Here's hoping for a series.
