Storyline

Charlie and Dan have been best friends and business partners for thirty years; their Manhattan public relations firm is on the verge of a huge business deal with a Japanese company. With two weeks to sew up the contract, Dan gets a surprise: a woman he married on a drunken impulse nearly nine years before (annulled the next day) shows up to tell him he's the father of her twins, now seven, and she'll be in jail for 14 days for a political protest. Dan volunteers to keep the tykes, although he's up tight and clueless. With Charlie's help is there any way they can be dad and uncle, meet the kids' expectations, and still land the account?

Trivia

Was originally supposed to be released theatrically in non-Quebec French-language markets as "Papy-Sitter" a wordplay with the French word "papy" meaning "grandpa". When Walt Disney Pictures decide to release the film straight-to-home-video in these markets due to the film's US financial failure, they instead went with the Quebec title "Les 2 Font La Père" which is a also a wordplay based on the French expression "les 2 font la paire", somewhat equivalent to "two of a kind" and the word "père" which means "father".

Easy to watch
28 December 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This was a fun family movie. Not too taxing on the brain and plenty of laughs. A few toilet jokes kept the kids amused and a few well placed adult puns made me smile.

I just wish that the television trailers hadn't shown ALL the good bits

  • which took away all the surprise funny bits and really just left the


mushy stuff in between to watch....

Travolta and Williams are living breathing classics and make the movie well worth watching.

I simply can't understand the low overall rating this movie has received up until now - it really ain't that bad....
